Dynamic setting of tracing via CLI

Status: Completed

Priority: Medium



This line item concerns the ability to dynamically alter logging levels. Currently, the only way RAS1 logging can be dynamically altered (i.e. without requiring a restart of the component) is via connecting to the HTTP port (default 1920) and logging-in and submitting manual commands to change trace levels. The tacmd CLI should have an option to change the RAS1 trace settings dynamically on other components (TEMS, TEPS, WPA, S&P, Agents, . . .). The CLI should first require a "tacmd login" for authentication, then afterwards allow specifying a managed system name to do the operations on. It should allow manually-entering a specific setting for the RAS1 trace level. It should also have an option for listing the current trace level.
