Updated Event Hubs NuGet Packages

There are new client packages available for Service Bus today with an added focus on Event Hubs

Service Bus .NET Client 2.4.3 https://www.nuget.org/packages/WindowsAzure.ServiceBus/2.4.3

  • EventHub: add API to allow inclusive offset specification at receiver creation.
  • Messaging: improve RetryExponential constructor usability with updated API documentation


Event Hubs EventProcessorHost https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.Azure.ServiceBus.EventProcessorHost/0.3.1

  • Allow user to supply a starting offset for a partition
  • Create pool of messaging factories to increase throughput
  • Fixing default constructor to use default values for EventProcessorHost
  • Allow user to supply a custom offset for Checkpointing in Host.

EventProcessorHost is the easiest way to implement scaled event / telemetry readers for Event Hubs in .NET and is highly recommended. 


Here is a good sample on MSDN: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Service-Bus-Event-Hub-45f43fc3

    Hello, as I have stated in the example for EventProcessHost that shows a scaling out example… there needs to be some documentation on how to correctly implement the ExceptionReceived event.  The example suggess restarting the event processor host in some scenarios, but does not go into detail.  It is important to understand what conditions represented by this event should cause a consumer of the event to take action, such as restarting the host.  Some exceptions seem natural (like balancing of partitions across worker nodes), while others do not, but this is not clearly stated anywhere…
