DotNetNuke module to live monitor log4net logs.
How it works
- Uses a custom log4net appender to send out messages through
- Enables you to pause the incoming messages to more closely inspect them.
- Clicking on a row will save it to a saved log section where it will stay until the page is refreshed or you click to remove it.
- You may change the number of log messages that are displayed at one time.
- You can clear the list of log messages at any time.
- Entries are color coded by their log level.
- Install like any other module and add to a admin page.
- Add custom appender to your
DotNetNuke.log4net.configfound in the root of your DotNetNuke website.
<appender name="SignalrAppender" type="InspectorIT.RealTimeLogWatcher.Components.SignalrAppender, InspectorIT.RealTimeLogWatcher"> <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout"> <conversionPattern value="%date %-5level - %message%newline" /> </layout> </appender> <root> <level value="ALL" /> <appender-ref ref="RollingFile" /> <appender-ref ref="SignalrAppender"/> </root>
Note: If you set your root log level to
ALL you'll want to add the following to your
RollingFile so it doesn't fill up with
<param name="Threshold" value="ERROR" />
- Requires DotNetNuke 7.0.6. Simply because I didn't change the reference to something older. Incentive to be on the latest release.
- Automatically add appender to
- Counting recurring messages.
- Look into security issues.
Thanks to Chris Fulstow and his log4net.SignalR project for giving me the idea.
- Uses AngularJS for the client side UI. Includes the new
ng-animatedirective to animate the log messages in and out of the table.
- Uses SignalR Hubs to pass messages to the client in real time.
