Enterprise Library Logging Sample

Using Enterprise Library (still on 5), You can declaratively configure the logger properties (including desired formatting, see Textformatter template below)) in the app.config’s appsettings:

  <loggingConfiguration name="Logging Application Block" tracingEnabled="true"
  defaultCategory="General" logWarningsWhenNoCategoriesMatch="true">   <listeners>    <add name="Event Log Listener" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.TraceListeners.FormattedEventLogTraceListener, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
    listenerDataType="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Configuration.FormattedEventLogTraceListenerData, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
    source="Enterprise Library Logging" formatter="Text Formatter 2"
    log="" machineName="." traceOutputOptions="None" />    <add name="Rolling Flat File Trace Listener" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.TraceListeners.RollingFlatFileTraceListener, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"

    footer="" formatter="Text Formatter" header="" rollFileExistsBehavior="Increment"
    rollInterval="Day" rollSizeKB="1000" maxArchivedFiles="10" traceOutputOptions="None" />    <add name="Flat File Trace Listener" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.TraceListeners.FlatFileTraceListener, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"

    footer="" formatter="Text Formatter" header="" rollFileExistsBehavior="Increment"
    rollInterval="Hour" rollSizeKB="100" maxArchivedFiles="10" filter="All" />   </listeners>   <formatters>    <add type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Formatters.TextFormatter, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
    template="Timestamp	 {timestamp}	Message	 {message}	Category	 {category}	Priority	 {priority}	EventId	 {eventid}	Severity	 {severity}	Title	{title}	Machine	 {localMachine}	App Domain	 {localAppDomain}	ProcessId	 {localProcessId}	Process Name	 {localProcessName}	Thread Name	 {threadName}	Win32 ThreadId	{win32ThreadId}	Extended Properties	 {dictionary({key} - {value})}"

    name="Text Formatter 2" />   </formatters>

      postHandlingAction="NotifyRethrow">       <exceptionHandlers>        <add name="Logging Exception Handler" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.Logging.LoggingExceptionHandler, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.Logging, Version=5.0.505.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"
        logCategory="Exceptions" eventId="100" severity="Error" title="Enterprise Library Exception Handling"
        formatterType="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.TextExceptionFormatter, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling"
        priority="0" />       </exceptionHandlers>      </add>     </exceptionTypes>    </add>   </exceptionPolicies>  </exceptionHandling>  <appSettings> 

Import and call the logger like so:

using Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.Logging;  

using Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging;  

Logger.Write("regex:RegExRecordingFileGroup - target:" + "\t" + _filenamenoext + "\t" + strGroups); 

Which outputs: image and

image,

the  latter can be easily imported and analyzed in MS-Excel:

image

These are obviously only the simplest examples, study the Enterprise Library documentation for more customization

How you can resolve Enterprise Library 5 Visual Studio 2012 error: "Could not locate the Enterprise Library binaries required to launch the configuration console"

  1. When right-clicking on my App.config to access the Enterprise Library configuration tool, I kept getting this error:entlib5install2
  2. after installing
    1. VS.net 2012;
    2. Enterprise library 5.0.414 through nuget (why does nuget install only this older version?);
    3. the unofficial Enterprise Library Extension vsix updated for VS.net 2012 published by the Enterprise Library team here.
  3. What fixed this error for me was (YMMV, November 2012):
    1. installing Enterprise Library 5.0 optional update 1 (=5.0.515) using this approach:
      • msiexec /i "Enterprise Library 5.0.msi" REINSTALLMODE=vomus REINSTALL=ALL
    2. – Adding to the vs.net 2012 SLN file, at the end of "Global" (immediately before "EndGlobal")
      • GlobalSection(ExtensibilityGlobals) = postSolution
        EnterpriseLibraryConfigurationToolBinariesPath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Enterprise Library 5.0\Bin
        EndGlobalSection
        entlib5install
