*When finished recreating it is very important to turn the trace off and remove the trace attribute from the acid.

The trace will print to the syslog and each record starts with TSS-x, x can be one of many alphabetic characters, followed by either three or four TSS-n records, n being the numeric values of 1, 2, 3 (optional), 4 and 5 (optional).
