Monitor the missing events in the windows event log is another way to keep your eyes on the running windows system.
You can monitor the event log file within a specified time to check if this event is missed or not.

Surprise, in a normal way I will open the event viewer of each server and search for this event during this time, this will be a time consuming job for me, and this day will be my worst day in my week to do this.
But if you have Microsoft Operations Manager 2007, you can configure a monitor to check this server at this time; if the event is located I will not be notified and the system is running well.
But if the monitor did not find this event at this time, the health state of the server will be change to warning or critical state, and I have an option to fire alert with preconfigured setting.
Also, when the health state was changed to non healthy state as you configure the monitor, when the server will be in healthy state again?
Microsoft operation manager 2007 provides us with 3 ways to reset the health state:
