Logging Verbosity

Global-level NCrunch configuration setting Default Value: Summary
ID/Tag in config file: LogVerbosity


This setting controls the verbosity with which NCrunch will report trace information from its core engine.

The default value for this setting, Summary, will only report critical messages (such as compile failures and internal errors). Choosing a more detailed verbosity will inhibit engine performance.

Output from NCrunch's core engine can be found in the output pane of the processing queue or in the NCrunch Diagnostic Output pane when the Log to output window option is enabled.

From NCrunch v4.7, the verbosity of trace information captured from MSBuild is configured separately from this setting using the build log verbosity setting.


Setting a more detailed verbosity than Summary will slow down the NCrunch engine, so ensure you only use this setting if there is specific information you need from the engine.
