What does log4net's internal debug message say:


Have you tried configuring log4net from within the client app's entry point to verify your
log4net.config is correct?

Subject: Problem getting Log4net to work

Can anybody spot what I am doing wrong? I'm probably doing something stupid, but I've been
banging my head against this for a few days and am getting no further:

I have a solution comprising two projects, a client app and a logger project. The logger project
encapsulates calls to log4net. It has a line in its AssemblyInfo file

    [assembly: log4net.Config.XmlConfigurator(ConfigFile = "Log4Net.config", Watch = true)]

and static loggers and methods to call various loggers, eg

       private static readonly ILog bllDebugLog = LogManager.GetLogger("Matrix.Trace"); 

and so on.

a Typical logging method in the logger code is

        public static void Trace(string message)
            using (NDC.Push("TRACE"))

In the same solution I have an application which references the above assembly. The application
makes calls to the static log methods, eg logger.Trace("a message");

and the log4net.config file is in the executable directory of the application (...\bin\debug
and ...\bin\release).

It all seems straight out of the book, but try as I might I cannot get log4net to log anything!

The bare bones of the log4net.config file is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

        <appender name="RollingFileAppenderROOT" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
            <file value="c:\logs\MatrixROOT.log" />
            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
                <conversionPattern value="%m%newline" />
            <appendToFile value="true" />
            <maximumFileSize value="100KB" />
            <maxSizeRollBackups value="2" />

        <appender name="RollingFileAppenderTRACE" type="log4net.Appender.RollingFileAppender">
            <file value="c:\logs\MatrixTRACE.log" />
            <layout type="log4net.Layout.PatternLayout">
                <conversionPattern value="%m%newline" />
            <appendToFile value="true" />
            <maximumFileSize value="100KB" />
            <maxSizeRollBackups value="2" />

            <appender-ref ref="RollingFileAppenderROOT" />

        <logger name="Matrix.Trace">
             <!--this is for routine debug logging to a file--> 
            <level value="DEBUG" />
            <appender-ref ref="RollingFileAppenderTRACE" />
