Provides a templated interface and implementation that makes tracing structured data easy via System.Diagnostics, using a fluent interface. Information is traced as StructuredData, with a message template, template values, and additional properties.
Structured trace information is forwarded to an underlying TraceSource, which then sends to any configured TraceListeners, e.q. a Seq server. The interface can be used for easy integration with a dependency injection framework.
Other Essential.Diagnostics packages extend the .NET Framework System.Diagnostics trace logging with additional trace listeners. Included are colored console (that allows custom formats), SQL database (including a tool to create tables), rolling file (with custom formats), rolling XML, email (per trace or batched), and an in-memory trace listener.
The Essential.Diagnostics project also publishes structured data (semantic) tracing extensions and a fluent client library that includes easy encapsulation of activity and logical operation scopes, as well as abstractions and templated classes for a simpler logging API and support for dependency injection frameworks.
See the project site on GitHub for examples and documentation.
