EventSchemaTraceListener Constructor (String, String, Int32, TraceLogRetentionOption, Int64)

EventSchemaTraceListener Constructor (String, String, Int32, TraceLogRetentionOption, Int64)


Initializes a new instance of the EventSchemaTraceListener class with the specified name and specified buffer size, using the specified file with the specified log retention policy and maximum size as the recipient of the debugging and tracing output.

Namespace:   System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public EventSchemaTraceListener(
	string fileName,
	string name,
	int bufferSize,
	TraceLogRetentionOption logRetentionOption,
	long maximumFileSize


Type: System.String

The path for the log file.

Type: System.String

The name of the listener.

Type: System.Int32

The size of the output buffer, in bytes.

Type: System.Diagnostics.TraceLogRetentionOption

One of the TraceLogRetentionOption values.

Type: System.Int64

The maximum file size, in bytes.

Exception Condition

maximumFileSize is less than bufferSize.


maximumFileSize is a negative number.

For performance considerations, bufferSize and maximumFileSize should be multiples of 1024 bytes. maximumFileSize is not an absolute value, it is a threshold which can be exceeded up to the size of the last message.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the EventSchemaTraceListener.EventSchemaTraceListener(String, String, Int32, TraceLogRetentionOption, Int64) constructor.

TraceSource ts = new TraceSource("TestSource");
ts.Listeners.Add(new EventSchemaTraceListener("TraceOutput.xml", "eventListener", 65536, TraceLogRetentionOption.LimitedCircularFiles, 20480000));
