4.3. afsd_service debug logs (fs trace {-on, -off, -dump} ->%WinDir%\TEMP\afsd.log)

When attempting to debug the behavior of the SMB/CIFS Server and the Cache Manager it is often useful to examine a log of the operations being performed. While running the AFS Client Service keeps an in memory log of many of its actions. The default number of actions preserved at any one time is 5000. This can be adjusted with the TraceBufferSize registry value:


REG_DWORD TraceBufferSize

A restart of the service is necessary when adjusting this value. Execute "fs trace -on -reset" to begin the logging and "fs trace -dump" to output the contents of the log to the file.
