򐂰 SY = Summarization & Pruning
򐂰 UM = Universal Agent
򐂰 HD = Warehouse Proxy Agent
򐂰 NT = Windows OS Agent
򐂰 CNP = TEPS
򐂰 CMS = monitoring server
Note: The tracing changes set here do not take effect until the component is
restarted.

You can access the available service consoles for a given machine by pointing a
Web browser at the following URL:
http://<hostname>:1920
Figure 13-3 shows the link to access the service console.

Figure 13-6 on page 461 is an example of a modified trace setting.
Note: The advantage of setting tracing in this manner is that it takes effect
dynamically.
