Debugging

Description

 

Sometimes when an issue occurs while using Remote Desktop Manager, the support personnel may ask you to turn on debugging and send the information back. Here are two procedures that you can follow.

 

Any debug level other then zero will slow down the application and write a lot of information in the application logs. As soon as you have completed the diagnostics you should revert back the debug level to zero.

 

Procedures

 

Use the in-depth debugging method whenever you need to diagnose the startup or initial connection. the Ad-hoc debugging method is much easier to follow and is sufficient in most cases.

 

Ad-hoc debugging

Debug only tab of the profiler window

 

1.Open Help - Profiler, move the window aside to clear the main window of Remote Desktop Manager

2.In the Debug only tab, click on the ellipsis button and activate the proper debug categories.

3.In Remote Desktop Manager, perform the action that is under investigation.  For timing session load times, please press CTRL-F5 to invalidate the cache and perform a full refresh. You should see debug information appear in the profiler window.

4.Click on Send trace to support. In the following dialog, ensure you specify enough information to link the report to the appropriate ticket, if the process was started from the forum include your forum user name.

 

In-depth debugging

1.Open File - Options - Advanced, click on the Debug level ellipsis button and activate the proper debug categories.

2.In the Information section below, you will see a hyperlink to your configuration folder, press on it to have an explorer window opened in that folder.

3.Close Remote Desktop Manager

4.As a preparatory phase, it would be best to clear existing logs to limit the scope of what will need to be analyzed. Delete or rename files named RemoteDesktopManager.log, RemoteDesktopManager.log.db and RemoteDesktopManager.debug from your configuration folder.

5.Start Remote Desktop Manager

6.Perform the action that is under investigation.

7.Open File - Options - Advanced, set the Debug level to zero.
