I’ve switched from my own logging framework to nlog. NLog seems quite flexible is under active development and suits my needs perfectly. I’m logging both to the console and to files using the following configuration file:

  <configSections>
    <section name="nlog" type="NLog.Config.ConfigSectionHandler, NLog" />
  </configSections>

  <nlog xmlns=" http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd"   
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" throwExceptions="true" 
    internalLogFile=" Nlog.txt">
    <targets>
      <target name="file" xsi:type="File"
      layout="${longdate} ${threadid:padding=3} ${level:padding=-30} ${logger:padding=-30} ${message} ${exception:format=tostring}"
      fileName="${basedir}/logs/${shortdate}.txt"/>
      <target name="errors" xsi:type="File"
      layout="${longdate} ${threadid:padding=3} ${level:padding=-30} ${logger:padding=-30} ${message} ${exception:format=tostring}"
      fileName="${basedir}/logs/${shortdate}.errors.log" />
      <target name="console" xsi:type="ColoredConsole"
              layout="${date:format=HH\:MM\:ss} ${threadid:padding=3} ${logger:padding=-30} ${message}" />
    </targets>
    <rules>
      <logger name="*" minlevel="Trace" writeTo="file, console" />
      <logger name="*" minLevel="Error" writeTo="errors" />
    </rules>
  </nlog>

The console get’s colored output looking like this:

10:07:41  10 AppDog.Monitor                 Checking AppDog.Monitoring.MonitoredApplication

And file syntax:

2010-07-03 10:22:56.4218  10 Trace           AppDog.Monitor                 Checking AppDog.Monitoring.MonitoredApplication
