Setting the Trace Buffer Size

Using Management & Control Services (MCS), you can specify the maximum buffer size for all configured traces.

To set the maximum trace buffer size
  1. In the MCS selection panel, point to MCS Functions and then click Tracing.

    The Tracing tree appears.

  2. In the Tracing tree, click Manage Tracing.

    The Manage Tracing page appears in the MCS management panel.

  3. In the Trace buffer size (MB) field, enter a new buffer size (from 1-4 MB).

    The trace buffer size specifies how large the buffer can become before it wraps back to the beginning of the buffer, overwriting any previous entries.

  4. Click Save to save the new trace buffer size.

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