    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”.

    Getting Started with the .NET Diagnostic Debug/Trace Insight Extension

    We’ve added support for the System.Diagnostics Debug/Trace functionality. This allows you to leverage your current investment in this, but leverage the power and flexibility that comes with the ReflectInsight viewer. You can view your Debug/Trace messages in real-time, in a rich viewer that allows you to filter out and search for what really matters to you.

    .NET Diagnostic Debug/Trace Configuration

    1. Download and install the ReflectInsight Viewer. You will need this installed to view your messages from the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions.

    Download

    2. Once you have the ReflectInsight Extensions, go to your project in Visual Studio and add a reference to ReflectSoftware.Insight..dll

    3. The next step is to configure your app or web configuration file and incorporate the ReflectInsight appender. If you don’t already have an App.config or Web.config, add it. Then open the configuration file and add a new config section as shown here:

    RI_Extensions_Tracer_Configuration_t

    4. Now you need to add another configuration file to your project for the Insight configuration details. Typically this file is called Insight.config.

    5. Now that you’ve added the Insight configuration file to your project, we’ll need to add an entry to your app/web configuration file to reference it:

    image_thumb5_thumb

    6. Now you need to configure your App/Web configuration with a reference to the System.Diagnostics section. You need to add the following section:

    RI_Extensions_Tracer_Listener_thumb2

    7. That’s it, you’re done!

    8. For an even easier setup and configuration, try using our NuGet package which will automate all of this for you.

    NuGet Package

    We’ve created a NuGet package for our Debug/Trace extension. You can find it over on Nuget.

    To install the ReflectInsight Debug/Trace extension, run the following command in the Package Manager Console.

    Getting Started with the Enterprise Library Insight Extension

    We’ve added support for the Enterprise Library Logging Application block in our extensions. This allows you to leverage your current investment in Enterprise Library Logging, but leverage the power and flexibility that comes with the ReflectInsight Viewer. You can view your Enterprise Library Logging messages in real-time, in a rich viewer that allows you to filter out and search for what really matters to you.

    The Enterprise Library extension supports v5.0.505.1 and above. However if you need to support an older version, then you will need to download the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions Library from CodePlex. You can then reference and rebuild the extension against a specific release of the Enterprise Library Logging DLL.

    Benefits of ReflectInsight Extensions

    The benefits to using the Insight Extensions is that you can easily and quickly add them to your applicable with little effort and then use the ReflectInsight Viewer to view your logging in real-time, allowing you to filter, search, navigate and see the details of your logged messages.

    One of the nice benefits of using the Enterprise Library extension is that if the message you log is XML content, then the extension will automatically transform your message into the SendXML message type which will show up in the XML syntax.

    Enterprise Library Configuration

    1. Download and install the ReflectInsight Viewer. You will need this installed to view your messages from the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions.

    Download

    2. Download the ReflectInsight Extension Binaries or Source and rebuild if necessary.

    3. Once you have the ReflectInsight Extensions, go to your project in Visual Studio and add a reference to ReflectSoftware.Insight.Extensions.EnterpriseLibrary.dll.

    4. The next step is to configure your app or web configuration file and incorporate the ReflectInsight appender. If you don’t already have an App.config or Web.config, add it. Then open the configuration file and add a new config section as shown here:

    sshot-438

    5. Now you need to add another configuration file to your project for the Insight configuration. Typically this is called Insight.config.

    6. Now that you’ve added the Insight configuration file to your project, we’ll need to add an entry to your app/web configuration file to reference it:

    image_thumb5

    7. Now you need to configure your Enterprise Library configuration with an reference to the ReflectInsight Appender. You will want to update your logging configuration section to include a listener for the ReflectInsight Extension, as shown here:

    sshot-439

    8. That’s it, you’re done!

    9. For an even easier setup and configuration, try using our NuGet package which will automate all of this for you.

    Getting Started with the NLog Insight Extension

    We’ve added support for the NLog appender. This allows you to leverage your current investment in NLog, but leverage the power and flexibility that comes with the ReflectInsight viewer. You can view your NLog messages in real-time, in a rich viewer that allows you to filter out and search for what really matters to you.

    The Nlog extension supports v2.0.0.2. However if you need to support an older version, then you will need to download the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions Library from CodePlex. You can then reference and rebuild the extension against your a specific release of the NLog DLL.

    NLog Configuration

    1. Download and install the ReflectInsight Viewer. You will need this installed to view your messages from the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions.

    Introducing the ReflectInsight Logging Extensions

    ReflectSoftware understands that many companies have already invested heavily in development efforts with their existing logging framework. In order to take advantage with just some of the powerful features in ReflectInsight without code change, ReflectSoftware has developed an open-source set of Library Extensions in support of some of the most common logging frameworks available: Enterprise Library, Log4net, NLog, PostSharp, Http Module and the .NET Diagnostic Debug/Tracer.

    These extensions allow you to see your logging messages in real-time, in a rich viewer that allows you to filter out and search for what really matters to you. You’ll never need to look at your log files in a text editor again and you’ll have the full power of our viewer for searching, filtering and navigating your log files.

    The ReflectInsight library also supports your own custom extensions and is flexible enough that anyone can create their own logging extensions.

    For more information about the ReflectInsight Extensions, along with documentation, samples source and binaries, please visit the InsightExtensions CodePlex Site for more information.

    Available Extensions

    .NET Diagnostic Trace/Debug
    HTTP Module
    Enterprise Library Logging Application Block
    Log4net
    NLog

    PostSharp

    Thanks
