CrashDumps Class

Updated: June 6, 2012

Represents application crash dumps.

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

public static class CrashDumps

The CrashDumps class has two methods for enabling collection of crash dump data: EnableCollection and EnableCollectionToDirectory. EnableCollection enables collection of full crash dumps or mini crash dumps to the CrashDumps directory, while EnableCollectionToDirectory enables collection of crash dumps to a specified directory.

You can use CrashDumps with worker roles without additional configuration, but web roles require additional configuration due to robust ASP.NET exception handling.


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