Saving Traces to File

Using Management & Control Services (MCS), you can save the data from a configured trace to file.

To save trace data to file
  1. View trace data for a trace log file or a currently active trace.

  2. While viewing trace data on the View Traces page, click Save.

    The Save traces dialog box appears.

  3. In the Filename field, enter the name for the trace file you want to create.

  4. For the Type of Save option, select one of the following:
    To save
    A rendered version of the entire trace Export.
    Note Once the file is saved using this option, you can no longer view the trace log file using MCS.
    All of the traces that are currently displayed in the list Save.
    The entire (unrendered) trace, including all correlation IDs Save all.

  5. Click OK to close the Save trace dialog box.

    The trace file is saved, and appears in the Save Traces list on the View Traces (Select File) page.

    Note By default, trace files are saved to the …\mcs\e2e directory.

    For details on any of the options on this property page, click Help in the upper-right corner of the page.
