Tracing can use a lot of disk space and can severely impact performance. It should only be used when resolving a problem. The default is no tracing.

Tracing writes special debugging information to text files. This information is useful when troubleshooting the system. When tracing is on, information regarding the Teradata QS operation is saved to files. Depending on where the client software is installed, these files are typically located at c:\schedlog. The administrator or technical support personnel can troubleshoot problems by viewing these files.

Depending on the problem that is trying to be resolved, tracing can be turned on selectively for each of the three Teradata QS components. Tracing can be turned on or off before or after the components are started. This eliminates the need to stop and restart Teradata QS components in order to change the tracing setting.

  1. From the Teradata Query Scheduler Operations window, click Configuration > Tracing.

    The Trace Activity to Files dialog box appears.

  2. Choose from the following options:
    Use this check box… To trace …
    Enable Communications Tracing Communications component activities such as session create, data send/receive, and more.
    Enable Client Tracing Client Teradata QS component activities.
    Enable Server Tracing Server component activities.
  3. Click OK to close the Trace Activity to Files dialog box and return to the Teradata Query Scheduler Operations tool.
