Available EVT Output Formats
EVT supports the following output formats:
- TEXT. Prints all output directly to the console, terminal, or DOS window. This format is the only mode of operation when EVT is executed in query mode by giving the
-q option. For an explanation of flags that can be used with EVT, see Optional EVT Command Line Flags.
- TEXTFILE. Prints all output to a log file. The file name format is evt.hostname.timestamp.log. The log is created in the current directory. To create the log in a specified directory, use the option
log_dir, where log_dir is the path to the desired directory.
- HTML. Prints HTML output to the console, terminal, or DOS window. This format is mainly for redirecting the output to another program or utility that can consume the output or redirect it to a file.
- HTMLFILE. HTMLFILE output format creates an HTML file in the current directory. The file name takes the form evt.hostname
- hostname = Machine name from where you are running EVT.
- timestamp = Number of epoch seconds (starting from January 1, 1970). This value is used solely to maintain the uniqueness of file names.
It is recommended to delete previously generated output files on a regular basis.
