Examples

The following code example shows how to derive from the IWebEventCustomEvaluator interface when creating a custom event.

The following is an excerpt of the configuration file that enables ASP.NET to use the CanFire method to decide whether the raised event must be sent to the provider for processing.

Remarks

ASP.NET health monitoring allows production and operations staff to manage deployed Web applications. The System.Web.Management namespace contains the health-event types responsible for packaging application health-status data and the provider types responsible for processing this data. It also contains supporting types that help during the management of health events.

This interface allows enabling or disabling the firing of a specific event. This is especially useful when you implement your own custom event and want to control the rate at which it is sent to the related provider for processing.

Note

This interface does not control how often the event is raised. It only controls how often the event information is sent to the provider for processing.

Methods

CanFire(WebBaseEvent, RuleFiringRecord)

Evaluates whether an event should be raised.
