File locking question

In my ASP.NET  application I log all the exceptions to a log file.
This can be a issue when multiple requests try to write at the same time to the log file. 
How is this scenario best handled?

You may use the Enterprise Library from Codeplex for your scenario. It has all the patterns implemented to handle the mutithreaded scenario like yours.

Lock code block which has been used to write log to the file using "lock Statement". This statement would not been executed until previous execution has been completed.
