My code is below. The Log.Info functions are being called and writing to the log on my CM box. But, nothing is being logged on the CD servers.

Sitecore 8.1 Update 3

XML Code:

<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
    <events timingLevel="custom">
      <event name="publish:end">
        <handler type="Sitecore.Modules.SitemapXML.SitemapHandler, Sitemap.XML" method="RefreshSitemap" />
      <event name="publish:end:remote">
        <handler type="Sitecore.Modules.SitemapXML.SitemapHandler, Sitemap.XML" method="RefreshSitemap" />

C# Code:

using Sitecore.Diagnostics;
using System;

namespace Sitecore.Modules.SitemapXML
    public class SitemapHandler
        public void RefreshSitemap(object sender, EventArgs args)
            Log.Info("SitemapXML Module - RefreshSitemap Function Has Been Started", this);

            SitemapManager sitemapManager = new SitemapManager();

            Log.Info("SitemapXML Module - RefreshSitemap Function Has Finished", this);



<event name="publish:end:remote">
  <handler type="Sitecore.Modules.SitemapXML.SitemapHandler, Sitemap.XML" method="RefreshSitemap" patch:source="SitemapXML.config" />

Update: I am now seeing the logging on each CD server. This issue seemed to be that I have to browse at least one page on the each CD server. Maybe the issue is that the application needs to be started.

  • Have you checked out the scaling configurations? – Michael West Apr 17 '17 at 20:50
  • They should be fine. What do I need to double check? Each CD server has a unique instance name. – ADH Apr 17 '17 at 20:52
  • Have you reviewed this? ScalabilitySettings.config is often overlooked. doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/… – Michael West Apr 17 '17 at 20:53
  • My settings are correct. The problem is more elusive. – ADH Apr 17 '17 at 20:56
  • Nullref is happening in your custom link provider. You should either debug it or disable – Andrey Bobrov Apr 18 '17 at 6:28
