Logging and Viewing Trace Information
Management & Control Services (MCS) records and maintains trace data for tasks that are performed by MCS-managed products, such as Terminal Viewers. You can create custom trace configurations to help track and troubleshoot problems that occur in those products. Traces can be limited to a particular component, or they can be configured to follow a task across a series of clusters or servers. When you are finished with a particular trace, you can stop or even delete a trace configuration, preventing the tracing service from consuming unnecessary resources and disk space.
The type of information that can be traced for a product is specified by that product. Each product logs its own trace entries locally, and reports that data to MCS only when requested. Using MCS, you can view and save trace data from individual products in one central location. Trace logging is not enabled by default.
