Walk Through Getting Started with ETW TraceEvent NuGet Samples package

In a previous post, I talked about the TraceEvent NuGet Library, which allows you to read and manipulate Event Tracing for Windws (ETW).   There is a companion post about the EventSource  NuGet package which allows you to create your own ETW events (or in fact to send those events to anywhere you choose).    My blog…

Using TraceEvent to mine information in OS registered ETW providers

In previous blocks on TraceEvent I shows you how easy it was to start up ETW sessions to collect information generated by System.Diagnnostics.Tracing.EventSource classes (typically logging that you yourself did).   But I also mentioned in other blogs that the one of the real strengths of ETW was the fact that you get to correlate lots…
