Logging in ASP.net Core 6! We should always add error login in our program and it should be in the better by now.
What do I mean, Logging frameworks and libraries, such as log4net, NLog, elmah, and Serilog, are widely used by developers for debugging code in the .Net ecosystem. These tools are known for their simplicity, ease of use, and effectiveness in capturing log data. However, while these logging tools are valuable, they may not be sufficient on their own and not free.
In this article, I am going to share a free NuGet package which will help you do to the following in the free of cost and package name is RSEasyExceptionHandler.
- 1. Error Logging in ASP.net Core 6 (API or Web Site)
- 2. Auto save error log in the SQlite database
- 3. Send error email notifications to the dev team or TL.

How to read error log
We have developed very user friendly library so that developers can read error log without any hard work.
For read create a API controller and past following code. Now, you can show error log in your front end.
public class ErrorLogController : ControllerBase
private readonly IErrorLogService _errorLogService;
public ErrorLogController(IErrorLogService errorLogService)
_errorLogService = errorLogService;
[HttpGet(Name = "GetErrorLog")]
public async Task<IActionResult> Get([FromQuery] PaginationFilter filter)
return Ok(await _errorLogService.GetListAsync(filter));
Delete log functions
public async Task<IActionResult> DeleteAll(CancellationToken cancellationToken)
return Ok(await _errorLogCommandsService.DeleteAllAsync(cancellationToken));
public async Task<IActionResult> DeleteAll(Guid id, CancellationToken cancellationToken)
return Ok(await _errorLogCommandsService.DeleteByIdAsync(id, cancellationToken));
