RoleInstanceDiagnosticManager::BeginOnDemandTransfer Method (DataBufferName)
Begins an on-demand transfer of the specified data buffer.
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Diagnostics.dll)
The name of the source buffer.
The DataBufferName enumeration that you want to transfer.method is used to start an on-demand transfer of buffered diagnostic data from the local storage of a role instance to your desired final destination. The input parameter, sourceBufferName, indicates the value of the
Only one transfer of each data buffer can occur at a time. For example, if you call this method using PerformanceCounters to start transferring all performance counter data for a role instance, you cannot call it again until the transfer has completed.
The following code snippet starts an on-demand transfer of performance counter data for the role instance:
// Get the diagnostic monitor for the specified role instance. RoleInstanceDiagnosticManager roleInstanceDiagnosticManager = new RoleInstanceDiagnosticManager(myStorageAccount, "28281fc7754b44faa9ccf4911983edf1", "MyWebRole", "deployment(1).MyAzureProject.WebRole1.0"); // Start a transfer of performance counter logs. roleInstanceDiagnosticManager.BeginOnDemandTransfer(DataBufferName.PerformanceCounters);
