Enabling tracing for SNMP Event Adapter

This topic provides information to enable tracing for SNMP event adapters.

To enable SNMP trap tracing for all adapters

Update the following settings in the default section of mcxa.conf.

TraceFile              = mcxa.trace

TraceLevel             = 6

TraceSizeMax           = 1000000

TraceSizePeriod        = 10

TraceFileCount         = 10

For more details about these settings, see BMC Event Adapter User Guide.

The trace levels are as follows:

  • 0 – disables all traces
  • 1 – header messages
  • 2 – fatal messages
  • 3 – major errors
  • 4 – minor errors
  • 5 – normal output
  • 6 – verbose output

For debugging purposes, use TraceLevel = 6.

To revert to the defaults, comment these lines out by preceding each line with #

The mcxa.* trace files are created in  installationDirectory/pw/server/tmp/adapters/

Restart the BMC Event Adapter for the logging changes to take effect.

SnmpTraceLevel = 7
SnmpTraceFileCount = 10
SnmpTraceFileSize =  1000000
