You can monitor events on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server to diagnose conditions and troubleshoot problems that affect operation and performance. Microsoft Dynamics NAV uses Event Tracing for Windows (ETW), which is a subsystem of Windows operating systems. ETW provides a tracing mechanism for events that are raised by an application or service. ETW enables you to use industry standard tools such as Windows Performance Monitor and PerfView to dynamically collect data on trace events that occur on the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server. In addition, administration and operational type events are automatically recorded in the Windows Application Log of the computer that is running Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, which you can view by using Event Viewer.
