  1. Can I put the Viewer on my ciient's machine?

    I would like to do real-time log watching on a client's machine, when some intractable bug presents itself. Can I do this? Or would this violate the purchase license?

    I believe I could send the log data to a web service, but this won't help if the problem we're diagnosing involves latency or failure of network connection.

    Thanks,
    -Tom

      Yes, but it depends on which viewer you’re talking about.

      You can freely redistribute the ReflectInsight Log Viewer. We provide a redistributable install on our website in the download section. You need to include the appropriate product key with the install.

      The ReflectInsight Live Viewer is licensed per user. You would typically need to purchase a license specifically for your end users if you wanted to install the Live Viewer on their machines. However it’s best to contact us at clientservices@reflectsoftware.com and provide us details to your usage needs and we can work with you to accommodate.

    • Try license

      Hello,

      I need more time to test ReflectInsight.
      Could you please send me a temporary license.

      Thanks

      • Log Viewer Refresh/Reload

        1. Log Viewer should show an indication that the file has changed and prompt to refresh
        2. there is a Refresh/Reload button so you can reload the file

        • Command line utility for activating and deactivating licenses

          It would be nice to have the capability to activate the Live or Log Viewer applications from our installation script.

          • Home / End Keys Support in the Live Viewer Grid

            Would it be possible in the viewer the home / end key to go to the first and last message?

              • New overload for SetDeveloperConfigurationMode to avoid local configuration file

                I am auto-generating a configuration file in memory via an XDocument and I would like to use it without having to write a temporary file.

                It would be great if SetDeveloperConfigurationMode() could take a Stream or an XDocument in argument.

                • Autoscroll list?

                  Can you make the list autoscrollable so it shows the most recent message on top or bottom en scrolls with it?

                    Hi,

                    Thanks for the feedback. This feature already exists in the Live Viewer for ReflectInsight. You can enable/disable auto scrolling by clicking on the toolbar button on the status bar in the bottom right corner. It is the second button from the right (with no text). Make sure that this is enabled and the viewer will be in auto scroll mode. If you click on a message then this is disabled for the current viewer session. When you want to auto scroll again, just re-enable this state.

                    In our next release, we’ve added text to this status bar button to make it more noticeable.

                    Let us know if you have any other suggestions.

                    Thanks
                    Callon

                  • Ability to cap a log file to a certain size and roll over into a new log file

                    log4net etc has the ability set restrictions on a log file size. When that size is reached a copy is made - preferably with a date stamp - and a new blank file is created.

                    I love the fact that we can log complex objects to log files but that means they get big quickly.

                    • High DPI Mode

                      Windows 8.1 introduces more high DPI scaling. The viewer, however, isn't scaling well under this model and looks tiny on a Retina MacBook Pro running Windows 8.1

                      • Add support for the Common.Logging framework

                        If would be helpful if we can use the Common.Logging interface by Quart.Net and map it to ReflectInsight.

                        • Remote Hook Other Application Messages (Viewer to display log messages fired on another computer)

                          Right now, looks like the viewer can only display messages from the local computer, it would be great to be able to connect to a remote computer to display live messages.
                          Your software would be very useful for DevOps.

                          • Scratchpad improvments

                            For me this is the "killer feature" (with the viewer of course) that made me choose your tech. It's great and I'd like more things around it
                            - The speed is not that great compared to a regular logging, I benched 0.03ms for ViewerSendScratchPad against 0.005 for SendLogInformation
                            - ScratchPad is basically a dictionary right now, you should use the DevExpress tree control to enable a more rich display (hierarchy, columns). I could use the ScratchPad to send some statistics and view them at runtime

                              • Support for ETW Providers

                                Currently there are not a lot of professionally built ETW listeners for live viewing. We get utility-class tools like PerfView. Would be great to see support to natively listen in on ETW events from specific providers. With MS moving towards the EventSource class in the .NET Framework and the recent Semantic Application Logging Block from P&P it seems like a good fit.

                                    • Use separate config file without any dependency to App.config of the host application

                                      When I use app.config, it becomes a maintenance issue. I am only commenting on the dependency where ReflectSight is dependent on host application App.config.
                                      I am a use Ninjatrader platform as hobby for automated trading. I have 2 test boxes and 1 trading box.
                                      here is some of the issues
                                      Ninjatrader refuse to support anything that is not documented. In this case, if yo look at the app.config, this worked for me only when i was able to move the <System.Net> xml fragment below the ConfigSections. God knows what logic they used to read the app.config and they have refused…

                                      • Reduce the number of DLL's distributed with ReflectSoftware.Insight.DLL

                                        When I add a reference to ReflectSoftware.Insight.dll, a lot of other DLL's are included. It would be nice if ReflectInsight could be packaged up as a single DLL.
