NLog.Contrib.Targets.WebSocketServer 1.0.0

NLog.Contrib.Targets.WebSocketServer is a NLog target that instead of writing on a file, or showing the log on the console, broadcast the log entries to the connected websocket connections.


- Fully integrated with NLog: it does not require changes in your application code beyond the configuration.

- Self-hosted: it does not need IIS or any hosting framework, WebSocketListener is socket based.

- Mono compatible: Both NLog and WebSocketListener are compatible with Mono.

- Subscribe to Regular Expressions: Is it possible to send a message throug the WebSocket connection to indicate the expression to which you want to subscribe. Only log entries matching that regex will be sent.

- Scalable: NLog and WebSocketListener components are decoupled by a producer-consumer pattern, so NLog will append the log entries to WebSocketServerTarget in O(1) time always, and another thread/threads are responsible of distributing that log entry to the clients. Still, if the component has a big number of connected clients, it may interfere with your application performance. See the MaxConnectedClients configuration setting.
