Developing a Custom Log Provider
Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview
Integration Services has extensive logging capabilities that make it possible to capture events that occur during package execution. Integration Services includes a variety of log providers that enable logs to be created and stored in formats such as XML, text, database, or in the Windows event log. If the log providers and the output formats that are provided do not entirely meet your requirements, you can create a custom log provider.
To create a custom log provider, you have to create a class that inherits from the LogProviderBase base class, apply the DtsLogProviderAttribute attribute to your new class, and override the important methods and properties of the base class, including the ConfigString property and the Log method.
This section describes how to create, configure, and code a custom log provider.
