Common Desktop Environment: ToolTalk Messaging Overview

Accessing ToolTalk Tracing

A command new for this release, tttrace, is the primary way to access ToolTalk tracing. This command is similar in purpose and command-line interface to the truss command. It enables you to control the three kinds of ToolTalk tracing. The ttrace command has two fundamental modes: server mode and client mode.

Note -

ttrace is not downward compatible with older servers or with clients using older versions of libtt. While ttrace will detect and diagnose older servers, it fails silently on clients using older versions of libtt.
