KBEA-00034 - Viewing low-level Agent logging on Windows

Summary

DebugView provides a way to see low level EFS trace logging: the low-level filesystem accesses on Windows. Turning this on can drastically slow down a build, but provides fine-grained information as to what it is doing.

Solution

Installing DebugView

Settting Trace level on the agent/EFS

  • telnet to the relevant agent port (i.e. 2419)
  • Run this command on the agent:
    findEfs set traceMask 0x37D5

    (This is the most verbose logging available without eavesdropping on the rest of the system.)

  • Use the already listening DebugView application to view/save the log output.
  • Reset the traceMask back when you have the information you need.

Resettting Trace level on the agent/EFS

  • Run this command on the agent:
    findEfs set traceMask 0 (this is the default)

Querying Trace level on the agent/EFS

  • Run this command on the agent:
    findEfs get traceMask
