Write communication-specific data to disk.
This corresponds to the communication trace function on the Test property page of the session properties.
Data are written to the file Mon<nn>.trc in the log/trace directory, where nn is a number starting with 00 and being incremented by one. If the file does not yet exist, the file Mon00.trc is created. If the file does exist, the new data are appended to it.
Data are recorded until you issue the
MONITOR command again. Using a key combination, you
can switch this mode on and off.
The default key combination depends on the type of session and the corresponding default key scheme.
|Type of Session / Default Key Scheme||Default Key Combination|
|TN3270 / SAGKEYS1||CTRL+M|
|BS2000 / BS2000KEYS||CTRL+M|
|VTxxx / VT220PC||ALT+M|
During terminal emulation, the character M is shown in column 5 of the status line when data are recorded.
