Add diagnostics to your app with flexible trace

There are many techniques to debug in production - all of these require extensible knowledge of proper tools. There is also a guide on how-to at practices and patterns site. But if the application is designed and built with diagnostics and instrumentation in mind then you can ease production troubleshooting without wasting your time on learning techniques mentioned above. Instrumentation can be as complicated as using Enterprise Instrumentation Framework (EIF), but you can start with simple tracing dynamically turned on and off using web.config file. This video (avail also in hebrew)shows how. Don't forget to checkout on ready to go frameworks like MS Logging application block or Log4Net
