Nodinite can grab events with payload from both request- and response events and provides correlation Ids which makes it very easy for you to get the whole picture for individual runs. Combine this with other tracked properties in your other workflows and you get true end to end logging across all platforms and solutions.
You will only need 1 Nodinite license still you can log all data and thereby any faults. To get alerts from logged data you also need to use Nodinite Non Events Monitoring Agent
When Nodinite detects a problem with your WCF Enabled applications an alert can be distributed using any of the built-in Alarm plugins to get you or the responsible organization aware and involved.
Nodinite has Role based security and enables you to restrict access down to individual events from the WCF diagnostic tracing feature using Log Views. We at Nodinite think it is wise to limit the number of power users (administrators) from having direct access to servers and services. All operations in Nodinite are being audited.
There is no need to code or change anything within your existing WCF Applications. If you want or need to have better control over what gets logged you can always code and emit Log Events.
Common problems and FAQ for the Nodinite WCF Diagnostic Tracing can be found in the Troubleshooting page.
Nodinite has a smart way to group your Log Events and you know by either looking directly in the Web Client or you can customize and automate this further through the Web API and that data can be used within your Power BI Reports.
