EventLog.GetEventLogs Method (String)
Searches for all event logs on the given computer and creates an array of EventLog objects that contain the list.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
The array of EventLog objects is a snapshot of all event logs on the computer specified by the machineName parameter when the call to GetEventLogs is made. This is not a dynamic collection, so it does not reflect the deletion or creation of logs in real time. You should verify that a log in the array exists before you read or write to it. The array usually includes at least three logs: Application, System, and Security. If you created custom logs on the specified computer, they will appear in the array as well.
