Reducing Tracer event output

You can reduce the amount of clipboard detail that is sent to the Tracer by using the Abbreviate Events option. Reducing the amount of output improves the performance of the requestor session that is being traced so that elapsed time statistics during tracing are closer to the normal values, that is, the values when processing is not being traced.

When you abbreviate events, some watch variables might not operate correctly, and the Pages to Trace and Local Variables features are disabled. Do not abbreviate events if debugging requires these features.

  1. On the developer toolbar, click Tracer, or click Actions > Trace on an activity, data transform, or service rule form.
  2. Click Settings.
  3. In the GENERAL OPTIONS section, select Abbreviate Events.
  4. Click OK.
