Lurgle Update Time! I've released an update to Lurgle.Alerting, the premier Lurgle Alerting library for Lurgling your Alerts! This release is about updating some of the older code that was brought into the library: FluentEmail largely suppresses exceptions when there are send failures. Lurgle was simply returning the FluentEmail.Core.Models.SendResponse.Successful bool...
I've released a small update to Lurgle.Alerting which adds automatic determination of the attachment content type using the MimeMapping library. I've raised the version to v1.2.0 to align with Lurgle.Logging's current releases. This specifically addresses an issue when sending attachments with MailKit as the SMTP sender. The FluentEmail implementation was...
Getting from A to B via Z A while back, I had a requirement to migrate users from old Remote Desktop Session Hosts to a new Windows Server 2019 farm. This was a substantial uplift that needed a "break" from their old roaming profiles - especially since it would uplift...
We use quite a number of Event Timeout instances in our Seq environment, to detect processes that have not completed in time. The nature of the Seq.App.EventTimeout implementation is one that relies on a timeout in seconds, and this can result in keeping track of quite a few different calculations....
Lurgle approach compared to Serilog Following on from the v1.2.0 multi-threaded correlation release, I thought about whether we could further improve how we interface with Lurgle.Logging. The general approach was to maintain a static interface to logging that would allow us to capture key properties for logging, that would provide nicely...
Multi-threaded correlation ids were not a thing Following on from my work on Seq.Client.WindowsLogins and the subsequent realisation that EventLog's EntryWritten event handler is bad and should feel bad, I contemplated whether I could apply some of my efforts to solve another issue that had been bugging me. Lurgle.Logging was...
EventLog().EntryWritten is bad and should feel bad - the v1.1.2 update for Seq Client for Windows Logins
Why aren't new logins showing up??? I mentioned in my previous post that the Windows event log can iterate through all log entries and send them to the EventLog().EntryWritten handler repeatedly. I was handling that with an ad-hoc implementation of a 'cache' that aimed to ensure we only examined recent...
The Journey Begins ... This was a journey that began with an existing, and really useful, Seq application. I've had some mileage in the past from the Seq.Client.EventLog service. I've used it to monitor the Windows Application event log for new logs from a specific source, send them to Seq,...
I've released a new update to Event Timeout for Seq, which improves the handling of 24 hour windows (eg. Start 00:00, End 00:00) and how repeat timeouts operate. Ordinarily, Event Timeout is forward looking - it always calculates the next start time if the configured start time would fall in...
Building up the Seq app for OpsGenie Over the past few weeks, I've worked with Nicholas Blumhardt to enhance the Seq.App.OpsGenie application for Seq. Nicholas is the founder and CEO of Datalust, the company behind Seq, and is very active in the community - which is awesome, and has meant that...
I've just pushed out an update to Lurgle.Alerting on Nuget. This release adds a Handlebars template option, based on the implementation by Matthew Turner at FluentEmail.Handlebars (github.com). When I came across the FluentEmail.Handlebars package, I was keen to use it, but it was only compiled against .NET Standard 2.1, and...
A new release of Seq.App.EventTimeout is out. This was a little earlier than I planned to release v1.4.x, but there was a bug in the AbstractAPI deserialization as a result of some code refactoring which I'd missed. As usual, you can install Event Timeout for Seq using Seq.App.EventTimeout as the...
