Additional Information for TDF Presentation
The Remote Debugging Facility, future feature, allows the creation of recorded sessions that can be tested onsite, shipped offsite, executed, and the results shipped back onsite. Used in conjunction with the Dynamic Non-interactive Trace facility, TDF provides a powerful reason to eliminate the effort and overhead of adding proprietary trace code to complex systems. And even systems with traces, often find they encounter problems that are outside of the scope of the trace. Either a required trace point is missing, the required data is missing or some unexpected interaction between tasks has occurred are just some of the things that can go wrong with static traces. Since TDF has the ability to dynamically place traces at any point in the code and to collect the specified data, the programmer can tailor a trace to the problem. This also simplifies the process for the offsite user. They simply run the job and script sent from the offsite developer and ship the resulting file back.
