Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.5.

Description

Configure local policy decision function (L-PDF) tracing options.

Options

file filename—Name of the file to receive the output of the tracing operation. Enclose the name within quotation marks. All files are placed in the directory /var/log.

files number—(Optional) Maximum number of trace files. When a trace file named trace-file reaches its maximum size, it is renamed trace-file.0, then trace-file.1, and so on, until the maximum number of trace files is reached. Then the oldest trace file is overwritten.

Range: 2 through 1000 files
Default: 2 files

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

flag—Tracing operation to perform. To specify more than one flag, include multiple flag statements.

  • all—Everything
  • configuration—Configuration traces
  • database—Database traces
  • general—Miscellaneous traces
  • gres—Graceful Routing Engine switchover (GRES) traces
  • ptsp-statistics—PTSP statistics traces
  • rtsock—Routing socket traces
  • statistics—Statistics traces
  • subscriber—Subscriber traces

no-remote-trace—Disable remote tracing.

size size—(Optional) Maximum size of each trace file, in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB). When a trace file named trace-file reaches this size, it is renamed trace-file.0. When the trace-file again reaches its maximum size, trace-file.0 is renamed trace-file.1 and trace-file is renamed trace-file.0. This renaming scheme continues until the maximum number of trace files is reached. Then the oldest trace file is overwritten.

Syntax: xk to specify KB, xm to specify MB, or xg to specify GB
Range: 10240 through 1073741824 or the maximum file size supported on your system

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