PreEmptive Analytics for TFS CE offers a free, lightweight way to integrate feedback-driven development processes into your development workflow. Your applications will automatically send back exception report data to your PreEmptive Analytics endpoint service as errors occur during their execution. Your PreEmptive Analytics aggregator service then collects these error reports and automatically creates or updates work items in Microsoft Team Foundation Server based on rules and thresholds you define. These work items will include the exception type, message, full stack trace, the contents of any inner exceptions, and the list of all assemblies loaded at the time of the exception, as well as the number of such exceptions received. With a small amount of additional configuration, you will also be able to see unique instance identifiers (such as the serial number of each application instance that experienced the exception) as well as comments about the error and contact information, if provided by the end user.

This guide will aid you in installing and configuring both the PreEmptive Analytics endpoint and aggregator services. You can host your endpoint services either on a dedicated machine or on your Microsoft Team Foundation server. Your aggregator service will be hosted on your Microsoft Team Foundation server. The user interface for configuring the aggregator service rules and for displaying the detailed exception data for work items created by the aggregator service is built-in to Microsoft Visual Studio 11. A stand-alone interface for configuring the aggregator service rules across all team projects is also installed alongside the aggregator service binaries.
