Tracing Settings
1. Both the process scheduler (psprcs.cfg) and application server (psappsrv.cfg) config files allow for permanent tracing settings as well as setting up trace Masks. psprcs.cfg - /appserv/prcs// psappsrv.cfg - /appserv//

2. Trace Masks are setup to limit the amount of tracing allowed when a user wants to trace through the front end package (see all methods
above).

3. LogFence allows for lower and higher detail tracing with regards to application server standard logging. This is ideal for identifying problems on the application server.

    For SQR tracing, adding "-S" also would show the sql cursors in the log file.
