Monitoring the SDK Internal Events

Do you want to know what's happening the inside and do you want to tap into it?

Monitor any internal event regardless of the specific instance of the Logger

  1. Get a reference to the RollbarQueueController.Instance singleton.
  2. Subscribe to its InternalEvent event.
  3. Implement the event handler as you desire. As the result of this subscription, at runtime, all the Rollbar internal events generated while using any instance of the Notifier will be reported into the event handler.

Monitor internal events within any specific instance of the Logger

  1. Get a reference to a specific instance of the Notifier.
  2. Subscribe to its InternalEvent event.
  3. Implement the event handler as you desire. As the result of this subscription, at runtime, all the Rollbar internal events generated while using this specific instance of the Notifier will be reported into the event handler.

    .Error(new Exception("ConsoleApp sample: null reference exception."));
  RollbarLocator.RollbarInstance
