tracefmt unknowns events RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m trying to get a text trace in a HPC Server 2008 R2 (it works on HPC Server 2008), this is what I do:

    D:\Trabajo>tracefmt linpack.etl -nosummary -hires -tmf "c:\Program Files\Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 SDK\bin\mpitrace.tmf" -o manual.txt

    Setting log file to: D:\Trabajo\linpack.etl

    Examining c:\Program Files\Microsoft HPC Pack 2008 SDK\bin\mpitrace.tmf for message formats,  17 found.

    Searching for TMF files on path: (null)

    Logfile D:\Trabajo\linpack.etl:

            OS version              6.1.7600  (Currently running on 6.1.7600)

            End Time                2011-03-08-19:37:43.850

            Timezone is             @tzres.dll,-212 (Bias is 480mins)

            Buffers  Written        175

            Logger Mode Settings    (1000002) ( circular paged

            ProcessorCount          2

     Processing completed   Buffers: 175, Events: 1809163, EventsLost: 0 :: Format Errors: 0, Unknowns: 1809163

     Event traces dumped to D:\Trabajo\manual.txt


    And this is what I get:

     D:\Trabajo>more manual.txt

    Unknown(  1): GUID=5b09c0bf-453f-43e6-b344-435148a14443 (No Format Information found).

    Unknown(  1): GUID=5b09c0bf-453f-43e6-b344-435148a14443 (No Format Information found).

    Unknown(  2): GUID=5b09c0bf-453f-43e6-b344-435148a14443 (No Format Information found).


    All the events that I get are Unknown, what I'm doing wrong?

  • Hello,

    I was wondering which version of MSMPI are you using?

    tracefmt is only for WPP tracing. Starting from HPC V3, the msmpi events switched to ETW tracing. So if you are using V3 msmpi, tracefmt won't work as expected.
