Setting the number of lines to display in Tracer

You can change the number of lines that are displayed in the Tracer window to manage network and workstation load. By default, the Tracer displays the 500 most recent trace lines. You can set a higher value, which requires additional workstation memory. If you only want to view Tracer output as an XML file and save it to your local system, set the number of lines to display to zero (0) to reduce the network and workstation load.

  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 USER INTERFACE section, set Max Trace Events to Display to the number of lines to display. When Tracer output reaches this limit, the oldest lines are dropped from the window to allow newer lines to be displayed.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Restart the Tracer tool for the changes to take effect.
