  In previous article " Implement Logging in Sql Server Database using Nlog in .net core MVC application - part 3 "  I have demonstrated that how we can implement Logging in sql server database using Nlog in .core mvc application. In previous article I have logged the exceptions in sql server database , in this article I will show you how you can configure archival and purging of log file by modifying the few settings in Nlog.config file. Archival and purging of logs will help us to remove the outdated log files from the server and keep server storage junk free.

In previous article " Implement Logging in CSV file using Nlog in .net core MVC application- part 2 "  I have demonstrated that how we can implement Logging in CSV file using Nlog in .core mvc application. In previous article I have logged the exceptions in CSV file, in this article I will show you how you can store the exception and custom logs in SQL server database using Nlog in .net core MVC application. Storing logs in SQL server database can help us to query the exception data efficiently and we can show it to UI if needed to check exception upfront.      Lets start the implementation of it, I going to use the same example project used in previous article/demonstration. The following nuget package needs to be installed before implement the sql server logging using NLog.   "Microsoft.Data.SqlClient" Version="3.0.1" "NLog" Version="4.7.13"  "NLog.Config" Version="4.7.13" "NLog.Extensions.Logging" Versio

In previous article " Implement Nlog in .Net core MVC application part 1 "  I have demonstrated how we can implement basic setup of NLog in .core mvc application. In previous article we have logged the exceptions in flat file system. In this article I will show you how you can write the exception and custom logs in csv file. Writing logs in csv file can enable us better readability of logs in tabular form.       Lets start the implementation of it, I going to use the same example project used in previous demonstration. Modify the Nlog.config file as follows, added new target and rule for logging logs in csv file. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <nlog xmlns="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd NLog.xsd" autoReload="true" throwExceptions="fal

In this article we will going to use .net core application for demonstration but you can implement it in .net framework application also. So lets start the implementation of Nlog in .net core MVC application. Open visual studio 2019/17 and create the new project as shown below.     Select Asp.net core Web App (Model-View-Controller) and provide the project name in project name text box.   Now on next screen click on create button this will create MVC app with .net core Now go to solution explorer and right click on project and click on Manage Nuget Package.
