Are ETW logs supported?

I'm using WF4 and it only seems to write messages out to ETW logging. Does LogFusion read these logs?

I just want to make sure I'm thinking about the same acronyms as you: WF4 is "Windows Workflow Foundation 4" and ETW is "Event Tracing for Windows", correct? What type of logs are you using? Are they the .ETL files, .SVCLOG files, or something else?

Yep, that's it.

I don't know where they are stored, but using the Event Viewer is absolutely terrible for reading ETW events.

See http://xhinker.com/2010/04/17/WF4ConfiguringETWTracking.aspx for more info.

Are you able to post one of your .ETL files for me to test with? I have some rough .ETL file handling support, but I'd like to see how well it works on a real log file.

Hi Jon,

I've sent you an email. Just waiting on a response. The file I have is an export from EventLog using Save All Events As... It seems this is the only way to get logs out of ETW via EventLog. I would assume this is not what you would want as I expect that LogFusion would want to subscribe to the ETW directly rather than looking at exported files (although that should also be supported).

I've emailed you back, and I'm going to close this topic. We'll correspond through email for this, it should be easier.
