XPI Inspector - Only displaying errors not full trace


I've been using the very useful XPI Inspector for a while now, usually to troubleshoot adapters & channels.

I've been used to getting a result with a large record count, containing basically a full trace of Java messages. Following a restart of PI I now get *only* error messages.

Anyone know how to get it to start outputting full logs again?

Have looked in the SAP guide for the tool and other obvious places but without sucess. Eternally grateful for any help.

    Hi Richard,

    As a starting point, I would recommend updating to the latest version of the XPI tool. The version 4.5 is very old and a little unstable. There have been many improvements in the meantime.

    See note 1514898 XPI Inspector for troubleshooting XI, for details.

    • Hi Mark,

      Maybe I read wrongly, but I thought the Version before I did the update was 4.5. But if 4.31 is the latest then all good.

      Thanks for the tip.

    Hi Richard,

    Have you checked the point 2 explains by Michal in his blog Michal's PI tips: XPI inspector - new functions and features (graphical message flow display) about the default trace?

    • Thanks for the answer😊 I tried it out and even the default trace only shows error messages & nothing else.

      So I get the feeling this may be something to do with the logging severity set in the NWA. Unfortunately I'm not a basis guy so I'm not very comfortable in there. I'm going get in touch with my basis team. In the meantime any further suggestions are welcome.
