Here’s a very basic log filtering /review script that you can run on a daily basis to review your SQL Server logs. It shows the last two days of log entries filtering out logon and backup entries.
-- daily log review script
SET nocount ON
CREATE TABLE #Errors
INSERT INTO #Errors
EXEC master..sp_readerrorlog -1
SELECT * FROM #Errors
WHERE DATEDIFF(DAY, LogDate, GETDATE())<2
AND ProcessInfo <> ‘Logon’
AND ProcessInfo <> ‘Backup’
DROP TABLE #Errors
I’m currently cooking up some VBScript to filter and e-mail log entries on a daily basis. I’ll publish that soon.
