SvclogViewer

An high-performance alternative for viewing WCF messages with SvcTraceViewer.exe.

Cannot be used for other types of messages besides WCF messages. Note that this only reads the "MessageLogTraceRecord" elements from the logfile. An example configuration can be found below.

Installation

Binaries are available via a ClickOnce deployment on the following URL: http://martijn.tikkie.net/apps/SvclogViewer/SvclogViewer.application
