TraceEventCache Class

Provides trace event data specific to a thread and a process.


Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

type TraceEventCache =  class end

The TraceEventCache type exposes the following members.

Public methodTraceEventCacheInitializes a new instance of the TraceEventCache class.

Public propertyCallstackGets the call stack for the current thread.
Public propertyDateTimeGets the date and time at which the event trace occurred.
Public propertyLogicalOperationStackGets the correlation data, contained in a stack.
Public propertyProcessIdGets the unique identifier of the current process.
Public propertyThreadIdGets a unique identifier for the current managed thread.
Public propertyTimestampGets the current number of ticks in the timer mechanism.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)


The TraceEventCache class, designed as a performance optimization for trace listener calls, is of interest only to developers creating custom trace listeners.

The TraceEventCache class is used as a parameter in tracing methods to accurately identify the source of a trace event. Examples of methods that use TraceEventCache are TraceListener.TraceEvent and TraceFilter.ShouldTrace. The LogicalOperationStack property contains data that can be used to correlate the trace with related traces.
