Parameters

Parameters Description

-y Specifies to answer yes to all questions, without prompting.
-f <XML | HTML> Specifies the report file format.

-df <filename> Specifies to create a Microsoft-specific counting/reporting schema file.
-int <filename> Specifies to dump the interpreted event structure to the specified file.
-rts Specifies to add the report raw timestamp in the event trace header. Can only be used with -o. It's not supported with -report or -summary.
-tmf <filename> Specifies which Trace Message Format definition file to use.
-tp <value> Specifies the TMF file search path. Multiple paths may be used, separated by a semicolon (;).
-i <value> Specifies the provider image path. The matching PDB will be located in the Symbol Server. Multiple paths can be used, separated by a semicolon (;).
-pdb <value> Specifies the symbol server path. Multiple paths can be used, separated by a semicolon (;).
-gmt Specifies to convert WPP payload timestamps to Greenwich Mean Time.
-rl <value> Specifies the System Report Level from 1 to 5. Default is 1.
-summary [filename] Specifies to create a summary report text file. The filename, if not specified, is summary.txt.
-o [filename] Specifies to create a text output file. The filename, if not specified, is dumpfile.xml.
-report [filename] Specifies to create a text output report file. The filename, if not specified, is workload.xml.
-lr Specifies to be less restrictive. This uses best efforts for events that don't match the events schema.
-export [filename] Specifies to create an Event Schema export file. The filename, if not specified, is schema.man.
[-l] <value [value […]]> Specifies the Event Trace log file to process.
-rt <session_name [session_name […]]> Specifies the Real-time Event Trace Session data sources.

Examples

To create a report based on the two event logs logfile1.etl and logfile2.etl, and to create the dump file logdump.xml in XML format, type:

tracerpt logfile1.etl logfile2.etl -o logdump.xml -of XML

To create a report based on the event log logfile.etl, to create the dump file logdmp.xml in XML format, to use best efforts to identify events not in the schema, and to produce a summary report file logdump.txt and a report file, logrpt.xml, type:

tracerpt logfile.etl -o logdmp.xml -of XML -lr -summary logdmp.txt -report logrpt.xml

To use the two event logs logfile1.etl and logfile2.etl to produce a dump file, and to report file with the default filenames, type:

tracerpt logfile1.etl logfile2.etl -o -report

To use the event log logfile.etl and the performance log counterfile.blg to produce the report file logrpt.xml and the Microsoft-specific XML schema file schema.xml, type:

tracerpt logfile.etl counterfile.blg -report logrpt.xml -df schema.xml

To read the real-time Event Trace Session NT Kernel Logger and to produce the dump file logfile.csv in CSV format, type:

tracerpt -rt NT Kernel Logger -o logfile.csv -of CSV
