Comparing all the available .NET logging frameworks and selecting one is quite time-consuming. We have evaluated the most popular logging frameworks and compared the important features, available documentation and add-on tools. Please see below for the results of the comparison.
Comparison of .NET Logging Frameworks and Libraries
Please note that the comparison of the different frameworks is a work in progress. If you believe that we missed an important feature or that we got one of the details wrong, please let us know.
1) A project called NLogViewer is mentioned on some websites, but it looks like it's outdated and/or not supported anymore.
When searching for this page, usual search words that are used include NLog vs. log4net, log4net vs. Enterprise Library (also called Logging Application Block). Log4net is also often called log4n (which is actually wrong). Any suggestions? Let us know.
