Logging Fileshare Messages: CCI Trace

CCI Trace enables all the messages sent by CCI to be logged to a file. This can help in tracking down and debugging problems related to communications.

CCI Trace is enabled through the Consolidated Tracing Facility (CTF); additionally, to trace CCI activity through the Fileshare Server, add the following to the Fileshare Server configuration file:

/tr cci

To prevent unauthorized access to the CCI Trace information, you are prompted for the supervisor password when you invoke a Fileshare Server with CCI Trace enabled. If the password is accepted, CCI Trace is enabled and a second prompt asks if CCI Trace should be activated immediately or not.

  • The supervisor password is that specified for the user-ID FSVIEW in the password file, so you must specify the appropriate password file when you start the Fileshare Server.
  • CCI Trace can be toggled on and off using the F3 key.
  • The CCI trace options are specified via the CCITRACE environment variable.
