Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.Logging
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

public long ReserveDiskSpace { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int64

Long. This is the amount of free disk space necessary. The default value is 10000000.

Exception Condition

When this property is set to a value less than 0.

Use this property to make sure that the log files do not completely fill the disk.

If the amount of free disk space (in bytes) is less than the value of this property, then when the FileLogTraceListener class attempts to write a message to the log, the message is discarded and the failure is either silent or an exception is thrown depending on the value of the DiskSpaceExhaustedBehavior property. Otherwise, the message is written to the log, if the log file size (in bytes) is greater than MaxFileSize.
