For event Rules:

EventDisplayNumber (Event ID): $Data/EventDisplayNumber$
EventDescription (Description): $Data/EventDescription$
Publisher Name (Event Source): $Data/PublisherName$
EventCategory: $Data/EventCategory$
LoggingComputer: $Data/LoggingComputer$
EventLevel: $Data/EventLevel$
Channel: $Data/Channel$
UserName: $Data/UserName$
EventNumber: $Data/EventNumber$
Event Time: $Data/@time$

 

For event Monitors:

EventDisplayNumber (Event ID): $Data/Context/EventDisplayNumber$
EventDescription (Description): $Data/Context/EventDescription$
Publisher Name (Event Source): $Data/Context/PublisherName$
EventCategory: $Data/Context/EventCategory$
LoggingComputer: $Data/Context/LoggingComputer$
EventLevel: $Data/Context/EventLevel$
Channel: $Data/Context/Channel$
UserName: $Data/Context/UserName$
EventNumber: $Data/Context/EventNumber$
Event Time: $Data/Context/@time$

 

For Repeating Event Monitors:

EventDisplayNumber (Event ID): $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/EventDisplayNumber$
EventDescription (Description): $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/EventDescription$
Publisher Name (Event Source): $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/PublisherName$
EventCategory: $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/EventCategory$
LoggingComputer: $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/LoggingComputer$
EventLevel: $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/EventLevel$

EventNumber: $Data/Context/Context/DataItem/EventNumber$

 

Performance Threshold Monitors:

Object (Perf Object Name): $Data/Context/ObjectName$
Counter (Perf Counter Name): $Data/Context/CounterName$
Instance (Perf Instance Name): $Data/Context/InstanceName$
*Value (Perf Counter Value): $Data/Context/Value$
**Last Sampled Value $Data/Context/SampleValue$

*Value will show the actual performance value for simple and avg monitors. It will show number of samples for consecutive threshold monitors.
**Last Sampled Value works to show the last value evaluated in a consecutive sample value monitor.
