Viewing data pages with the Tracer tool

Updated on April 6, 2022

To debug your application, view data pages (by your own requestor session) with the Tracer tool. The Tracer tool displays information about data pages, such as when a load activity starts and details about each reference to a data page.

For example, a weather application displays an error instead of the current temperature. You run the Tracer tool to determine which data page is failing to load the weather data. You can then tune the performance of the data page accordingly.
