Obvious Tip: How to turn on Tracing in Asp.net

I was wanting to look at my session state variables and a few other tracing bits in my ASP.NET application. It’s fairly easy to turn on and it makes for a nice and nasty look page.

Either way, it proves quite helpful to get those really ugly issues solved fast.

Just add this to your configuration file:

<trace enabled="true" requestLimit="40" localOnly="false"/>

example:

<configuration>
<system.web>
<trace enabled="true" requestLimit="40" localOnly="false"/>
</system.web>
</configuration>

Notice, localOnly needs to be false if you are not actually on the physical server. Duh!

You can read much more about this over @ Microsoft.

Happy Coding!
