The following code snippet creates a connection and calls the UpdateStorageAccount method:

// Create a connection string.  You can find the account name and key for 
// the storage account in the Windows Azure Management Portal (
string connectionString = "DefaultEndpointsProtocol=https;AccountName=<AccountName>;AccountKey=<AccountKey>";

// Update the DiagnosticMonitor with the new storage account information.


This API is not supported in Azure SDK versions 2.5 and higher. Instead, use the diagnostics.wadcfg XML configuration file. For more information, see Collect Logging Data by Using Azure Diagnostics.
