messages. It specifies the message based on the type of
resource and the level of verbosity. OPTIONS
Two operations are supported:
enable [ -t type ] [ -l level ] [ -o output ]
The enable operation enables the AMF module to
generate the tracing messages.
-t pron|proff|fson|fsoff|all
Specify the resource type. This option is needed
only if a specified type of resource is traced.
Without this option, all the types will be traced.
pron Process Online
proff Process Offline
fson Filesystem Online
fsoff Filesystem Offline
all All types
-l 1|2|3|4

initialize/de-initialize reaper, and wait/get event
When set to 2, AMF will also trace the arguments passed
between the AMF library and module (such as the resource
When set to 3, AMF’s internal functions and data

When set to 4, the callback routines planted by the
AMF will be traced.
-o console|log
Specify the destination of the message went. Without
this option, the messages are sent to the system message
The disable operation disables the AMF module tracing. EXAMPLE USAGE

# amfdebug enable
The default AMF trace options are:
-t all all resource types
-l 1 verbosity level 1
-o log write message to system message file
Example 2: Enable AMF trace to verbosity level 3
# amfdebug enable -l 3
Example 3: Display the AMF trace to the console with
