Wand3r3r's WHEA overclock util - #Beta0.2 *Updated 9-13*

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I decided to whip up a little util to scour the event viewer logs for WHEA-Errors. I found this to be a bit tedious so now it's a button click away. Update* It can also clear the event logs, or search since the last time you ran it.

Why?
They pop up if you are overclocking and the data in the processor starts getting corrupt. (Someone can elaborate and I'll put it here.)

Give it a try and let me know what you think or if you have ideas to improve it.







How does it work?
Simply run it, press the "Find WHEA errors" button and wait a bit.

Results:
A list of errors and the count.
or
No errors found text.

Refinement can be done by selecting a starting date and/or ending date to see if any happened during a known interval.
e.g. 1/1/2013 - now
history -> 1/1/2013
1/1/2013 -> 1/31/2013

Requirements:
Windows
.NET (installed for games anyway)

Usability improvements.
Added last search date, can be filtered since the last time you ran it.Can clear the event viewer logs.
*Disclaimer, I have only tested the Event Viewer clearing in a virtual machine as I want the WHEA errors that I have for testing.*

To download from google docs: File / Download, it will download everything in the zip.
1. On the google docs page it's just FILE - Download.
2. Once you have the ZIP, unzip it and run the Setup.exe
3. If you unzip it just make a shortcut from the desktop to the .exe.

Thanks.

Briefly glancing at the link, that email alert doesn't work in windows 8. Maybe I could whip up a windows service to send alerts.

Thanks for the info about how you're monitoring WHEA events. smile.gif

I'm happy to see new users like myself that contribute more than me biggrin.gif While I can help noobs like myself to a certain degree, I definitely can't make a utility like yours to help with OC's
Hope to see you around more biggrin.gif !! thumb.gif
