Tracing for Broker Stubs under IBM i

To request a log file from the Broker stub, the environment variable ETB_STUBLOG must be set. The value of this variable defines how detailed the log will be.

The following table describes the trace values for ETB_STUBLOG:

Trace Level Description
0 NONE No tracing.
1 STANDARD Traces initialization, errors, and all ACI request/reply strings.
2 ADVANCED Used primarily by system engineers, traces everything from level 1 and provides additional information - for example the Broker ACI control block - as well as transport information.
3 SUPPORT This is full tracing through the stub, including detailed traces of control blocks, message information, etc.
