DiagnosticMonitor.LocalDataDirectory Property

Updated: December 6, 2013

Gets the local directory where state information for the diagnostic monitor is stored.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics.dll)

public string LocalDataDirectory { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that indicates the local directory.

The LocalDataDirectory property is used to get the local storage path where diagnostics data is stored. DiagnosticMonitor is a singleton, so this property can only be used on a reference to the current instance.


The following example starts the DiagnosticMonitor and writes the LocalDataDirectory path to a log:

// Start the DiagnosticMonitor and create a reference to the instance.
var diagMonitor = DiagnosticMonitor.Start("Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Plugins.Diagnostics.ConnectionString");

// Write the directory path to the logs.
Trace.WriteLine("Local Directory: " + diagMonitor.LocalDataDirectory);

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
