network trace start

trace start

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The network trace start command starts packet tracing with the given parameters. The best practice is to temporarily disable Snapshots on the root volume while the network trace is running.

Parameters

-node {<nodename>|local} - Node Name
Use this parameter to specify the node on which the packet trace should run.
-port {<netport>|<ifgrp>} - Port
Use this parameter to specify the network interface for packet tracing.
[-address <IP Address>] - IP Address
Use this parameter to optionally specify the address for packet tracing.
[-protocol-port <integer>] - Protocol Port Number
Use this parameter to optionally specify the protocol port number for packet tracing.
[-buffer-size <integer>] - Buffer Size in KB
Use this parameter to optionally specify the buffer size for packet tracing. The default buffer size is 4 KB.
[-file-size <integer>] - Trace File Size in MB
Use this parameter to optionally specify the trace file size for packet tracing. The default trace file size is 1 GB.
[-rolling-traces <integer>] - Number of Rolling Trace Files
Use this parameter to optionally specify the number of rolling trace files for packet tracing. The default number of rolling trace files is 2.

Examples

The following example starts packet tracing on node "node1" with address "10.98.16.164", network port "e0c", buffer size "10 KB", and protocol port number "10000":

cluster1::> network trace start -node node1
    -address 10.98.16.164 -port e0c -buffer-size 10 -protocol-port 10000
    

The following example disables Snapshots on the root volume. Snapshots should be re-enabled after the trace is stopped.

cluster1::> node run -node node1 vol options vol0 nosnap on
