While the cell is running, rule tracing configuration can be changed by using the
mcontrol CLI. Following are the controls that influence rule tracing:
tracerule on|off—Globally enables (
on) or disables (
off) rule tracing
Phases—Modifies the configuration of which rule phases are enabled for tracing. The
Phases value has the same format as the
TraceRulePhases parameter. For example:
This command disables tracing of all new and abstract rules.
Names—Modifies the configuration of which rules are enabled for tracing. The
Names value has the same format as the
TraceRuleNames parameter. For example:
This command enables tracing of the rule named
problem_rule (assuming that
problem_rule is of a phase that has rule tracing enabled).
Ports—Determines which tracing ports are enabled.
Portsis a string with the same format as the
TraceRulePortsparameter, described on Configuring static rule tracing.
Each time the cell starts, it reverts to the static rule tracing configuration defined in mcell.conf.
