Enabling the Debug Mode

Home  Previous  Next

When you encounter an issue and wish to report it to Sentry Software, you will be asked to enable the Debug Mode and provide the debug output to the Sentry Software support team. To facilitate the understanding of the debug log content, a separated debug file is created for each monitored system. A generic debug file is also available for reporting on  generic information.

noteThe size of the debug size is unlimited.

To enable the debug mode

1.In the navigation pane of Central Monitoring Administration, click the Policies drawer and select a policy view.
2.Click Edit to display the Add/Edit Policy dialog box.
3.Select the policy that applies to the PATROL Agent for which you need to enable the debug mode, and click Edit.
4.Click the Monitor Configuration tab.
5.Click the Advanced button.

8.Click Close to save your settings.
