In order to properly diagnose and troubleshoot various issues that may come up on a web site (or web job for that matter), diagnostic logging is a must and one type of diagnostic logging is often not enough. Just because the code is deployed and hosted in the cloud doesn’t mean that you won’t have access to various logs for troubleshooting purposes.
Azure web sites provide access to 5 standard log types:
- Event Logs
- Web server logs
- Detailed err message logs
- Failed request logs
- Application diagnostic logs
In addition, you can roll your own with something like Log4Net and other 3rd party providers for additional functionality.
