Download Microsoft Enterprise Instrumentation Framework

Brief Description
The Microsoft Enterprise Instrumentation framework (EIF) enables enterprise applications built on the .NET Framework to be instrumented for manageability in a production environment.

Overview

The Microsoft Enterprise Instrumentation framework (EIF) enables applications built on the .NET Framework to be instrumented for manageability in a production environment. This framework provides an extensible event schema and unified API which leverages existing eventing, logging and tracing mechanisms built into Windows, including WMI, the Windows Event Log, and Windows Event Tracing. An application instrumented with this framework can publish a broad spectrum of information such as errors, warnings, audits, diagnostic events, and business-specific events. In addition, Enterprise Instrumentation enables tracing by business-process or application service, and can provide statistics such as average execution time for a given process or service.

Note: This framework was first released in April 2003 to MSDN Universal and Enterprise subscribers. It is now being released publicly as an MSDN download, but will continue to be available via the subscriptions site so that it can be included within MSDN Subscriptions CD distributions.
