More on Correlation IDs in SharePoint 2010

A while back, I did a post on the new developer dashboard in SharePoint 2010, I’ve also discussed this topic in several presentations on What’s New for Developers in SharePoint 2010, and I’ve talked about the wonderful new feature of correlation IDs that now appear in the developer dashboard, and other error messages, that help with tracking down errors within your logs.
Wictor Wilén made a great post on Working with SharePoint 2010 Correlation ID in PowerShell and code. This article focuses on using the Get-SPLogEvent PowerShell cmdlet to track down logs using that correlation ID, and using it in code. A good read!
