Plugin for log4net

Logify Alert provides you with a plugin that allows integrating Logify reports with log4net logs.

Install the Plugin

To add the plugin to the application's code, follow the steps below.

  1. Select Tools | NuGet Package Manager | Package Manager Console from the Visual Studio main menu.

  2. Execute the command below.

    Install-Package Logify.Alert.Log4Net

  3. Execute the command below.

    WinForms applications: Install-Package Logify.Alert.Win

    Web applications: Install-Package Logify.Alert.Web

    WPF applications: Install-Package Logify.Alert.Wpf

    Console applications: Install-Package Logify.Alert.Console

Set Up the Plugin

Set up the plugin according to your target platform. The App.config example below demonstrates how to set up the plugin for a WinForms application.

<configuration>
    <configSections>
        <section name="logifyAlert" type="DevExpress.Logify.LogifyConfigSection, Logify.Alert.Win" />
    </configSections>
    <logifyAlert>
        <apiKey value="SPECIFY_YOUR_API_KEY_HERE" />
        <confirmSend value="false" />
        <customData>
            <add key="MACHINE_NAME" value="My Server" />
        </customData>
    </logifyAlert>
</configuration>

Register an Appender

Register the LogifyAlertAppender as a standard log4net appender either in the application's App.config/Web.config or a special log4net.config configuration file as follows.

<log4net>
    <root>
        <level value="ALL" />
        <appender-ref ref="LogifyAlertAppender" />
    </root>
    <appender name="LogifyAlertAppender" type="DevExpress.Logify.Alert.Log4Net.LogifyAppender, Logify.Alert.Log4Net">
    </appender>
</log4net>

Initialize the Client

Add the following code to your application's code. The example below demonstrates how to set up the plugin for a WinForms application.

using DevExpress.Logify.Win; LogifyAlert client = LogifyAlert.Instance;

Now, each time your application calls the ILog.Error log4Net method with non-empty LoggingEvent.ExceptionObject parameter, a new report is generated and sent to Logify Alert. For example:

log.Error("Test message", new Exception("Test Logify exception"));
