Z and I Emulator for Web services
Use the Z and I Emulator for Web Services window to manage Z and I Emulator for Web services. This window
shows the status of each service, the status of the trace option for each service, and
lets you view the server's message and trace log. You can also refresh the view to see the
current status of each service.
The following services are available:
- The Redirector gives clients access to telnet hosts other than
the Web server from which they were downloaded. The Redirector supports TLS security. The
Service status (started or stopped) and the trace status (started or stopped) remains the
same across a Service Manager start or stop for the Redirector.
- The i5/OS and OS/400 proxy server enables all the data to flow
through one configured port instead of multiple ports. The Service status (started or
stopped) and the trace status (started or stopped) remains the same across a Service
Manager start or stop for the i5/OS and OS/400 Proxy Server.
- Trace allows you to start and stop the server's trace facility,
which lets you capture and view information that can help in resolving problems.
- Service Manager Trace allows you to stop, start, and set the
trace level for the Service Manager's trace facility, which lets you capture and view
information that can help in resolving problems with the Service Manager. The current
service status and trace status remain the same across Service Manager stops and restarts.
Starting and stopping a service or trace
To start and stop a service or trace:
- Highlight the service.
- Click the Start/Stop Service or Start/Stop Trace button (depending on which service you
are starting or stopping). The Start service and Start trace buttons alternate between
start and stop. For example, if you click the Start Service button to begin a service,
this same button automatically changes to Stop Service.
To see message or trace information created by the Redirector, click Server Log. To
make the log easier to read, copy the information to the clipboard and paste it into a
Click Service Manager Trace to display the Service Manager Trace window.
- Trace Active
- To turn tracing on, click Yes. To turn tracing off, click No.
- Trace Level
- Set the Trace Level by selecting a value from 1 (collects only critical messages) to 3
(collects detailed trace information).
Click OK to start the service manager trace. The trace status and trace level remain
the same across Service Manager starts and stops.
