EventSchemaTraceListener.MaximumNumberOfFiles EventSchemaTraceListener.MaximumNumberOfFiles EventSchemaTraceListener.MaximumNumberOfFiles EventSchemaTraceListener.MaximumNumberOfFiles Property

Definition

Gets the maximum number of log files.

public:
 property int MaximumNumberOfFiles { int get(); };
public int MaximumNumberOfFiles { get; }
member this.MaximumNumberOfFiles : int
Public ReadOnly Property MaximumNumberOfFiles As Integer

Property Value

The maximum number of log files, determined by the value of the TraceLogRetentionOption property for the file.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to display the value of the MaximumNumberOfFiles property. This code example is part of a larger example that is provided for the EventSchemaTraceListener class.

Console.WriteLine("MaximumNumberOfFiles =  " + ((EventSchemaTraceListener)ts.Listeners["eventListener"]).MaximumNumberOfFiles);
Console.WriteLine("MaximumNumberOfFiles =  " + CType(ts.Listeners("eventListener"), EventSchemaTraceListener).MaximumNumberOfFiles.ToString())

Remarks

The property value is set by the maximumNumberOfFiles parameter in the constructor or the maximumNumberOfFiles attribute in the configuration file.

The following table shows the possible and default values for file size and file count that are associated with each trace log retention option. The values marked as N/A indicate that the MaximumNumberOfFiles property is not checked for that TraceLogRetentionOption value.

TraceLogRetentionOption Maximum number of files Default number of files
LimitedCircularFiles N/A 1
LimitedSequentialFiles N/A 1
SingleFileBoundedSize N/A -1
SingleFileUnboundedSize >0 1
UnlimitedSequentialFiles >1 2
