Notification Services Event Format

SQL Server 2005

Notification Services writes events to the Application log in XML format. The log entry shows the structure of the event, which can be used by some log monitoring applications to extract information from the event details.

The following table presents an example of an event written to the Application log; the event was caused by a failure to deliver a notification.

The event description contains an event description, context information about the event, such as distributor and notification class information, and the instance, application, and component names.

Note the date difference between the event header and the event description. The time of the event (13:23) is local to the computer (Pacific Standard Time in this case), and the <Notification Sent Time> value (9:23:17 PM) is Universal Time Convention (UTC), which is the same as Greenwich Mean Time.

In Windows XP and Windows Server 2003, the link at the bottom of the event description appears in errors and warnings, and contains hidden name/value pairs that identify the event. When you click the link, Windows Help and Support Center displays additional information about the event.
