A reference to a tracing service implementation can be obtained from the service provider passed to plug-in’s Execute method.

The ITracingService interface provides a way to log plug-in run-time information. This method of logging information is especially useful for sandboxed plug-ins registered with Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online that cannot otherwise be debugged using a debugger.

The tracing information is displayed in a dialog of the Microsoft Dynamics CRM Web application only if an exception is passed from a plug-in back to the platform.
