Enable Tracing in WCF Service

Hi, many times we need tracing log to see the inner details . We can easily enable tracing by adding the following configuration in the service web.config file.

<configuration>

<system.diagnostics>

<sources>

<source name=”System.ServiceModel”

switchValue=”Information, ActivityTracing”

propagateActivity=”true”>

<listeners>

<add name=”traceListener”

type=”System.Diagnostics.XmlWriterTraceListener”

initializeData= “c:\logs\Traces.svclog” />

</listeners>

</source>

</sources>

</system.diagnostics>

</configuration>

thats it.
