Log4net Logs

Log4net is a widely used logging framework in windows .NET applications. The Site24x7 agent automatically detects Log4net logs in your machine and identifies the log fields such as date & time, log level, source file name, line, and message from Log4net. With default support for Log4net logs you can search, view, collect, and analyze the data with the help of our intuitive web client.  Learn more about log management with Site24x7.

Each application writes logs in different folders and files. Log4net logs are sourced from the below-mentioned folder path for the respective Operating System. If you have logs in a different folder, you can mention it under the File Path to source them from that particular folder while creating a log profile.
