The CEP Event Tracer is an important tool to monitor events. This tool provides the functionality to trace the events that take place in each and every component. Event tracing is disabled for each configuration by default, and therefore, it is required to enable it manually.
Please note that event tracer is supported only in super tenant mode. Event tracing capabilities are not available in tenant mode.
Enabling/Disabling Event Tracer
The above example shows how to enable/disable event tracing for an event receiver configuration. Event tracing can be enabled/disabled in the same way for Event Publishers and Execution Plans. However, note that enabling/disabling tracing for a configurations results in the redeployment of that configuration.
