LogExtent Class

Represents a disk extent that contains log data.

Namespace: System.IO.Log
Assembly: System.IO.Log (in system.io.log.dll)

public sealed class LogExtent
public final class LogExtent
public final class LogExtent
Not applicable.

A LogStore instance stores its data in a collection of disk extents, represented by LogExtent instances. A particular LogExtent is associated with exactly one LogStore, and LogExtent objects in the same LogStore are of identical size. Space is added to and removed from a LogStore instance in extent increments.

Although LogExtent objects are represented on disk as files, they should not be moved or deleted as normal files. To delete a LogExtent instance, remove it from the LogExtentCollection that contains it.

This example shows how to use the LogExtent class to add and emulate extents in a log sequence.
