Microsoft’s new ETB tool enables users to easily view ETL files and live trace sessions while allowing the users to create custom ad-hoc queries. Microsoft SvcPerf can also be used via the command prompt allowing the user to dump raw events or perform custom queries using LINQ over traces. SvcPerf provides support for dynamic filters such as Source, View and Search. The View mode enables you to capture source stream of events in memory and filters can be applied on top of this. The search mode is capable of performing case insensitive search based on events loaded in the grid. You can also use expression filters which are examined in detail on the official user guide. Moreover, ActivityId field or the RelatedActivityId field can be used to filter the logs to the specific activity. Read the full story here.
