Logging

  1. 1. Logging and why it’s the shit.
  2. 2. You are going to love logging!
  3. 3. Ever had to debug a live issue and had no information to go on?
  4. 4. The aim of logging is to tell the story of what the application is doing
  5. 5. You tell the story to ILog
  6. 6. private static readonly ILog _log = LogManager.GetLogger(typeof(Foo));
  7. 7. There are 4 different log levels
  8. 8. Info
  9. 9. High level user activity
  10. 10. _log.InfoFormat( "User {0} has just logged in", user.Id );
  11. 11. Debug
  12. 12. Details of the internal logic of a method
  13. 13. _log.DebugFormat( "User {0} needs to pay {2} bills", user.Id, user.Bills.Count );
  14. 14. Warn
  15. 15. Something suspicious has happened from which we have recovered but... if this happens a lot, we need to investigate

  17. 17. Error
  18. 18. Something went seriously wrong - this requires investigation because it means we have a bug.

  25. 25. DON’T be afraid of doing LOTS of logging
