    How to enable/disable PDS Debug mode

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 4

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Learn to enable or disable PDS Debug mode

    Procedure:
    ssh access to Primo FE server is required
    1. ssh to server using primo userid
    2. enter the following commands
    pdsroot
    cd program

    3. to enable PDS Debug mode
    ./pds_debug_on

    4. to disable PDS Debug mode
    ./pds_debug_off

    This procedure can be adapted for other Ex Libris application servers where PDS may be running (instead of the Pimo server).

    Additional Information

    * The pds_debug_on and pds_debug_off scripts update the debug flag in the pds/program/PDSDefinitions file.
    * When disabled, only "INFO" and "ERROR" entries appear in /exlibris/primo/p4_1/log/pds_server.log.
    * When enabled, "DEBUG" entries also appear in /exlibris/primo/p4_1/log/pds_server.log.
    * Extreme care should be given prior to enabling PDS Debug Mode on production systems because it will cause the pds_server.log file to grow to excessive size quickly, if left enabled for extended periods.
    * Always disable PDS Debug Mode when finished.
    * see Patron Directory Services Guide, Chapter 12, "PDS Debug Mode" for details.
