DiskSpaceExhaustedOption Enumeration

Determines what to do when the FileLogTraceListener object attempts to write to a log and there is less free disk space available than specified by the ReserveDiskSpace property.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic.Logging
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in microsoft.visualbasic.dll)

public enum DiskSpaceExhaustedOption
public enum DiskSpaceExhaustedOption
public enum DiskSpaceExhaustedOption
 Member nameDescription
DiscardMessagesDiscard log messages. 
ThrowExceptionThrow an exception. 

When the DiskSpaceExhaustedBehavior property is set to DiscardMessages, the log messages are by default discarded if there is not enough reserved disk space. This prevents simple applications from failing if the disk gets too full.

For a more robust application, set the DiskSpaceExhaustedBehavior property to ThrowException, and add Try...Catch blocks around all code that writes to the log.
