public sealed class RuleFiringRecord

The RuleFiringRecord class provides information that could be used to determine whether the firing of the event should be recorded.

The following code example shows how the RuleFiringRecord is used when passed to the CanFire method.

// Implements the IWebEventCustomEvaluator.CanFire  
// method. It is called by the ASP.NET if this custom 
// type is configured in the profile 
// element of the healthMonitoring section. 
public bool CanFire(
    System.Web.Management.WebBaseEvent e, 
    RuleFiringRecord rule)

    bool fireEvent;
    string lastFired = rule.LastFired.ToString();
    string timesRaised = rule.TimesRaised.ToString();

    // Fire every other event raised.
    fireEvent =
        (rule.TimesRaised % 2 == 0) ? true : false;

    if (fireEvent)
        firingRecordInfo =
            string.Format("Event last fired: {0}",
            lastFired) +
            string.Format(". Times raised: {0}",
        firingRecordInfo =
           "Event not fired. Times raised: {0}",

    return fireEvent;
