Trace.UseGlobalLock Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the global lock should be used.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
static member UseGlobalLock : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the global lock is to be used; otherwise, false. The default is true.

The global lock is always used if the trace listener is not thread safe, regardless of the value of UseGlobalLock. The IsThreadSafe property is used to determine if the listener is thread safe. The global lock is not used only if the value of UseGlobalLock is false and the value of IsThreadSafe is true. The default behavior is to use the global lock.

To set the UseGlobalLock for Trace, you can also edit the configuration file that corresponds to the name of your application. The configuration file should be formatted like the following example:

<configuration>
  <system.diagnostics>
    <trace useGlobalLock="false" />
  </system.diagnostics>
</configuration>
