Your Technical Support analyst may ask you to perform an event trace. An event trace "captures" all communications activity (except for modem commands), and all keystrokes, commands, and menu and dialog box selections. This data is saved in an event file.
To use the trace data, you will need to process it to create a report of the data or to create a file that "plays" the trace.
To perform an event trace
With a VT session open in the workspace, open the Start Trace dialog box as follows.
In the Start Trace dialog box, enter a path and file name for the event (.rev) file and click . (If you have spoken with a support technician, use your service request number as the name of your trace file.)
Perform the actions required to demonstrate the problem.
After the problem is demonstrated, clickin the group (if using the Ribbon) or on the menu (if using the Browser).
The trace data is saved in the event file.
Upload the trace file as a binary file to http://upload.attachmate.com. If the problem relates to a service request you are currently working on with a technician, include the Micro Focus service request number with the trace and let the technician know when the file is uploaded.
To process trace data
After creating the event file, follow these steps to create a report or a script that "plays" the trace.
With a VT session open in the workspace, open the Process Event Trace dialog box as follows:
Select how to process the trace:
Create a Reflection Basic script that you can use to play the trace.
Create a report in a text-based file format.
Click. The Open Events dialog box appears.
In thebox, select the event file to process, and click .
If you selected, the Save Event Commands dialog box opens.
If you selected, the Save Event Report dialog box opens.
Enter the file name and click.
Scripts are saved as Reflection Basic .rbs files.
Reports are saved in .txt files. The report is automatically displayed after it is saved.
To play trace data
Open the Play Trace dialog box.
In the Play Trace dialog box, select an event trace .rbs file and click .
