Correlating Activities Across Layers


#1

What is the best approach within the SmartInspect library to express the concept of activity ID (similar to Trace.CorrelationManager)? How does this transfer across layers (similar to TraceTransfer, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa738759.aspx) for easier correlation?

Hello Colin,

Thanks for your posting. It’s not currently possible to use custom fields/attributes with SmartInspect, but you could use SmartInspect’s session concept to track related log messages across different modules/layers. You can learn more about sessions in SmartInspect’s reference help and in the examples we ship with SmartInspect.

I hope this helps.

Thanks,
Dennis
