Event Schedule is a bit of a different beast from the Event Timeout and Event Threshold apps. It's an app that will (for example) allow you to automatically create Jira tickets every month via a Seq log entry. This means that it can have difference needs from the other apps...
EventX Trilogy With the work that I've done on my Seq apps (specifically Event Timeout and Event Threshold), I've managed to build quite a robust and versatile date and time system which can be set for some complex scenarios. The properties built into these apps are extensive, with an ability...
"Tell us when events fall below a threshold, between X and Y times..." Seq has an innate ability to alert based on a simple count of events in a signal, using dashboard widgets with alerts. We use that for a number of alerts, including detection of possible upstream outages -...
I've released a minor update to Seq.App.EventTimeout. While creating a new app that shares common functionality (more on that later!), I came across some edge cases for the handling of holidays. These cases should not "usually" have happened, and were only exposed by running a holiday test case near the...
Update After the original post, I tackled another item I'd been meaning to look at - being able to configure proxy settings for the Serilog Seq sink. Lurgle.Logging v1.2.3 now includes additional optional configurations for the Seq sink's proxy. This is particularly useful for console apps like Seq Reporter, to...
Uhh ... You want what? So, you have all your apps logging to Seq, perhaps you have monitoring and alerting using apps like the Seq OpsGenie client, and maybe you're even using Event Timeout to detect events that didn't happen in time. Things are going great, except ... Well, management...
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...
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...
