What is Devtracer?
DevTracer is a fast and effective trace monitor. It can be used with many development platforms for Microsoft Windows, like Microsoft Visual Studio and Visual Basic 6. It can also be used with scripting languages like VBScript (Windows Scripting Host), and with web applications (ASP, ASP.NET).
Some benefits when using DevTracer:
Create and collect trace output for desktop applications, distributed applications, web applications, script ...
Tracing across process boundaries
Monitor tracing across network
Can be used with .NET and COM (Microsoft Component Object Model) compatible applications
Does not decrease the performance of the application
Applications using DevTracer do not depend on DevTracer, i.e. they will still run on machines without DevTracer (or part of it) installed.
Monitor several applications simultaneously. For example: if you develop an ASP.NET application and a Web Service consumed by the ASP.NET application, both can be monitored at the same time.
Who can use DevTracer?
Basically every software developer writing software for Microsoft Windows can use DevTracer. It does not depend on how you develop your software. It can be used with all development tools targeting the Microsoft .NET platform, and with all tools that support COM (Component Object Model).
DevTracer is also a great tool for testers. Whenever they find a bug, they can use DevTracer to create some trace information. This information they can send to the developer along with the bug report, helping the developer to find the cause of the bug.
DevTracer can be used with log4net. When using log4net's ConsoleAppender to rediret trace output to Visual Studio's output window, the
performance is poor. Using DevTracer instead provides a huge performance benefit.
