Examples

The following code example demonstrates the use of the CorrelationManager class by identifying the logical operation associated with a traced event. Two logical operations are started, one in the main thread and the other in a worker thread. An error event is logged in both logical operations.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections::Generic;
using namespace System::Text;
using namespace System::Diagnostics;
using namespace System::Threading;

void ThreadProc()
{
    TraceSource^ ts = gcnew TraceSource("MyApp");
    int i = ts->Listeners->Add(gcnew ConsoleTraceListener());
    ts->Listeners[i]->TraceOutputOptions = TraceOptions::LogicalOperationStack;
    ts->Switch = gcnew SourceSwitch("MyAPP", "Verbose");
    // Add another logical operation.
    Trace::CorrelationManager->StartLogicalOperation("WorkerThread");

    ts->TraceEvent(TraceEventType::Error, 1, "Trace an error event.");
    Trace::CorrelationManager->StopLogicalOperation();
}

void main()
{
    TraceSource^ ts = gcnew TraceSource("MyApp");
    int i = ts->Listeners->Add(gcnew ConsoleTraceListener());
    ts->Listeners[i]->TraceOutputOptions = TraceOptions::LogicalOperationStack;
    ts->Switch = gcnew SourceSwitch("MyAPP", "Verbose");
    // Start the logical operation on the Main thread.
    Trace::CorrelationManager->StartLogicalOperation("MainThread");

    ts->TraceEvent(TraceEventType::Error, 1, "Trace an error event.");
    Thread^ t = gcnew Thread(gcnew ThreadStart(ThreadProc));
//   Start the worker thread.
    t->Start();
//  Give the worker thread a chance to execute.
    Thread::Sleep(1000);
    Trace::CorrelationManager->StopLogicalOperation();}



// This sample generates the following output:
//MyApp Error: 1 : Trace an error event.
//    LogicalOperationStack=MainThread
//MyApp Error: 1 : Trace an error event.
//    LogicalOperationStack=WorkerThread, MainThread

Remarks

Traces generated from a single logical operation can be tagged with an operation-unique identity, in order to distinguish them from traces from a different logical operation. For example, it may be useful to group correlated traces by ASP.NET request. The CorrelationManager class provides methods used to store a logical operation identity in a thread-bound context and automatically tag each trace event generated by the thread with the stored identity.

Logical operations can also be nested. The LogicalOperationStack property exposes the stack of nested logical operation identities. Each call to the StartLogicalOperation method pushes a new logical operation identity onto the stack. Each call to the StopLogicalOperation method pops a logical operation identity off the stack.

Note

Logical operation identities are objects, allowing the use of a type for a logical operation identity.
