About the Windows Update Event Monitor

The Windows Update Event Monitor checks specified servers and alerts if patches and updates from Windows Update have not been installed recently. It provides a simple way to be reminded about machines that may otherwise fly under the radar when it comes to Windows updates.

Getting Started

To begin, create a new Windows Update Event Monitor and add the applicable network devices. In the event monitor's settings, choose the number of days since an update was last installed that you want to trigger an alert. You can specify different numbers of days for different alert levels.

Alerting Settings

Below this option, you can check a box that will include the last update applied to the machine in all alert notifications. Use this to stay informed on exactly how far behind your machines are when it comes to versioning and patches.
