Hi @Akechi Sato

For such requirement, you will need to tweak EMA source code to enable the HEX trace.

I assume the requirement just only to see the HEX dump along with XmlTraceFile is enabled. You can follow the steps below.

  • In EMA project (you can find the source code in EMA package), look for the file
$Elektron-SDK1.0.1.win\Ema\Src\Access\Impl\ChannelCallbackClient.cpp
  • Find the method named
RsslReactorCallbackRet ChannelCallbackClient::processCallback
  • In there, you will find the condition when the XmlToTraceFile is enable as
if ( pChannelConfig->xmlTraceToFile )
	traceOptions.traceFlags |= RSSL_TRACE_TO_FILE_ENABLE;

You have to add another option to enable HEX trace as followed:

if ( pChannelConfig->xmlTraceToFile )
	traceOptions.traceFlags |= RSSL_TRACE_TO_FILE_ENABLE | RSSL_TRACE_HEX;

with this tweak, you will see the HEX dump as long as the XML trace is enabled. For example:

<!-- Incoming Message (Channel IPC descriptor = 184) -->
<!-- Time: 18:48:22:712 -->

Thank you so much Dhanakrit. That's what I'm looking for.

Hi,

In your EmaConfig.xml you can add the XmlTraceToFile parameter for the Channel that you wish to enable Xml Trace for.

e.g.

<Channel>
<Name value="Channel_1"/>
<ChannelType value="ChannelType::RSSL_SOCKET"/>
<CompressionType value="CompressionType::None"/>
<GuaranteedOutputBuffers value="5000"/>
<Host value="10.13.225.38"/>
<Port value="14002"/> 
<XmlTraceToFile value="1"/> 
</Channel>

Please refer to section 3.2.2 of the EmaConfigGuide.pdf for details on this and other XmlTrace related parameters.

Section 4.4.3 also illustrates an example that sets this value using Programmatic config (rather than EmaConfig.xml).

Regards,

Umer

@Umer.Nalla

Thank you very much for your help. I've followed your suggestion and got the following log:

<!-- Outgoing Message (Channel IPC descriptor = 224) -->
<!-- Time: 10:01:39:575 -->
<!-- rwfMajorVer="14" rwfMinorVer="1" -->
<requestMsg domainType="RSSL_DMT_LOGIN" streamId="1" containerType="RSSL_DT_NO_DATA" flags="0x4 (RSSL_RQMF_STREAMING)" dataSize="0">
    <key  flags="0x22 (RSSL_MKF_HAS_NAME|RSSL_MKF_HAS_ATTRIB)"  name="piyasak" attribContainerType="RSSL_DT_ELEMENT_LIST">
        <attrib>
            <elementList flags="0x8 (RSSL_ELF_HAS_STANDARD_DATA)">
            </elementList>
        </attrib>
    </key>
    <dataBody>
    </dataBody>
</requestMsg>

However, I would also like to have hex data like the following RFA C++ trace file.

<!-- Outgoing Message to 'fxtrd43:14002' on 'localhost' interface -->
<!-- Time: 17:33:44:033 -->

Not sure if I missed something.

Thanks & regards,

Hi Akechi,

I am not aware of EMA's ability to do a hex dump of the messages etc.

When you mentioned Hex, I mistakenly understood it to mean the standard XML trace where the Field Entry data is logged in Hex format, for example:

<updateMsg domainType="RSSL_DMT_MARKET_PRICE" streamId="6" containerType="RSSL_DT_FIELD_LIST" flags="0x10 (RSSL_UPMF_HAS_SEQ_NUM)" updateType="1 (RDM_UPD_EVENT_TYPE_QUOTE)" seqNum="34192" dataSize="81">
    <dataBody>
        <fieldList flags="0x8 (RSSL_FLF_HAS_STANDARD_DATA)">
            <fieldEntry fieldId="3855" data="023E 2910"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="1025" data="0A1B 08"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="22" data="0C52 76"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="30" data="0E0F E0"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="291" data="0E02"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="6544" data="02"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="6579" data="30"/>
            <fieldEntry fieldId="1071" data="0F"/>
        </fieldList>
    </dataBody>
</updateMsg>

Apologies for the confusion.
