Calculating timeouts with Event Timeout for Seq

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.Logging v1.2.1 - More logging patterns for your Lurgle convenience

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...

Lurgle.Logging v1.2.0 - Multi-threaded correlation ids are now a thing

Implementing Multi-Threaded Lurgles If we revisit my example from earlier, we'll see a much simpler implementation for multi-threaded code; Log.Level().Add("Here is my log entry"); Log.Level(LurgLevel.Error).Add("Oh no! An error!"); Log.Level().Add("Phew ... moment passed"); Log.Level(correlationId: Logging.NewCorrelationId()).Add("After all that, I'd really like a different correlation id"); Log.Level(LurgLevel.Debug).Add("CorrelationId is {CorrelationId}"); You can see from...

Detecting logins like a boss- the Seq Client for Windows Logins

Speaking broadly - at least for an always-online server - the logon types of interest are 2 (Interactive) and 10 (Remote Interactive). In order to pick these up, we need to get up close and personal with the event log to extract the event log properties. Doing this quickly turned...

Seq.App.EventTimeout v1.4.5 Released

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...

Passing Priority, Responder, and Tags from Seq to OpsGenie!

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...

Lurgle.Alerting v1.1.10 and Lurgle.Logging v1.1.15 Released

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...

Event Timeout for Seq v1.4.2 released

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...
