- Type: SystemString
The name of the logger to retrieve.
Return ValueType: ILog
The logger with the name specified.
Retrieves a logger named as the name parameter. If the named logger already exists, then the existing instance will be returned. Otherwise, a new instance is created.
By default, loggers do not have a set level but inherit it from the hierarchy. This is one of the central features of log4net.
