It's been a while since I've added functionality to Lurgle libraries, but I played around with adding AWS Cloudwatch support to Lurgle.Logging. This affords further opportunities to use Lurgle.Logging as a common logging library with all its 'baked in' benefits. To do this, I leveraged the 'official' AWS.Logger.Serilog sink. Puzzlingly,...
I haven't had a lot of time lately to work on the various apps and libraries I've created or contributed to, but a vulnerability in SSH.NET needed attention in Lurgle.Transfer. This vulnerability was noted here, and required an update to dependencies. That's done now, with all other dependencies updated. The...
I've been quiet on the blog front lately, because an unexpected but exciting adventure landed in my lap in late January. I was approached by Amazon for a role, and I freely admit I initially thought the email was spam or phishing! After realising it was very much real, I...
Email+ (aka HTML Email) I have had some pull requests open for a while for Seq.App.EmailPlus, which are quite large in scope and degree of change. This is because they are transformational in nature - adding fallback mailhosts, delivery using DNS resolution, fine-grained TLS control, enhanced logging, and adding a...
Lurgle.Logging until now has supported just the File, Windows Event Log, Seq, and Console log types. It was always the intent to extend this to other log types to support the overall intent of Lurgle - accelerating and enhancing structured logging in your projects by leveraging the excellent work of...
Lurgle.Transfer now supports SMB; Lurgle.Alerting, Lurgle.Dates, Lurgle.Logging, EventX Trilogy, and other apps updated!
Update bonanza! I've recently worked to update dependencies in almost all of my apps, so there are quite a few new versions to check out. Many of these depend on one or more of the Lurgle libraries, so it's logical that when I update the libraries, I also update the...
Standardising transfers I mentioned some time back that I had developed an internal app for critical file transfers. It's quite a useful application that has developed over time to support most of our critical file transfers. The functionality that it uses has been predominantly based around SFTP transfers using SSH.NET,...
I've recently been contributing some code to the Seq Email+ (Seq.App.HtmlEmail) repo to allow for enhanced capabilities, such as delivering email using DNS (by querying the MX record for domains) and using fallback mail hosts, along with adding To/CC/BCC and other options. These additions will, if merged, make for a...
I have had a fair bit of mileage from Seq.Client.EventLog. It's a great little service that was quite reliable for the simple usages that I initially had. When it came to monitoring for user logins, my first port of call was here - I wound up needing to fork the...
I've already written up a couple of posts about using Seq.Input.MSSQL, but I wanted to share one more. If you use termservers (Remote Desktop Session Host) in your environment, integrated with a Remote Desktop Connection Broker, you can do something pretty funky - logging new logins and disconnects to Seq!...
Following on from my last post about using Seq.Input.MSSQL to read Endpoint Protection table entries as Seq logs, I wanted to share something that has really made a huge difference for us - turning the SQL Agent job tables into Seq logs! This was actually the first full MSSQL Input...
While I was investigating a case where Event Schedule for Seq had duplicate multi-log events occurring, I noticed a Daylight Savings Time issue with the unit tests, which was evident due to an upcoming DST changeover here in Australia. It was readily apparent, of course, that with their shared DNA,...
