  • New APIs for ASP.NET apps;
  • Resizing in Windows Forms controls;
  • New workflow features;
  • Profiling improvements;
  • Debugging improvements;
  • Event tracing changes.

Well, now I will be talking about one of them. It is about “Event tracing”. As you know that Event Tracing for Windows or ETW is an efficient kernel-level tracing facility that lets you log kernel or application-defined events to a log file. It makes you can consume the events in real time or from a log file and use them to debug an application or to determine where performance issues are occurring in the application.

And not only that, ETW has more function again. ETW lets you enable or disable event tracing dynamically, allowing you to perform detailed tracing in a production environment without requiring computer or application restarts. Use ETW when you want to instrument your application, log user or kernel events to a log file, and consume events from a log file or in real time.

In the new ASP.NET 4.5.2 Event Tracing has great change. The new .NET Framework 4.5.2 enables out-of-process, Event Tracing for Windows based activity tracing for a larger surface area. Not only that, this enables Advanced Power Management (APM) vendors to provide lightweight tools that accurately track the costs of individual requests and activities that cross threads. These events are raised only when ETW controllers enable them; therefore, the changes don’t affect previously written ETW code or code that runs with ETW disabled.
