Remarks

When this is toggled on, the debugger outputs information about the communication between the host computer and the target computer.

This key can be used to test whether the debugger has crashed. If you suspect that either the debugger or the target is frozen, use this key. If you see packets being sent, the target is still working. If you see time-out messages, then the target is not responding. If there are no messages at all, the debugger has crashed.

If the target is not responding, use CTRL+R ENTER CTRL+C. If time-out messages continue to appear, the target has crashed (or the debugger was misconfigured).

This is also useful for debugging the KD debugger itself.
