Read the Audit Log

The following steps describe how to read the Audit log records.

1.  Retrieve the instance of AMT_AuditLog, where the “Name” key equals “Intel(r) AMT:Audit Log”.

2.  Invoke AMT_AuditLog.ReadRecords.


To ensure you retrieve the correct information, Intel recommends that you wrap the ReadRecords method with the lock and unlock methods (see Lock and Unlock the Audit Log).

These fields return data in Big-Endian format:

You can execute this snippet by inserting it into the execution template found here.


$auditLogRef =$wsmanConnectionObject.NewReference("SELECT * FROM AMT_AuditLog WHERE Name='Intel(r) AMT:Audit Log'")

$inputObject =$auditLogRef.CreateMethodInput("ReadRecords")


$outputObject =$auditLogRef.InvokeMethod($inputObject)

$returnValue =$outputObject.GetProperty("ReturnValue")

if($returnValue -like "0")


    $totalRecordCount =$outputObject.GetProperty("TotalRecordCount")

    $recordsReturned =$outputObject.GetProperty("RecordsReturned")

    $eventRecords =$outputObject.GetProperty("EventRecords")

    $eventRecordsBytes =[System.Convert]::FromBase64String($eventRecords.Item(0))

    $toBits1 =[system.Convert]::ToString($eventRecordsBytes[0], 2)

    $toBits2 =[system.Convert]::ToString($eventRecordsBytes[1], 2)

    $toBits1 =[string]::Join("",$toBits2)

    $auditAppID =[system.Convert]::ToInt32($toBits1, 2)
