My logs were

  • hard to read
  • filling up space(*)

What is this?

It's not possible to configure the log pattern of the built-in HttpClient loggers. To modify, one has to replace them. This package replaces the default loggers with a logger that:

  1. Reduces the number of log statements on httpclient requests from 4 to 1
  2. Logs 1 aggregated log statement: {Method} {Uri} - {StatusCode} {StatusCodeLiteral} in {Time}ms

Change in output


info: Start processing HTTP request GET
info: Sending HTTP request GET
info: Received HTTP response headers after 188.6041ms - 200
info: End processing HTTP request after 188.8026ms - 200


info: GET - 200 OK in 186.4883ms


$ dotnet add package



(*) I'm cheap. My Papertrail account stops logging when reaching a certain szie, so reducing the log helps
