Share.vbs - Event Log monitor functions for ActiveXperts Network Monitor

ActiveXperts Network Monitor ships with a powerful set of pre-defined checks. Each individual check has a static number of configuration items. To monitor other items, or to combine monitoring items, you can make use of custom VBScript checks.

Most of the built-in checks have a VBScript equivalent, implemented as a Function in a VBScript (.vbs) file. Out-of-the-box, each VBScript function monitors the same items as the built-in check. Feel free to modify a function. The VBScript check can be customized by editing the VBScript function.

To add a new VBScript-based Event Log monitoring check, do the following:

To customize the above monitoring check, click on the 'Edit button' next to the 'File selection box'. Notepad will be launched. You can now make changes to the VBScript function(s).

Function CheckShare( strComputer, strCredentials, strShare )
' Description: 
'     Check the existence of a share on a (remote) computer. Use network monitor service credentials to access the (remote) computer
' Parameters:
'     1) strComputer As String - Hostname or IP address of the computer you want to check
'     2) strCredentials As String - Specify an empty string to use Metwork Monitor service credentials.
