Gets the maximum size of the log file.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
The property value is set by the maximumFileSize parameter in the constructor or the maximumFileSize attribute in the configuration file. For performance reasons, you should set the maximum file size to a multiple of 1024 bytes. The property value is not an absolute; it is a threshold that can be exceeded up to the size of the last message.
The following table shows the possible and default values for file size that are associated with each trace log retention option. The values marked as N/A indicate that the property is not checked for that TraceLogRetentionOption value.
The following code example demonstrates how to display the value of the property. This code example is part of a larger example that is provided for the EventSchemaTraceListener class.
