Work with trace

Trace files show the time and sequence of methods called by WAS base classes, and you can use these files to pinpoint the failure. Collecting a trace is often requested by IBM technical support personnel. If you are not familiar with the internal structure of WAS, the trace output might not be meaningful to you.

  1. Configure an output destination to which trace data is sent.
  2. Enable trace for the appropriate WAS or application components.
  3. Run the application or operation to generate the trace data.
  4. Analyze the trace data or forward it to the appropriate organization for analysis.
