Example 2: Basic Command

The syntax of the basic command used to start Tracefmt is as follows:

tracefmt EtlFile -p TMFPath -o OutputFile

For example,

tracefmt mytrace.etl -p c:\tracing -o mytrace.txt

This command uses the EtlFile parameter to specify the trace log file, mytrace.etl. It uses the -p parameter to indicate the directory in which the TMF file is stored, and the -o parameter to specify an alternate name for the output file.

In response, Tracefmt formats the trace messages in the mytrace.etl trace log file by using a TMF file in the c:\tracing directory. It creates an output file named mytrace.txt and a summary file named mytrace.txt.sum.
