Output File Options

Last Updated: 11/22/2016

In the Output Files tab, you can create text files for a trace session. You can set and change the following options only while creating the trace session. You cannot change these options after the session starts.

Create Listing File
Creates a formatted, readable text file version of the trace messages from a real-time trace session or a trace log.

In the associated text box, type a path and file name for the listing file. The default is LogSessionN.out in the local directory, where N is a zero-based integer that represents the order in which the session is created.

Create Summary File
Generates a text file of statistical information about a real-time trace session or a trace log.

In the associated text box, type a path and file name for the summary file. The default is LogSessionN.sum in the local directory, where N is a zero-based integer that represents the order in which the session is created.

Comments

These options apply only to the trace session that you are creating, even if you include the trace session in a trace session group. Trace sessions in groups do not share their trace session options.

If you specify the path and file name of an existing output or summary file, TraceView overwrites that file without warning.

TraceView creates the summary file when you stop the trace session. If you close the TraceView window before stopping the trace session, TraceView does not create a summary file for the session.
