Moves the events from the provider's buffer into the event log.

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

public abstract void Flush()

When this method is called, all the events in the buffer are immediately moved from the buffer to the event log, regardless of how much time has elapsed since last write or how many events are in the buffer. The time of the last write is reset to the time of the flushing action.

The following code example shows how to use the Flush method.

// Flush the input buffer if required.
public override void Flush()
    // Create a string builder to 
    // hold the event information.
    StringBuilder reData = new StringBuilder();

    // Store custom information.
    reData.Append("SampleEventProvider processing." +
    reData.Append("Flush done at: {0}" +
        DateTime.Now.TimeOfDay.ToString() +

    foreach (WebBaseEvent e in msgBuffer)
        // Store event data.

    // Store the information in the specified file.
    StoreToFile(reData, logFilePath, FileMode.Append);

    // Reset the message counter.
    msgCounter = 0;

    // Clear the buffer.
