Parameters > Citect.ini File Parameters > Debug Parameters > [Debug]CategoryFilter


Allows you to filter the logging messages sent to the tracelog.dat file by component category.

The [Debug]CategoryFilterMode parameter indicates whether messages of the specified categories will be included or excluded from the log.

Allowable Values:

Zero or more of the following categories specified as a comma-separated string:

Default Value: Empty string (i.e. no categories excluded)


The following setting will trace tag requests to the point where the data originates:


CategoryFilterMode= CSAToPSI,PSIClient,PSIServer,DataSource

When combined with the implementation of [Debug]DriverTrace, [PubSub]LogDevice and [PubSub]LogLevel, this provides a top to bottom data flow trace.

Note: You can adjust this parameter during runtime using the SetLogging() function. For more information, search the CitectSCADA Help for the topic Adjusting Logging During Runtime. To access the Help, select Citect Help Topics from the Help menu in Citect Explorer or Project Editor.
