This function, accessible from the side menu, is a powerful diagnostic tool that centralizes critical and error events:


Add specific events recollection

Sometimes critical and error events are not enough. If you want to add more events, you can add specific event id in settings and Flexxible|SUITE VDIClient Service recollect them.

To configure it:

  1. Go to Event log recollection section and click on Settings.
  2. In the top of the view, select All in filter.
  3. Modify EventLogIdsToRead and EventLogIdsToReadDomain.
  4. Click on Save changes button.


There are two settings to customize your events recollection:

  • EventLogIdsToRead: List of event logs ids separated by ';' that are read by VDI Client together with the error and critical events.
  • EventLogIdsToReadDomain:  List of Active Directory domain names separated by ';' to which the parameter 'EventlogIdsToRead' applies. If the parameter is empty it applies to all the domains.

For example:
