Follow this step by step guide to get 'logs' from your system to Logit.io:
Step 1 - Install
Installing log4net and Logit.io appender.
Install-Package log4net Install-Package log4net.Logit
Step 2 - Configuring log4net
Configuring log4net can be done in your application app.config or web.config or specific log4net configuration file.
log4net is a fully featured logging framework and has many other capabilities that are not detailed here, please see the log4net Documentation for more information.
Step 3 - Check Logit.io for your logs
Now you should view your data:
If you don't see logs take a look at How to diagnose no data in Stack below for how to diagnose common issues.
Step 5 - Log4Net Logger Overview
Log4net is a logging platform & framework for .NET that uses hierarchical logging. This allows users to selectively control which log messages are sent to a particular output target so as to not overwhelm the system.
This framework is built to prioritise speed and flexibility for the user and also features fail-stop & thread-safe functionality.
As of April of this year, the project is regarded as dormant due to the lack of active users performing code reviews, committing new code or launching new releases of Log4net.
While Log4net itself is a logging framework, it also creates internal logs of its own that users find tedious to reliably troubleshoot without the use of a tool like Hosted Logstash.
The Logit.io platform is home to both a Log4net & .NET log file analyzer built on Hosted Logstash, Elasticsearch & Kibana to make centralising your data & setting up alerts to monitor your applications easy.
