Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6.


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

Range: 2 through 1000
Default: 3 files

flag flag—Tracing operation to perform. To specify more than one tracing operation, include multiple flag statements. You can include the following flags:

  • all—Trace all operations
  • application—Trace Diameter application interface events
  • configuration—Trace configuration events
  • daemon—Trace Diameter daemon level events
  • diameter-instance—Trace Diameter instance events
  • dne—Trace Diameter network element events
  • framework—Trace Diameter framework events
  • memory-management—Trace memory management events
  • messages—Trace Diameter messages
  • node—Trace Diameter node events
  • peer—Trace Diameter peer events

  • all—Match all levels.
  • error—Match error conditions.
  • info—Match informational messages.

match regex—(Optional) Refine the output to include lines that contain the regular expression.

no-remote-trace—Disable remote tracing.

no-world-readable—(Optional) Disable unrestricted file access.

size size—(Optional) Maximum size of each trace file, in kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB). If you specify a maximum file size, you also must specify a maximum number of trace files with the files option.

Syntax: xk to specify KB, xm to specify MB, or xg to specify GB
Range: 10 KB through 1 GB
Default: 128 KB

world-readable—(Optional) Enable unrestricted file access.
