Writing trace to Table Storage

This article provides a useful walk through on how to configure the Azure Trace Listener to write to Table Storage.

However, this line is very interesting:

DiagnosticMonitor.Start("DiagnosticsConnectionString");

The diagnostics monitor actually takes no notice of the setting name you pass in (other than to ensure it’s value is a correctly formatted connection string with HTTPS enabled). It will always use this setting:

Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Plugins.Diagnostics.ConnectionString
