are there log viewers available that cooperate with the entlib loggin block?

Thanks for hints, links and info.

Not really, how you view the log information would depend on the ultimate destination of the trace listener.  For example, for the Event Log you would usually use the Event Viewer (although you can also write custom applications to read the Event Log).

In terms of reading log file, there is the LogParser which is part of the Enterprise Library Contrib project which could be of use.

Actually I was hoping that there are viewers available like Log4View.
I am aware, that it then would be necessary to use a listener like the xml trace listener.
