Windows Event Log Checker

I would like to create an application that performs the following function. The application will look for existence of a certain entry in the Windows Event Log over a specified time period. If it doesn’t find the event, it will post an event back to the Windows Event log stating that it could not find the event or “Error??. If it does find the event it will post back to the event log that it found the event or “Success??. The final purpose of this application will be to discover backup processes that are hung. For example if a backup process is hung it will not post a success or failure, it will just hang on the pending process, sometimes for days. Here are the parameters:

Input

Log Name[Application, Security,Setup,System]

Source [source search term]

Event ID [event id search term]

Description [enter the search term]

Period[mins Only searches event log entries that occurred in the last

specified amount of minutes. Default is 1440 (1 Day).

Can specify ALL to search all events in logs.]

Output

This should go to the application log and I should be able to specify whatever description I want.

This application should run as a service and I should be able to run on a scheduled interval
