If you use Azure Diagnostics in your cloud service, and you use the DiagnosticTraceListener then all of your traces are getting output to a table somewhere called WADLogsTable.
I think it’s definitely a nuisance having to use the Visual Studio’s table viewer or some other program to see those logs. So anyway, to save you from purchasing or downloading some viewer app, here is a very bare bones console app you can run to see what you’ve just output to that table. I may get around to improving this later, I may not.
You may want to hardcode your own connection string in, tweak the time to start reading logs from or even feel excited ot make other improvements like paging and optimized partition queries based on reverse engineering Windows Azure Diagnostics partition key… feel free.
