NServiceBus.Extensions.Logging

NuGet Package: NServiceBus.Extensions.Logging (3.x)
Target Version: NServiceBus 9.x

The NServiceBus.Extensions.Logging package provides support for writing NServiceBus log entries via the Microsoft.Extensions.Logging abstractions. With this common logging abstraction, it is possible to log to different logging providers. Some third-party frameworks can perform semantic logging, also known as structured logging.

Compatibility

Microsoft.Extensions.Logging can be used to replace the following providers:

Supported providers

NServiceBus supports the following logging frameworks via Microsoft.Extensions.Logging:

  • elmah.io
  • Gelf
  • JSNLog
  • KissLog.net
  • Log4Net
  • Loggr
  • NLog
  • Sentry
  • Serilog
  • Stackdriver

For an up-to-date list, see the Microsoft.Extensions.Logging fundamentals documentation, specifically the built-in and third-party providers sections.

Support for ILogger

Microsoft.Extensions.Logging abstractions provide a generic interface that allows a dependency injection-friendly way to use loggers. NServiceBus.Extensions.Logging does not register any resolver for type ILogger<TCategoryName>. Usage of ILogger<TCategoryName> requires the use an external dependency injection container like NServiceBus.Extensions.DependencyInjection that contains registrations for the Microsoft.Extensions.Logging abstractions.

Usage

Configure NServiceBus to use Microsoft.Extensions.Logging

NServiceBus.Logging.LogManager.UseFactory(new ExtensionsLoggerFactory(extensionsLoggingFactory));
