ETW is a powerful and high performance tracing facility. In this post I will describe how to create your own ETW provider and publish events from you application. This post assumes you have a previous understanding of ETW concepts so I won’t cover in detail what ETW is and why to use it. If you’re an ETW newbie, then I invite you to ceck out Ran Wahle and myself at the SDP or to read this MSDN magazine article: Improve Debugging And Performance Tuning With ETW. Before we start I’d like to go over this one point:...
