Subject Re: Log4Net 1.1.1 Documentation?
Date Wed, 19 Apr 2006 15:16:19 GMT
I used 1.2.0 beta 8 in a highly-critical production environment that must be 
up 24/7 and recently we switched to 1.2.9.   The application software uses 
log4net from both a .NET client application (XP and Windows 2003 Server 
machines), web services (under IIS running on Windows 2003 Server) and 
windows services.   Appenders used are RollingLog, SMTP (even if it is 
missing a config setting or two, grr) and EventLogger.  Plus we have a 
couple of client-side appenders, namely a MessageBox one.  And to add in 
another potential problem/bottleneck/etc. we use custom a 
ILog/LogImpl/LogManager that implements some more logging levels, adds in 
static configuration methods.

So far we have no zero issues associated with log4net.  I'm fairly confident 
we stress log4net quite handily.

Unfortunately that can't be said for some other 3rd party software or server
