Debug Tracing

Debug tracing of the CTAPI has been added to the kernel. You may enable the debug trace with the command CTAPI 1 in the main kernel window. CTAPI 0 will disable the debug tracing. You may also enable the debug tracking by setting the CITECT.INI parameter:


The debug tracing will display each client CTAPI traffic to CitectSCADA. This tracing may slow down the performance of CitectSCADA and the CTAPI client if a large amount of communication is occurring.

The debug trace is displayed in the main CitectSCADA kernel window and is logged to the syslog.dat file.
