Failed Request Tracing Rules Page

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use the Failed Request Tracing Rules feature page to manage a list of tracing rules for failed requests.

Sort the list by clicking one of the feature page column headings or select a value from the Group by drop-down list to group similar items.

UI Element List

The following tables describe the UI elements that are available on the feature page and in the Actions pane.

Feature Page Elements

 

Element Name Description

Path

Displays the URL traced by a tracing rule for failed requests. The URL can contain, at most, one wildcard and must be local to the directory where the failed request definition is set. For example, the wildcard patterns *.aspx, and ind* will all match the URL www.contoso.com/index.aspx.

Associated Providers

Displays the trace providers associated with a tracing rule for failed requests. A provider defines the functional area for tracing. One example is the ASP.NET trace provider, which traces transitions into and out of managed code, including *.aspx requests.

Status Codes

Displays the HTTP status code(s) and substatus code combination(s) traced by a tracing rule for failed requests. There can be multiple status codes in this list, with commas separating each code.

Time Taken

Displays the maximum time, in seconds, that the request should take.

Entry Type

Displays whether the item is local or inherited. Local items are read from the current configuration file, and inherited items are read from a parent configuration file.

Actions Pane Elements

Opens the Edit Failed Request Tracing Rule wizard in which you can edit the selected failed request tracing rule.

Remove

Removes the item that is selected from the list on the feature page.

Edit Site Tracing

Opens the Edit Web Site Failed Request Tracing Settings dialog box in which you enable and configure failed request tracing settings for the Web site. This action is available only when you are connected to a server and you have selected a specific site.

View Trace Logs

Revert to Inherited

Resets the feature to inherit settings from the parent configuration. This deletes local configuration settings, including items from the list, for this feature. This action is not available at the server level.

View Ordered List

Displays the list in order of configuration. When you select the ordered list format, you can only move items up and down in the list. Other actions in the Actions pane do not appear until you select the unordered list format.

Move Up

Moves a selected item up in the list. This action is available only when viewing items in the ordered list format.

noteNote
When items in the list are reordered at a child level, the child will no longer inherit settings from the parent level (including any items that are added to or removed from the list at the parent level) after the list is reordered. If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.

Move Down

Moves a selected item down in the list. This action is available only when viewing items in the ordered list format.

noteNote
When items in the list are reordered at a child level, the child will no longer inherit settings from the parent level (including any items that are added to or removed from the list at the parent level) after the list is reordered. If you want to inherit settings from a parent level, you must revert all of the changes at the child level by using the Revert to Inherited action in the Actions pane.
