  9. 9. Setting up Cloud Service Logging  Programmatically     During role initialization Enable diagnostics and storage transfer settings Enable windows logs Enable performance counters  WADcfg (preferred)   Used to be XML raw Now VS has user experience 11 © DEVintersection.

  11. 11. Managing Logs  What if you have many sites and cloud services  Aggregate into single table  You’ll need filters    By application By type of log By deployment  Can create filters with management tool  I.e., Cloud Storage Studio 13 © DEVintersection.

  13. 13. Encapsulate Logging  Simplify logging for the developer  Create a DiagnosticsHelper    Methods for Debug, Info, Warning, Exception tracing Methods for throwing exceptions throughout application A method for serious exceptions, send email on exception to admin  Be sure to swallow DiagnosticHelper exceptions  Logging should not introduce new issues, wrap that up!  Can be shared   Web Sites Cloud Services 15 © DEVintersection.
