Understanding alert message settings in the prconfig.xml file

This article describes three optional settings in the prconfig.xml file that affect how alert messages are generated. You can modify the default values by editing the settings in the prconfig.xml file.

For information about editing these settings, see How to change prconfig.xml file settings.

General alert prconfig.xml settings

Use the following prconfig.xml settings to control overall alert logging behavior:


<env name="alerts/database/includeSQLInTraceList" value="false" />

Adds the executed SQL to the trace list displayed in certain alerts.


<env name="alerts/general/includeparameterpage" value="true" />

Adds the parameter page data to the alerts


<env name=" alerts/general/stackdepth" value="5" />

Sets the depth of the stack to display in the alerts.

If these settings are not included in the prconfig.xml file or Dynamic System Settings, the default behavior is as shown above.

Additional alert prconfig.xml settings

Many alerts have related threshold settings in the prconfig.xml file that define a value that, when exceeded, trigger an alert. For example, number of bytes or rows. You can also toggle some alerts on or off using the enabled setting.
