Extracts the trace buffer from a system dump image.
trcdead [ -oFileName ] DumpImage
The trcdead command extracts the eight active trace channels from a system dump. If the system halts while the trace facilities are active, the contents of the internal trace buffers are captured. If the -o flag is used, the trcdead command extracts the trace event data from the dump and writes it to the specified file. If the flag is not chosen, the command writes to the trace log file.
Use the trcrpt command to format a report from the trace log file.
|-oFileName||Specifies the file to which data is written.|
Note: To determine which example is more appropriate for your system, use the sysdumpdev command to display the current dump device assignments.
