I'm trying to test some Splunk-y things with my Windows logs. But I want to be sure of the logs that are coming in so I can be sure I'm keeping and discarding logs properly. What I'm really looking for is something like the Windows (7, if possible) equivalent of 'logger' on unix/linux.
I found EventCreate, but as far as I can tell, I'd need to change some of my Splunk configs to use that data.
Does such a thing exist?
I should include that my hope is to write to the system and/or security logs. I realize that being able to do that presents some risks, but I'm hoping it's possible.
