Trace (-T or -TRACE)

Use the Trace adapter command (-T or -TRACE) to produce a diagnostics file that contains detailed information about FTP adapter activity.

The default filename is m4ftp.mtr and it is created in the map directory unless otherwise specified.

-T[E][+][S|V] [full_path]
Option
Description
E
Produce a trace file containing only the adapter errors that occurred during map execution.
+
Append trace information to the existing log file.
S
Summary mode. Record only minimal information in the log file. This is the default value.
V
Verbose mode. Record in the log file all activity occurring while the adapter is retrieving data. If not specified, summary mode assumed.
full_path
Create trace file with the specified name in the specified directory. The default directory is the map directory. The default file name is m4ftp.mtr.

You can override the adapter command line trace options dynamically using the Management Console. See "Dynamic Adapter Tracing" in the Launcher documentation for detailed information.

Because summary mode is the default, using -TRACES provides the same output as -TRACE.
