Adapter trace file

The adapter trace file contains detailed information provided by the adapter, including recorded information about the actions that are taking place such as connections established and statements executed. The trace file is produced during the adapter execution and can be used as a debugging aid.

For information about -T, see Archive (Tar) Commands.

If adapter tracing is enabled, but the trace file is not created, any of the following could be indicated:

  • The path to the Archive (Tar) adapter is incorrect
  • The adapter is not located on your path
  • The Trace adapter command name is misspelled
  • The case for the Trace adapter command is incorrect

If the trace file is created, the shared object has been found and is being loaded. If this is true, there might be an invalid adapter command line or a problem with the tar file.
