9.4.  Configure diagnostic tracing.


Diagnostic trace

Diagnostic trace provides detailed information about how the application server components run within a managed process. This trace allows administrators to examine processes in the application server and diagnose various issues.

Tracing can be started while the server is running using Runtime Diagnostic Trace or when the server is started using Configuration Diagnostic Trace. The trace outputs can be directed to either a file or a memory buffer.

Tracing has a significant impact on performance and must only be enabled temporarily for problem determination purposes.

To enable diagnostic traces, use the deployment manager's administrative console, navigating to Troubleshooting > Application servers > server_name > Diagnostic trace service.
