traceoptions (Services Redundancy Daemon)


Hierarchy Level


Specify the level of redundancy system events to be traced.


file file-name

Name of the file to receive the output of the tracing operation.

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: 3 files

flag flag

Specify which operations are to be traced. To specify more than one operation, include multiple flag statements.

  • all—Trace everything.

  • config—Trace services redundancy configuration events.

  • connect—Trace services redundancy ipc events.

  • error—Trace services redundancy errors.

  • database—Trace services database events.

  • normal—Trace normal events.

  • opcmd—Trace services redundancy opcmd events.

  • parse—Trace services redundancy parse events.

  • route—Trace services redundancy route events.

  • snmp—Trace services redundancy snmp events.

  • state—Trace services redundancy set state-machine.

  • switchover—Trace switchover events.

  • system—Trace services redundancy system events.


Use the specified level of tracing. You can specify any of the following levels:

  • all—Match all levels.

  • critical—Match critical conditions.

  • error—Match error conditions.

  • info—Match informational messages

  • notice—Match conditions that must be handled specially.

  • verbose—Match verbose messages.

  • warning—Match warning messages.


(Optional) Disable remote tracing.


(Optional) Disable unrestricted file access.

size size

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

  • Syntax: xk to specify KB, xm to specify MB, or xg to specify GB.

  • Range: 10,240 through 1,073,741,824 bytes.

  • Default: 128 KB


(Optional) Enable unrestricted file access.
