Creating a trace file

About this task

The name and location of the trace file is defined in the Map Settings window. The default name of the trace file is the executable map name, plus the file name extension .mtr. For example, if your executable map name is MyMap, the trace file is MyMap.mtr. The default location of the trace file is the map execution directory.

Procedure

Because performance can be impacted, enable the trace option only during debugging.

  1. In the Extender Navigator view of the Design Studio, right-click the map, and click Map Settings.
  2. Specify the required map trace settings.
  3. Click OK.

    The next time you run the map, the trace file is created.

Results

If you ran a map and got a message that an input was invalid, turn on the input trace only. If you got a message that an output was invalid, turn on the output trace only. If you trace both input and output, the input messages are at the beginning of the file, followed by the output messages.
