location of log files for nap client RRS feed

  • Question

  • the nap help refers to log trace files available for the nap client. i have used napclcfg to enable tracing at the debug level and 'netsh nap show config' confirms this:

    Client tracing:
    ----------------------------------------------------
    State = Enabled
    Level = Verbose

    where do these log files reside? i can't find anything except the usual events in the event viewer.

  • Is this the final Vista release?

    If not, you can find the trace file qagentrt.etl in %windir%\system32

    If yes, the tracing that you enabled will not generate trace files. You will have to use a workaround:

    1. Type:   logman start QAgentRt -p {b0278a28-76f1-4e15-b1df-14b209a12613} 0xFFFFFFFF 9 -o %systemroot%\tracing\nap\QAgentRt.etl -ets

    2.       run through the scenario

    3.  Type: logman stop QAgentRt -ets

    The trace file qagentrt.etl will be generated in %systemroot%\tracing\nap

    Note that these trace files are not human readable, you will need access to private symbol files to decode them.
