Log important event details about the InsightCM Server system using tracepoints. Use the details of important data events recorded in the log to help you or a technician troubleshoot.A tracepoint is a flag that, when enabled, instructs the server to log messages about when particular events occur. For example, the Storage.MajorOps tracepoint flags events related to file I/O. Review a dynamic list of tracepoints that update as tracepoints become available.
Exceptions work differently depending on whether the tracepoint is enabled or disabled.
Exceptions are useful for storing tracepoint information from a select number of devices instead of all devices.
For example, if you only care about a specific device that is experiencing issues rather than every device in the system, you might disable the Device.SystemEvent.Level1 tracepoint. Additionally, you might create an exception for the one device you are interested in tracking so that the server generates messages for any events that device might have. Exceptions are case-sensitive, so when you add an exception, enter the exact device name.
