5.8.1 Enabling ODBC Tracing on Windows

To enable the trace option on Windows:

  1. The Tracing tab of the ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box lets you configure the way ODBC function calls are traced.

    Figure 5.9 ODBC Data Source Administrator Tracing Dialog

    Tracing example includes the "Log File Path" and "Custom Trace DLL" values set, along with buttons to "Start Tracing Now" and "Start Visual Studio Analyzer".

  2. When you activate tracing from the Tracing tab, the Driver Manager logs all ODBC function calls for all subsequently run applications.

  3. ODBC function calls from applications running before tracing is activated are not logged. ODBC function calls are recorded in a log file you specify.

  4. Tracing ceases only after you click Stop Tracing Now. Remember that while tracing is on, the log file continues to increase in size and that tracing affects the performance of all your ODBC applications.
