Enterprise Instrumentation Framework Downloadable again
Since my last post about EIF, the download magically disappeared. But now it can be downloaded again from this location. I don't know how long it will stay online this time, so better be fast... :-)
For you who do not know EIF:
The Microsoft Enterprise Instrumentation framework (EIF) enables applications built on the .NET Framework to be instrumented for manageability in a production environment. This framework provides an extensible event schema and unified API which leverages existing eventing, logging and tracing mechanisms built into Windows, including WMI, the Windows Event Log, and Windows Event Tracing. An application instrumented with this framework can publish a broad spectrum of information such as errors, warnings, audits, diagnostic events, and business-specific events. In addition, Enterprise Instrumentation enables tracing by business-process or application service, and can provide statistics such as average execution time for a given process or service.
