What mechanism does MSAF use to send an http request?

Jul 22, 2011 at 3:38 PM

Which .Net class does msaf use to actually send http requests to the analytics servers?

I'm sending requests to googleanalytics but when I step through the code in Reflector

I never actually get to the WebRequest  or WebClient classes.  Watching in Fiddler the

request appears to be sent a little while after I've left the code which Logs an Event.

Is there a background thread running in msaf which actually does the messaging?

If so, why doesn't vs2010 stop at the breakpoint I've set in WebRequest and WebClient?

Do I need to drill down deeper in the stack to catch the message being sent?
