Tracing and Logging in .NET
$9.95 [eBook]


Book Cover
Learn to add instrumentation to your .NET applications.

In the ideal world, every application and component would be a black box that would work perfectly the first time, and that would fulfill its purpose without any need for human intervention or review.

In practice, this is rarely achieved. Real world applications need to be instrumented - meaning that there need to be ways for them to report on how they ware working. This may mean producing detailed trace information to determine what the program is actually doing. It may mean logging information so that users can analyze what the program actually did - information that may be essential for measuring performance, for recovering from disaster, for detecting security breaches, and more.

The .NET framework includes powerful diagnostic tools that can be used to implement effective and highly configurable instrumentation for any application or component. This ebook not only goes into more depth than the .NET documentation, it also offers insights into the design patterns supported by those classes. For example: you'll learn advanced techniques such as tracing directly into a database or creating unique trace listeners such as one that directly Emails trace information to a specified destination.
