LogPolicy Class

Represents the policy associated with a LogStore.

Namespace:  System.IO.Log
Assembly:  System.IO.Log (in System.IO.Log.dll)
public final class LogPolicy

A policy is a set of rules to be followed by a LogStore instance and its clients. A LogPolicy instance is used to examine and modify the policy associated with a specific LogStore. A policy can describe the minimum and maximum allowable log sizes, or how the LogStore instance is allowed to grow. In addition, you can also control whether a LogStore instance can be archived.

After changing any of the properties, you should use the Commit method to ensure that the changes are applied to the LogStore. You can call the Refresh method to discard changes or to get the most current policy.

This example shows how to use the LogPolicy class to set policy for a log record sequence.

// SET LOG POLICY

LogPolicy policy = sequence.LogStore.Policy;

// Set AutoGrow policy. This enables the log to automatically grow 
// when the existing extents are full. New extents are added until 
// we reach the MaximumExtentCount extents. 
// AutoGrow policy is supported only in Windows Vista and not available in R2. 

//policy.AutoGrow = true; 

// Set the Growth Rate in terms of extents. This policy specifies 
// "how much" the log should grow. 
policy.GrowthRate = new PolicyUnit(2, PolicyUnitType.Extents);

// Set the AutoShrink policy. This enables the log to automatically 
// shrink if the available free space exceeds the shrink percentage.  
// AutoGrow/shrink policy is supported only in Windows Vista and not available in R2. 

//policy.AutoShrinkPercentage = new PolicyUnit(30, PolicyUnitType.Percentage); 

// Set the PinnedTailThreshold policy. 
// A tail pinned event is triggered when there is no 
// log space available and log space may be freed by advancing the base. 
// The user must handle the tail pinned event by advancing the base of the log.  
// If the user is not able to move the base of the log, the user should report with exception in 
// the tail pinned handler. 
// PinnedTailThreashold policy dictates the amount of space that the TailPinned event requests  
// for advancing the base of the log. The amount of space can be in percentage or in terms of bytes  
// which is rounded off to the nearest containers in CLFS. The default is 35 percent.


policy.PinnedTailThreshold = new PolicyUnit(10, PolicyUnitType.Percentage);

// Set the maximum extents the log can have.
policy.MaximumExtentCount = 6;

// Set the minimum extents the log can have.
policy.MinimumExtentCount = 2;

// Set the prefix for new containers that are added.  
// when AutoGrow is enabled. 
//policy.NewExtentPrefix = "MyLogPrefix";

// Set the suffix number for new containers that are added. 
// when AutoGrow is enabled. 
policy.NextExtentSuffix = 3;

// Commit the log policy.
policy.Commit();

// Refresh updates the IO.Log policy properties with current log policy  
// set in the log. 
policy.Refresh();

// LOG POLICY END 
//
