WCF Tracing with config only


Can I use SmartInspect to trace WCF service calls if I only have web.config access?

I am trying to add WCF tracing to an application that I do not have source for. Ideally I would like to identify long running service calls and then be able to view the input and output messages.

I see that smart inspect has a trace listener that I can add to my web.config, however I am a little unsure how that listener interacts with a .sic file to produce a log output that I can view.

Is this something that smart inspect can do?
