       dl - setting SGE debug tracing information


       source $SGE_ROOT/util/
       dl level


       The  dl shell script alias is obtained by sourcing one of the scripts $SGE_ROOT/util/
       or $SGE_ROOT/util/dl.csh, for Bourne and C shell respectively.  It provides  a  convenient
       way  to set up the environment to produce certain SGE debugging information.  It is mostly
       useful for maintainers, but may occasionally be useful to users diagnosing problems.   (In
       that  case  it probably indicates a need for extra user-level messages logged in the spool
       area or elsewhere, which should be improved.)

       The level argument specifies the printing of debugging output by  the  SGE  components  as
       described  below,  or  0  to  turn  off  debugging  output and reset the other environment
       variables concerned.  When tracing is on, output goes to the stderr stream.  dl also  sets
       (or,  with argument 0, resets) the SGE_ND environment variable to make daemon programs run
       in the foreground rather than actually daemonizing, and  also  SGE_ENABLE_COREDUMP,  which
       enables  core  dumps  from  daemons  which change user or group.  The trace output is most
       often used for debugging daemons; some is available from client programs but is  typically
       less useful.

   Debugging levels
       Debugging  is  specified  in  terms  of  "layers", describing particular components of the
       system, such as libraries, indexed by a number:

       TOP (0)
              General information;

       CULL (1)
              List-processing (not used consistently);

       BASIS (2)
              Apparently intended for low-level routines, such as  string  processing,  but  used
              quite generally;

       GUI (3)
              Operations in the qmon graphical client;

       GDI (6)
              Grid Engine Database Interface for dealing with "objects" maintained by the qmaster

       PACK (7)
              Packing and unpacking network data.

       The other indices are unused.

       There are also different "classes" which determine the type/amount of information printed,
       again indexed by a number:

       TRACE (1)
              Tracing function enter/exit (generated by DENTER, DEXIT etc. macros);

       INFOPRINT (2)
              General information (generated by DPRINTF);

       TIMING (16)
              Time taken by execd to start a job;

       LOCK (32)
              Locking/mutex information.

       Other  classes  are  defined,  but currently unused.  For those and unused layers, see the
       source file libs/uti/sge_rmon_monitoring_level.h.

       The layers and classes are combined into a number of different "levels" which may be  used
       as the argument of dl to select the output layers and classes, as follows:

       │Level  │  Layer(s)                    │  Class(es)         │
       │0      │  -                           │  turn off all      │
       │1      │  TOP                         │  INFOPRINT         │
       │2      │  TOP                         │  TRACE + INFOPRINT │
       │3      │  TOP + CULL + GDI            │  INFOPRINT         │
       │4      │  TOP + CULL + GDI            │  TRACE + INFOPRINT │
       │5      │  TOP + GUI + GDI             │  INFOPRINT         │
       │6      │  TOP + CULL + BASIS + GDI    │  LOCK              │
       │9      │  TOP + CULL + BASIS          │  INFOPRINT         │
       │10     │  TOP + CULL + BASIS + PACK   │  TRACE + INFOPRINT │
       with other levels unused.  10 is not usually interesting.
