Some takeaways from the WebVisions NYC 2012 conference by Miao Wang
As part of the SoftFluent product team, I’m proud to officially announce our new product: LogToMail!
LogToMail is a light program (the whole thing is less than 1 MB), which can run as a Windows Service or in command line, and which monitors the event log of a server.
Whenever a new entry is logged, it can send an email with the content of the log entry to the appropriate person.
For instance, the following rule sends an email to user1, user2 and user3, when an error log event other than the 1058 and 1126 is written to the event log:
<rule name="SendToUsers" sendFrom="email@example.com" sendTo="firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org" sendFromDisplayName="LogToMail '#::Environment.MachineName#'"> (Event.EventType == 1) && (Event.EventCode != 1058) && (Event.EventCode != 1126) </rule>
We’ve actually been using this tool internally for years to ensure we don’t miss issues on our servers; it turned out to be so useful that we thought it might help others than us
There’s a free evaluation version (limited to 30 days) which is available here if ever you want to try it out
Hope this helps,
We announced last week the official support of the Microsoft SQL Azure producer, a new CodeFluent Entities producer that generates ready-to-use SQL Azure code from your CodeFluent Entities model. Furthermore, you can also choose to store your Binary Large Objects (BLOBS) in your database or in your Windows Azure Blob Storage account: it’s all up to you!
We successfully passed today the test on the Microsoft Platform Ready website in order to certify the generated SQL Azure code. I am happy to share this nice Powered by Windows Azure logo :
This latest test gives to CodeFluent Entities its 3rd Microsoft Platform Ready certification after Windows 7 and Microsoft SQL Server.
Don’t hesitate to download CodeFluent Entities right now and enjoy Microsoft SQL Azure!
