Microsoft Enterprise Instrumentation Framework Released

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.
