There's a great little introduction to structured logging in ASP.NET Core with Serilog and Seq on Channel 9 today.
A few notes on the show:
- If you're running Seq in ASP.NET Core, you should add
Log.CloseAndFlush()at the end of
Main()to make sure any buffered events are flushed
- The green "tick" marks next to Seq property names let you drill down into a correlation id without typing it manually into the filter bar
Thanks ASP.NET Monsters for the great video!
