Circular Reference with Mongo Appender can Crash Your Process

I’ve blogged some days ago on the possibility to save log4net logs inside a Mongo database, but you should be aware that this technique can be dangerous if your objects have circular references.

Acircular reference happens when object A reference object B and object B directly or indirectly reference object A again and this is a high risk when you work with Mongo Serializer.

Mongo Serializer does not likes circular references (it is perfectly acceptable, because documents with circular references cannot be saved into a document database), but the problem is: if you try to serialize an object that has a circular reference you will get a StackOverflowException and your process will crash, as stated in official documentation from MSDN.

Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0, a StackOverflowException object cannot be caught by a try-catch block and the corresponding process is terminated by default. Consequently, users are advised to write their code to detect and prevent a stack overflow.

If you remember how I modified MongoDb log4net appender, I decided to save into MongoDB complex objects with this code:


if (compositeProperties != null && compositeProperties.Count > 0)
    var properties = new BsonDocument();
    foreach (DictionaryEntry entry in compositeProperties)
        BsonValue value;
        if (!BsonTypeMapper.TryMapToBsonValue(entry.Value, out value))
            properties[entry.Key.ToString()] = entry.Value.ToBsonDocument();
            properties[entry.Key.ToString()] = value;
    toReturn["customproperties"] = properties;
