Preview of ReflectInsight.Core

Today we published our first draft of ReflectInsight.Core, a port of our ReflectInsight logging library for .NET Framework to .NET Core and we are making it open source on GitHub. We still have some things to iron out like setting up a CI/CD, NuGet package creation, a sample app, docs and some refinements to the code base.

So far is working in our labs and we will share more information with you soon.

ReflectInsight has been published in a book: Hands-on Machine Learning with C#

An acquittance of mine Matt R. Cole has published a book called Hands-on Machine Learning with C#. If you’re looking to get started with Machine Learning with .NET, then I highly recommend his book.

In addition to being a book about Machine Learning, Matt dedicated a chapter on ReflectInsight titled “ReflectInsight – Real-time Monitoring”.

Announcing ReflectInsight 5.7

Today we’re excited to announce the general availability of our next release of ReflectInsight, version 5.7.9303.15.

ReflectInsight release 5.7 has a few enhancements, bug fixes and we’re introducing a new Personal Edition to ReflectInsight. ReflectInsight Personal Edition is very similar to our popular Standard Edition but is limited to one instance, doesn’t allow Remote Connections and is geared for personal use compared to that of corporations.

Please download the latest version of ReflectInsight now and enjoy! Also checkout our updated Samples, and of course all our libraries can be found on NuGet.

Roadmap 2017

Well this post has been long overdue and I apologize for the lack of activity as we’ve been absent from our blog and twitter feed since late last year and we’d like to change that and make sure we’re bringing you new posts and updates to the community about ReflectInsight, our Extensions and what we have planned for the future.

I’ll start off with a few updates coming out this week for our logging extensions associated with Serilog, NLog and log4net to make sure their supporting the latest dependencies for each of these libraries. We also have some tweaks to our samples to make sure that their consistent across each sample and log to the Viewer, our ReflectInsight binary file and also a text file so that you can easily see how to use each of these destinations. Finally we’ll be announcing a new library on our GitHub repository called Plato.NET, it’s a small yet powerful framework for any .NET app. More details to come on that later this week.

Other Updates for 2017 include:

  • ReflectInsight library improvements, v5.6.2
  • ReflectInsight Viewer improvements, v5.6.2
  • New product edition for ReflectInsight Viewer, v5.7.0
  • Changes to our website – new homepage and support for new product edition plus other changes
  • More documentation and YouTube videos showcasing specific use cases and functionality
  • New logging extension to support features of .NET Core when using the full .NET Framework
  • New sample on how to use the new .NET Core logging extension
  • New extensions to support Azure services
  • Starting work on ReflectInsight v6.0

Your feedback is very important to us, so please tell us want you want to see in future versions of from ReflectInsight, tell us how you’re using ReflectInsight and what problems it solves for you, tell us what causes you pain (hopefully none). All this feedback is appreciated and goes into making ReflectInsight an even better product.

If you have ideas for ReflectInsight and want to help/contribute to the docs, extensions, library or even the viewer, please contact us. We’d love to have you join our team.

Thanks

Configuring your Application to use the TCP Log Router

New in ReflectInsight v5.6.1 is the ability to add Remote Connections to the ReflectInsight Live Viewer. These Remote Connections are connections to the ReflectInsight Router Service. If you’ve read the posts this morning then you know how to install and configure the ReflectInsight Router Service and then add Remote Connections to the ReflectInsight Live Viewer. Now we will walk through how to configure your application to send messages to the ReflectInsight Router Service.

Open up your ReflectInsight.config file (if using satellite configuration files) otherwise go to the app or web configuration file and go to the section named <insightSettings>. You will then need to add a Router section as shown here:

The default port to connect to us 10881. If you changed the port in the ReflectInsight Router Service, you will need to set the same port here.

If the ReflectInsight Router Service is installed on the same machine as your application than you can leave the hostname to “localhost”. If the ReflectInsight Router Service is installed on another machine, you will need to put the computer name or IP.

NOTE: Port 10881 is the port from which your application will communicate to the ReflectInsight Router Service. The ReflectInsight Live Viewer will communicate to the ReflectInsight Router Service on port 10882.

Now that you’ve added the Router reference, you need to reference this named Router from your listener groups destination as shown here:

Enjoy!

Please download the latest version of ReflectInsight now and enjoy! Also checkout our updated Samples, and of course all our libraries can be found on NuGet.
