Hello Guys,

I am evaluating the DataObjects.net library in order to buy it and it looks like the internal logging doesn't work for me. I did as the manual says:

<log name="Storage" events="Warning,Error,FatalError" provider="File" fileName="Storage.log" />

and also tried this one:

<log name="Storage" events="Info,Debug" provider="Debug" /> <!-- prefered way for me -->

but none of those worked. There is no the Storage.log file created. No debug window output. I also tried to put different names like Storage.Providers.Sql. again, no luck. Is there something I am missing?

One Answer:

Hello Dmitry,

Sorry for the nuisance, the manual contains outdated information. Here is the correct version:

    <section name="Xtensive.Diagnostics" type="Xtensive.Diagnostics.Configuration.ConfigurationSection, Xtensive.Core"/>
      <log name="Orm" events="Info,Debug" provider="File" fileName="D:\Temp\orm.log"/>
      <log name="Storage.Providers.Sql" events="Info,Debug" provider="File" fileName="D:\Temp\orm-sql.log"/>

Thanks! This helped partially but there are still 2 issues I can see:

  1. provider="Debug" doesn't log anything to the debug output window.

  2. Neither Storage.Providers.Sql nor Storage is logging linq or entity creation queries. I see only the database build up queries at the application startup time.

there are some issues with Debug provider, it doesn't seem to work. As for LINQ queries, they are not logged at all. If it is important, we could add this functionality later.
