Analytic Tracing with ETW

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) analytic tracing offers a way to capture diagnostic information during the execution of a WCF service. WCF analytic tracing events are emitted at key points in the WCF stack to allow troubleshooting of WCF services in a production environment. Analytic tracing for WCF services has minimal impact on the performance of a product server that hosts .NET Framework version 4 WCF services as these events are very efficiently emitted to an Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) session.
