public class MinimalLock : FileAppenderLockingModelBase

The FileAppenderMinimalLock type exposes the following members.


Public methodFileAppenderMinimalLock
Initializes a new instance of the FileAppenderMinimalLock class

Public propertyCurrentAppender
Gets or sets the FileAppender for this LockingModel
(Inherited from FileAppenderLockingModelBase.)

Public methodAcquireLock
Acquire the lock on the file
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseAcquireLock.)
Public methodActivateOptions
Initializes all resources used by this locking model.
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseActivateOptions.)
Public methodCloseFile
Close the file
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseCloseFile.)
Protected methodCloseStream
Helper method to close stream under CurrentAppender's SecurityContext.
(Inherited from FileAppenderLockingModelBase.)
Protected methodCreateStream
Helper method that creates a FileStream under CurrentAppender's SecurityContext.
(Inherited from FileAppenderLockingModelBase.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an Object to attempt to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodOnClose
Disposes all resources that were initialized by this locking model.
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseOnClose.)
Public methodOpenFile
Prepares to open the file when the first message is logged.
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseOpenFile(String, Boolean, Encoding).)
Public methodReleaseLock
Release the lock on the file
(Overrides FileAppenderLockingModelBaseReleaseLock.)
Public methodToString
Returns a String that represents the current Object.

Opens the file once for each AcquireLock/ReleaseLock cycle, thus holding the lock for the minimal amount of time. This method of locking is considerably slower than FileAppenderExclusiveLock but allows other processes to move/delete the log file whilst logging continues.
