Tracer event types to trace

Updated on April 5, 2022

You can trace the progress of various events that occur in the system by selecting event types to trace in the Tracer Settings dialog box. Examples of rules that produce events are flows, declarative rules, and decision trees rules. You can also trace events related to services and database operations.

For declarative rules, rows of the Tracer output show the operation of the declarative network, that is, the forward and backward chaining computations that occur automatically.

Event Type Enter an additional event type as instructed by Pegasystems Global Customer Services and click Add to enable tracing for this type.
ADP LoadTrace the background thread (requestor) that loads a declare page asynchronously.
Adaptive ModelTrace Adaptive Models.
Alert Include Alert log messages produced by your Thread in the Tracer output.
Asynchronous ActivityTrace asynchronous activity.
Auto Populate Properties Trace auto-populated properties.
AutomationTrace automation rules.
CaseTypeTrace case type rule calculations.
DB CacheShow hits and misses for the rule cache and the conclusion cache.
DB QueryShow each SQL query sent to the PegaRULES databases and its results, including expansion of the BLOB column.
Data PagesShow data page activity, including instantiations from properties, calls to data sources, and responses to those calls.
Declare CollectionTrace collection rules.
Declare ConstraintTrace Constraints rules.
Declare DecisionMapTrace map values (start only).
Declare DecisionTableTrace decision tables (start only).
Declare DecisionTreeTrace decision trees (start only).
Declare ExpressionTrace Declare Expression rules.
Declare IndexTrace Declare Index rules.
Declare OnChangeTrace Declare OnChange rules.
Declare TriggerTrace Declare Trigger rules.
FlowTrace a flow. Rows of the Tracer output identify each flow start and end, each flow shape start and end, and the connectors (arrows on the flow diagram).
InteractionStart and end of a user interaction, as defined by the Performance tool.
Linked Page HitTrace operations on linked pages that cause retrieval of the target page from a cache.
Linked Page MissRecord cache misses for linked properties.
LockingTrace locking operations. Tracer output shows each lock acquired and each lock released.
Log MessagesRecord each run of the Log-Message method that has the SendtoTracer parameter selected.
Parse RulesTrace Parse XML, Parse Structure, and Parse Delimited rules. Other parse rule types are not traced.
Predictive ModelTrace predictive model rules.
Query resolutionTrace report queries to identify queries that run against the database instead of Eleasticsearch.
SOAP MessagesTrace detailed SOAP request and response messages for SOAP, SAP, and .NET connectors and services.
ScorecardTrace scorecard rules.
ServicesTrace service rules and service activities.
StrategyTrace strategy rules.
Stream Rules Trace all types of stream rules.
