The parameters in these entries have the following meanings:
Specifies the component, subcomponents, and reporting levels of trace events to
log. For trace events only.
For the component portion, you can specify an asterisk (*) to log trace data for
For the subcomponent portion, you can specify an asterisk (*) to log trace
data for all subcomponents of the specified component.
For the level portion, specify the reporting level to log. This value is a number
between 1 and 9. A level of 1 indicates the least amount of details, and a level
of 9 indicates the greatest amount of details.
Specifies where to log the events. For each destination, you need to specify a
location. When specifying multiple destination-location pairs, separate each pair
with a semicolon (;). The following destinations are valid:
DISCARD Discards the events.
FILE Writes the events as ASCII text in the current code page
and locale to the specified location. When using this
destination, you must specify a location for the file.
Optionally, you can follow the FILE destination by a period
and two numbers that are separated by a period (for
example, FILE.10.100). The first value indicates the
number of files to use. The second value indicates the
number of events each file can contain. If you do not
specify these values, there is only one log file that grows
without limit. The average size of an ASCII event is 200
bytes. Because the maximum size of a log file is 2 GB, the
maximum number of events should be limited to
approximately 10,000,000 events.
STDERR Writes the events as ASCII text in the current code page
and locale to the standard error device.
STDOUT Writes the events as ASCII text in the current code page
and locale to the standard output device.
TEXTFILE Same a FILE.
UTF8FILE It has similar behavior to FILE, but it writes the events as
UTF-8 text to the specified location. The average size of a
UTF-8 event is also 200 bytes. When the operating
system does not use a UTF-8 code page, the conversion
to UTF-8 can result in data loss. When data loss occurs,
