CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Issue/Introduction

I am trying to find out who has activated traces in the past 6 months.
Is there a way to find this information from the Netmaster product? 

Environment

Release : 12.2

Component : CA NetMaster Network Management for TCP/IP

Resolution

NetMaster writes messages to the activity log that include the userid every time a SmartTrace is activated or inactivated, and every time a definition is created or updated.

The message prefix is always IPPT0200.

So if an ad-hoc smarttrace is run from a connection list, the log will show

IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition for TCPIP: remote.ip..port <-> local.ip..port added by USERID1 (>CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19) 
IPPT0222 SmartTrace >CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19 Type=PTC Stack=TCPIP  RAddr=ip.address RPort=port LAddr=ip.address Lport=port   
IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition for TCPIP: remote.ip..port <-> local.ip..port activated by USERID1 (>CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19) 
IPPT0222 SmartTrace >CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19 Type=PTC Stack=TCPIP  RAddr=ip.address RPort=port LAddr=ip.address Lport=port       
IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition for TCPIP: remote.ip..port <-> local.ip..port inactivated by USERID1 (>CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19) 

Please note that, while you may see  the entire message in one line in your activity log in Netmaster under /LOG,  the message will likely be split into two lines in your STC output, like so

IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition for TCPIP: remote.ip..port <-> local.ip..port a
dded by USERID1 (>CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19)
IPPT0222 SmartTrace >CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19 Type=PTC Stack=TCPIP  RAddr=ip.address
RPort=port LAddr=ip.address Lport=port     
IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition for TCPIP: 10.230.149.227..56147 <-> 10.175.84.31..1023 a 
ctivated by USERID1 (>CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19)   
IPPT0222 SmartTrace >CONN 0000121ED98933A3 CS19 Type=PTC Stack=TCPIP RAddr=ip.address
RPort=port LAddr=ip.address Lport=port 

for SmartTraces that are predefined, the activity log shows

IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition MYPC added by THOLO01                                         
IPPT0222 SmartTrace MYPC Type=TCP Stack=*        RAddr=ip.address RPort=* LAddr=* Lport=* 
IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition MYPC updated by THOLO01                                       
IPPT0222 SmartTrace MYPC Type=TCP Stack=*        RAddr=ip.address RPort=* LAddr=* Lport=* 
IPPT0200 SmartTrace definition MYPC activated by THOLO01                                     
IPPT0222 SmartTrace MYPC Type=TCP Stack=*        RAddr=ip.address RPort=* LAddr=* Lport=* 

 

If you have your activity log / STC output archived, you can search on IPPT0200 for as far back as you need.

If you do not archive the activity log, there is no way to find that information beyond what is available in either your current STC or the activity log in NetMaster.
