Custom Log4Net appender

Component: Log4Net Logger
NuGet Package NServiceBus.Log4Net (2.x)
Target NServiceBus Version: 6.x

Code walk-through

Illustrates customizing Log4Net by passing in a custom Appender.

Configure Log4Net

var layout = new PatternLayout
{
    ConversionPattern = "%d [%t] %-5p %c [%x] - %m%n"
};
layout.ActivateOptions();
var consoleAppender = new ConsoleAppender
{
    Threshold = Level.Info,
    Layout = layout
};
consoleAppender.ActivateOptions();
BasicConfigurator.Configure(consoleAppender);

Pass that configuration to NServiceBus

LogManager.Use<Log4NetFactory>();

// Then continue with the endpoint configuration
var endpointConfiguration = new EndpointConfiguration("Samples.Logging.Log4NetCustom");

Verifying that the sample works correctly

In this sample the information at the Info level is logged to the console window.

There will be a few standard logging entries in the console window that are automatically created by NServiceBus when logging level is set to Info, for example:

 Queue [private$\error] is running with [Everyone] and [NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON] permissions. Consider setting appropriate permissions, if required by the organization. For more information, consult the documentation.

There will also be a custom entry logged from inside the handler Hello from MyHandler.
