WCF services and logging

Hi,

I've a number of WCF services and other components (not services). I'm
thinking of creating a centralized logging system. One possibility is
to create a logging service that stores everything in a database
table, but I was curieus whether this is the way to go; or are there
better alternatives to handle centralized logging in a service
oriented environment?

Thanks!

Ludwig,

What's up?

Juval has a complete logging system for WCF..if you want to do something
pre-done.

...

I think its the way to go. (the db logging part of it).

I am incorporating his mini framework piece in as well.
You can try to find it here:

Hi Sloan!

Well yes I know that one, because I did the Masterclass of Juval :)
But later on I would like to do other governance stuff like triggering
alarm if a service goed down; and so on. So maybe there are other
solutions (maybe commercial ones?) that support these needs?

I am working on a WCF solution that's in a production state. It's using
logging to a SQL Server Logging table in the Service layer.

Use log4net - it has multiple appenders of which some are suitable
for central logging.

The important part is to get the code modified to use log4net. Then
you can always get the log info where you want it via configuration.
