Description: Some trace settings like ShowCpuTime=Y might need to be part of your trace but you still do not want to restart the collector for tracing. By using a combination of configuring the trace settings in the ini and using the command line irtrace command, you can accomplish this.
1. Make a copy of the ini file (And keep it in the same location) and configure your trace settings to the copy
i.e. irdllcol.ini to irdllcolt.ini
Note: Be sure to change the logfilename in the copy too
2. Run the command from the Prognosis\Server\Configuration directory:
..\irtrace -s irdllcol -i irdllcolt.ini
Syntax = ..\irtrace -s -i
3. To turn off the tracing just run the shorter command:
..\irtrace -s irdllcol
Everything including wrap settings and output file name are pulled from the custom ini file.
