Application Configuration File--Troubleshoot Applications
The .NET Data Provider offers a basic trace facility to assist the application developer in identifying a sequence of data provider method calls that may be called incorrectly by an application program. The developer can create a .NET application configuration file that contains keys for Ingres.trace.
For example, you can create a file called myApplication.exe.config in the same directory as the myApplication.exe executable. The myApplication.exe.config text file contains the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding = "utf-8" ?>
        <add key="Ingres.trace.log" value="C:\temp\Ingres.trace.log" />
        <add key="Ingres.trace.timestamp" value="true" />
        <add key="Ingres.trace.drv" value="2" />
The value= key controls the level of tracing that is produced. Possible key values are as follows:
0 - no tracing (default)
1 - Basic function name detail
2 - Internal connection and messaging detail
3 - Internal state detail
4 - Internal status, length, and count detail
