add the configuration details for NLog to the documentation (when I get around
to writing it :-)
Could you point me to more information about log4net
allowing you to define your own custom logging levels? This might be
tricky to handle and is likely something for the 2.1 version or later. I
think I can add support for TRACE in the next 2.0 beta pretty easily. I
just don't know how to test it. For log4net I have a little test app
(LogChatter) that's simply a console app with a timer that emits log
events. Maybe I need to add NLog to it. Hhmmm...
the shockwave for NLogViewer. Nice; We seem to have some interface
concepts in common. Perhaps we should team up. I plan on adding
tabs but I am not sure what's the most intuitive way to do it. So many
features, so little time! :-)
So, I am curious; why another logging framework? I
looked at NLog's website and didn't see a direct answer. Don't get me
wrong, I love choices and am glad to see an alternative to log4net. It
just seems like an awful lot of work with only a small payoff. (Of
course, if you are like I am, half of the reason may be that you simply love
Thanks so much for the feedback; I look forward to your
There is a minor issue, since NLog has additional log
level (TRACE, more verbose than DEBUG) and I found no way to display this in
your application. In addition, log4net allows for defining additional log
levels, so I think the same problem may apply.
BTW. Have you seen www.xtrace.de? It supports reading
xml-formated log files and analyzing them.
BTW2. I've also started a similar project called
NLogViewer. It's more or less usable, but there's been no release yet. It
would be great if we could share some code and perhaps merge the projects,
since I've got no "resources" to actively develop it.
I hope this isn't off-topic; I think it is relevant,
if not, please excuse me.
NetLogClient 2.0 beta 3 has just been
released. It is an open source UDP log event viewer written in C#
2.0. This application should be suitable for use with Apache's log4j or log4net logging
frameworks. (log4net must be version 1.2.10 or higher).
feedback on it would be most appreciated. Just leave feedback at the
forums on the project page.
