Writing non-error events?

Hi, all,

Is there any way to write non-error event log entries, or is
IoWriteErrorLogEntry the only one available to drivers?

    It is common practice to use IoWriteErrorLogEntry to write all levels of information messages to the system event log.

    Don’t let the name of this ancient function (which is a PITA to use) fool you. It was created before there was an event logging subsystem.
