traceoptions (NETCONF and Junos XML Protocol)

 

Syntax

Hierarchy Level

Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.2.

Support for Junos XML protocol sessions added in Junos OS Release 16.1.

Option flag debug introduced in Junos OS Release 16.1.

Description

Define tracing operations for NETCONF and Junos XML protocol sessions.

Note

Starting in Junos OS Release 16.1, when you enable tracing operations at the [edit system services netconf traceoptions] hierarchy, Junos OS enables tracing operations for both NETCONF and Junos XML protocol sessions and adds the [NETCONF] and [JUNOScript] tags to the log file entries to distinguish the type of session. Prior to Junos OS Release 16.1, only NETCONF session data was logged, and the [NETCONF] tag was omitted.

Default

If you do not include this statement, NETCONF and Junos XML protocol-specific tracing operations are not performed.

Options

file filenameName of the file in which to write trace information. All files are placed in the /var/log directory.

Default: /var/log/netconf

files number(Optional) Maximum number of trace files.

When a trace file named trace-file reaches its maximum size, it is renamed and compressed to trace-file.0.gz. When trace-file again reaches its maximum size, trace-file.0.gz is renamed trace-file.1.gz, and trace-file is renamed and compressed to trace-file.0.gz. This renaming scheme continues until the maximum number of trace files is reached. Then the oldest trace file is overwritten.

If you specify a maximum number of files, you also must specify a maximum file size with the size option and a filename.

Range: 2 through 1000 files

Default: 10 files

flag flagTracing operation to perform. To specify more than one tracing operation, include multiple flag statements. You can include the following flags:
  • all—Log all incoming and outgoing data from NETCONF and Junos XML protocol sessions.

  • debug—Log debug level information. Using the flag all option is recommended.

  • incoming—Log all incoming data from NETCONF and Junos XML protocol sessions.

  • outgoing—Log all outgoing data from NETCONF and Junos XML protocol sessions.

match regular-expression(Optional) Refine the output to include only those lines that match the regular expression.
no-remote-trace(Optional) Disable remote tracing.
no-world-readable(Optional) Disable unrestricted file access, which restricts file access to the owner. This is the default.
on-demand(Optional) Enable on-demand tracing, which requires that you start and stop tracing operations from within the NETCONF or Junos XML protocol session. If configured, tracing operations are performed for a session only when requested through the <request-netconf-trace> operation.

Within a session, issue the <request-netconf-trace><start/></request-netconf-trace> RPC to start tracing operations for that session, and issue the <request-netconf-trace><stop/></request-netconf-trace> RPC to stop tracing operations for that session.

size size(Optional) Maximum size of each trace file in bytes, kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB). If you don’t specify a unit, the default is bytes. If you specify a maximum file size, you also must specify a maximum number of trace files with the files option and a filename.

Syntax: size to specify bytes, sizek to specify KB, sizem to specify MB, or sizeg to specify GB

Range: 10240 through 1073741824 bytes

Default: 128 KB

world-readable(Optional) Enable unrestricted file access.
