Observation shows that approximately 4 percent of code is dedicated to logging. Consequently, even moderately sized applications will have thousands of logging statements embedded within their code. Given their number, it becomes imperative to manage these log statements without the need to modify them manually. The log4net environment is fully configurable programmatically. However, it is far more flexible to configure log4net using configuration files. Currently, configuration files are written in XML.

See the Framework Support document for more information. Loggers and Appenders Log4net has three main components: loggers, appenders and layouts. These three types of components work together to enable developers to log messages according to message type and level, and to control at runtime how these messages are formatted and where they are reported.
These components are helped by filters that control the actions of the appender and object renderers that turn objects into strings. WriteLine resides in its ability to disable certain log statements while allowing others to print unhindered. This capability assumes that the logging space, that is, the space of all possible logging statements, is categorized according to some developer-chosen criteria.
Loggers are named entities. Logger names are case-sensitive and they follow the following hierarchical naming rule: Named Hierarchy A logger is said to be an ancestor of another logger if its name followed by a dot is a prefix of the descendant logger name. A logger is said to be a parent of a child logger if there are no ancestors between itself and the descendant logger. The hierarchy works very much in the same way as the namespace and class hierarchy in.
This is very convenient as we shall soon see. For example, the logger named "Foo. Bar" is a parent of the logger named "Foo. Similarly, "System" is a parent of "System. Text" and an ancestor of "System.
This naming scheme should be familiar to most developers. The root logger resides at the top of the logger hierarchy. It is exceptional in three ways: It always exists It cannot be retrieved by name It always has an assigned level Loggers are retrieved using the static method from the log4net. LogManager class.
The GetLogger methods take the name of the desired logger as a parameter. These GetLogger methods return an ILog interface. That is the representation of the Logger passed back to the developer. Levels are instances of the log4net.
Level class. The following levels are defined in order of increasing priority: ALL.

Log4net for .NET Logging: The Only Tutorial and 14 Tips You Need to Know
There are no set rules on what these levels represent except the first and last. The Configuration The standard way to set up a log4net logger is to utilize either the app. There are a few pieces of information that need to be placed in the config file in order to make it work properly with log4net. These sections will tell log4net how to configure itself. The settings can be changed without re-compiling the application, which is the whole point of a config file. Root You need to have one root section to house your top-level logger references.
log4net - Introduction
When I have been doing some profiling sessions in the past to optimize code, I have noticed that the constructors on the LogManager object can use a lot of CPU. GetLogger System. DeclaringType ; 2. To help resolve these issues, enable internal log4net logging via your web. You are much better off sending your logs to Elasticsearch or a log management service that can provide full-text indexing and more functionality with your logs. They either get ignored over time or something starts throwing a lot of exceptions and then your app starts sending thousands of errors.
