An event, in a computing context, is any identifiable occurrence that has significance for system hardware or software. User-generated events include keystrokes and mouse clicks, among a wide variety of other possibilities. System-generated events include program loading and errors, also among a wide variety of other possibilities. An event typically represents some message, token, count, pattern, value, or marker that can be recognized within an ongoing stream of monitored inputs, such as network traffic, specific error conditions or signals, thresholds crossed, counts accumulated, and so on.
