Subject RE: Log4Net Reports

Hi Dawson, 

I have had pretty good results using Log4Net in this fashion. 

My setup uses 2 appenders with different level settings. 

I have one that logs everything to a log database, and another that only
logs error levels(or higher) by SMTP.

Its worked pretty well for me so far.

Subject: Log4Net Reports

I know the primary purpose of Log4Net is logging capability in your 
application.  However, I'm wondering if it's also used/recommended for 

I've heard talk of people using Log4Net to generate logging information that

they intend to use for creating reports.  Is this a recommended strategy?  
Or should application reporting be kept separate from Log4Net entries?

>From what I understand, it's common for Log4Net to be turned off in a 
production application and only turned on when required to debug a problem.

If this is the typical usage, then clearly reporting based on Log4Net would 
not be recommended.

If you could clear this for me, it would avoid steering several projects in 
the wrong direction.
