Loupe: The Best Analysis Tool for NLog
Say Goodbye to Analyzing Logs One At A Time In Notepad
NLog is a popular free logging framework for .NET that makes it easy to produce
high-quality application logs. But analyzing those logs in text editors like Notepad
is tedious at best. At worst, the logs are too big to load or are hopelessly lost
somewhere on a customer's computer unavailable to you.
Loupe integrates with NLog making it easy
to collect, manage and analyze log data. Loupe is an end-to-end solution that
gets logs from end-users to each member of the development team. And it provides
tools to see patterns across thousands of logs or drill into the details of a single
session to pinpoint the root cause of a problem.
End-to-End Log Management
- Loupe ensures that log files will never fill up the disk where you applications
- Logs can be transmitted on demand or automatically via SMTP or the Loupe Server
- Logs are indexed for fast analysis allowing your to see patterns across thousands
Log Viewing and Analysis
- Quickly find crucial information with excellent filter, highlight and grouping capabilities
- Cross reference log entries with graphs of system performance or custom metrics
- Know which class and method issued each log entry even when multiple classes share
a single NLog logger
- See source code associated with log messages
Easy to Integrate and Deploy
- The Loupe Agent is a single DLL which can be freely deployed with your application.
- It stores its log data in a compact format and automatically manages the space used
by purging the oldest sessions as they exceed a configurable age threshold or exceed
a total disk space threshold.
- It includes a live log viewer, exception manager, ASP.NET agent and data transport
system - all free.
- Use the Loupe Configuration Wizard to automatically add the Loupe Agent
to your Application
How it works
NLog is an extensible framework that allows log messages to be filtered and routed
to various targets. We provide a GibraltarTarget that receives NLog messages and
logs them along with all the other data Loupe collects (errors, configuration
data, performance counters, system events, custom metrics). Loupe is added to
your NLog configuration just like any other NLog target.
