Activate full message logs for RSSL connections in RFA C++

For SSLED connections, when I add a "sslapi.cnf" file, I get traces including all messages between RFA and the infra.

For RSSL connections, I would like to know the equivalent of "sslapi.cnf" file. When I activate RSSL traces with the setting "traceMsg", I don't get all messages send or received from the infra.

Below is additional RFA example configuration I used to log all messages. <Connection_RSSL> is you RSSL connection in RFA configuration file. We need to increase traceMsgMaxMsgSize to capture a large message such as Dictionary because sometime the size of the dictionary response larger than default traceMsgMaxMsgSize. If you wan to log message hex you can just change traceMsgHex to true. You can find additional RFA configuration from RFA Configuration guide.

\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\connectionType	= "RSSL"
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\rsslPort 	= "<RSSL Port>"
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\hostName		= "<ADS/Provider Hostname>"
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsg = false
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgToFile = true
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\tracePing = true
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgFileName   = "RSSLConsumerTrace"
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgDomains = "all"
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceRespMsg = true
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceReqMsg = true
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgHex = false 
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgMaxMsgSize = 200000000
\Connections\<Connection_RSSL>\traceMsgMultipleFiles = true

The parameters for tracing are detailed in the RFA Config Guide document, "Chapter 3 : User-Defined Namespace Configuration Parameters" and permit filtering out of different messages.

By default with `traceMsg` or `traceMsgToFile` only RSSL pings are filtered out.

An example file configuration may look like this:

\Connections\X\connectionType = "RSSL"
\Connections\X\rsslPort = "14002"
\Connections\X\serverList = "ads1,ads2"
\Connections\X\traceMsgToFile = "True"
\Connections\X\tracePing = "True"

Thanks for your answers.

Actually some filters were set to "true", that's why I didn't get all messages I expected:

\Connections\Connection_SSLED_RMDS_Sub\traceFilterOutRequests="True"
\Connections\Connection_SSLED_RMDS_Sub\traceFilterOutCloses="True"
\Connections\Connection_SSLED_RMDS_Sub\traceFilterOutStatuses="True"
\Connections\Connection_SSLED_RMDS_Sub\traceFilterOutRefreshes="True"

If I set theses settings to "false", I have all messages.
