Seq log module

Seq is a log management solution that complements logging libraries like Serilog and Application Insights. It provides a centralized platform for storing, searching, and analyzing log data. While Application Insights is a log management and monitoring service offered by Microsoft Azure, Seq can be used as an alternative if you're not using the Azure platform or if you prefer a different log management solution.

Seq allows you to centralize and analyze log data generated by various logging libraries and frameworks. Seq provides a web-based interface for searching, filtering, and visualizing log events, making it easier to monitor and troubleshoot applications.
