Log4Net and DXC Service


Log4Net is great but I am not seeing best practices on where to log when using the DXC service.  Some mention the D:\Home\LogFiles directory while some Azure documentation points to Azure Blob with storage provider configuration.  Does anyome have a best practice to share that can be leveraged in DXC without incurring additional costs?

I did come across this article but it requires a storage setting which means more monthly fees. I was looking for a free option.  Maybe the answer is there isn't a great free solution.  The goal is keeping cost down for the customer while providing helpful logging for developers.  Thanks for responding.

Storage is included in the DXC Service. Where do you store uploaded assets, that requires a storage account as well. What is a free option?
