WebErrorEvent Class

Provides information about systemic errors.

Namespace:  System.Web.Management
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

type WebErrorEvent =  
        inherit WebBaseErrorEvent

The WebErrorEvent type exposes the following members.

Protected methodWebErrorEvent(String, Object, Int32, Exception)Infrastructure. Initializes the WebErrorEvent class using the supplied parameters.
Protected methodWebErrorEvent(String, Object, Int32, Int32, Exception)Infrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the WebErrorEvent class using the supplied parameters.

Public propertyErrorExceptionGets the Exception associated with the error (Inherited from WebBaseErrorEvent.)
Public propertyEventCodeGets the code value associated with the event. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventDetailCodeGets the event detail code. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventIDGets the identifier associated with the event. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventOccurrenceGets a counter that represents the number of times the event has occurred. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventSequenceGets the number of times the event has been raised by the application. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventSourceGets the object that raises the event. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventTimeGets the time when the event was raised. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyEventTimeUtcGets the time when the event was raised. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyMessageGets the message that describes the event. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public propertyProcessInformationGets information about the ASP.NET application-hosting process. (Inherited from WebManagementEvent.)
Public propertyRequestInformationGets the application request information.
Public propertyThreadInformationGets the application-thread information.

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 methodFormatCustomEventDetailsProvides standard formatting of the event information. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
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 methodIncrementPerfCountersInfrastructure. Used internally to increment performance counters. (Overrides WebBaseErrorEvent.IncrementPerfCounters().)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRaise()Raises an event by notifying any configured provider that the event has occurred. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public methodToString()Formats event information for display purposes. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)
Public methodToString(Boolean, Boolean)Formats event information for display purposes. (Inherited from WebBaseEvent.)

ASP.NET health monitoring allows production and operations staff to manage deployed Web applications. The System.Web.Management namespace contains the health-event types responsible for packaging application health-status data and the provider types responsible for processing this data. It also contains supporting types that help during the management of health events.

The WebErrorEvent provides information about errors caused by problems with configuration or application code. An example is the error issued by ASP.NET when an error is found in a page.


In most cases you will be able to use the ASP.NET health-monitoring types as implemented, and you will control the health-monitoring system by specifying values in the healthMonitoring configuration section. You can also derive from the health-monitoring types to create your own custom events and providers. For an example of deriving from the WebErrorEvent class, see the example provided in this topic.

The following code example shows how to derive from the WebErrorEvent class to create a custom event.

Also shown is an excerpt of the configuration file that enables ASP.NET to use this custom event.
