FUNDAMENTALS at 6:15: Logging in Windows Azure Web Sites and Cloud Services


Logging with Event Source, ETW, and SLAB

Logs are a hassle to deal with; they have no real structure, and it's hard to tell what's in there, especially if you didn't create them. The sheer number of files and types of logs is
overwhelming. Why is consuming logs so difficult? How can the new Event Source class in .NET 4.5 make logging better? How can the Semantic Logging Application Block (SLAB) help?

I'll answer these questions and show how easy it is to create structured logging. If time permits, I'll show how to leverage Reactive Extensions (Rx) to filter the event stream before it's persisted. I’ll show this in the context of Windows Azure services, but the information can be used with any .NET application.
