WCF design question

I am looking for WCF design opinions.  I have written plenty of Windows services using C++, but I am relatively new to .NET and WCF.  The service will probably only handle a few hundred request a day, not a heavy load.  I would like to know how people with WCF experience monitor recent history.   By recent history, I only care about the last 5 minutes and any active request.  Not an hour ago or yesterday.  I could write log statements to a database or store them in a string array and then create another web site to display activity to an administrator.  Based on your experience is there a more elegant solution? Is there a common pattern or built in support I should be looking at?  Thanks for your input.
