    Configuring Traceoptions (NSM Procedure)

    You can configure tracing operations for routing protocols to track all general routing operations and record them in a log file. Any global tracing operations that you configure are inherited by the individual routing protocols. To modify the global tracing operations for an individual protocol, configure the tracing option when configuring that protocol.

    To configure tracing options for routing protocols in NSM:

    1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. In the Devices list, double-click the device to select it.
    3. Click the Configuration tab.
    4. In the configuration tree, expand Routing Options.
    5. Select Traceoptions.
    6. Add or modify the parameters as specified in Table 1.
    7. Click one:
      • OK—To save the changes.
      • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
      • Apply—To apply the routing option settings.

    Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See the Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
