Logging

PostSharp Logging allows you to add logging to your complete solution in just a few lines of code.

It has the following benefits:

  • Can produce super-detailed logs including parameter values and execution time.

  • Can stay turned off by default and be dynamically enabled on-demand, with fine-grained control over types and namespaces, when a problem happens in production.

  • Super fast. In fact, faster than string.Format.

  • Fully customizable. Works with your logging framework (even your custom one)

  • Supports a broad set of logging frameworks.
