Tracer results window
The header row of the tracer results window contains the Pega node hash and computer name. For cluster-wide tracing of service rules, the tracer displays a separate section for each node that reported events.
The tracer records selected events from the rule executions, database operations, and other event types that you selected when you configured the Tracer. Each row represents an event and is color-coded.
- Gray – Activity processing
- Orange – Events from flow, decision, or declarative rules
- Light blue – PegaRULES database and cache operations
The window contains the following columns. The values of some columns change depending on the type of traced event.
|Line||Number of events traced, starting at 1 for the oldest.|
|Thread||The Thread object for the step.|
|Int||The interaction number for the step. This total starts being counted at login and is reset upon logout.|
|Rule#|| Count of distinct activities traced. The count is not reset to zero if you clear all the events. When a single activity is run again later, the previously assigned number is repeated. |
Rules other than activities are not assigned a number.
|Step Method|| For an activity, the method in this step. |
For a declarative rule or decision rule, indicates the start or end of a computation.
For a when condition rule or Boolean expression, identifies the rule name or (a portion of) the expression.
When you trace a database operation , this column lists the specific operation performed on the database. (commit, insert, update)
|Step Page|| Name of the step page, or |
When you trace a database operation , this column lists the database table affected by the database operation in the Step Method column.
|Step||Step number of this step. If two or more rows appear with the same step number, an iteration is in process at that step.|
|Status|| Status of the method in the step, from the pxMethodStatus property, such as |
In this context, a red Fail row indicates an unhandled exception condition. If a method returns a Fail status but the step contains a transition, the Tracer row displays the status as
When you trace a database operation , this column lists the number of bytes involved in a write to the database.
|Watch||Properties for which you have set up a watch variable.|
|Event Type|| Type of event or rule: |
|Elapsed|| For |
|Name|| Full name of the rule being traced, showing all key parts. |
When you trace a database or cache operation , the Name and RuleSet columns are combined. The text in this combined column provides details on the rules being searched for in the cache, or on the size of the database operation.
|Ruleset||Ruleset and version containing the rule being traced.|
