WMBToolkit GUI to remotely read / reset user/ service traces

It could be useful if you could manage and browse user / service traces straight from the Toolkit

    RFE Review. Although this request has been open a long time, and proportionally currently holds a low number of votes, it still remains of future interest to us. We note that our administrative API has evolved significantly in this area - we now have options in the Web UI (which as our main administrative console is where we would more likely implement this kind of feature rather than in Toolkit which has the visual debugger) for resetting, starting and stopping both usertrace and servicetrace. We don't yet have a means of gathering the trace for display, although we have added similar visualisations for administration log messages and activity log messages. So - good progress made as the product continues to evolve in this area, but more that we could do for sure. Status of the RFE currently kept as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thanks for raising this requirement, and agree completely. There are several log and message types (service trace, user trace, system log messages) that are only accessible from the machine on which the broker is located, and it's certainly desirable to be able to access those remotely and using other tools. Indeed, if you look at the more recently developed log types (e.g. V8 activity log) you'll see that these are already accessible through remote and local administration tools - including MB Explorer. We'd like to enable a similar flexibility in the other trace types too.
