Subject Re: can't turn tracing on
Date Thu, 23 Aug 2018 16:35:05 GMT

You were right, the tracer process was misconfigured. Now I can see some
traces like major compactions but all my custom ones are not written to the
trace table. My user is root, table is trace and I have Table.READ,
Table.WRITE on the trace table. Any ideas on what could be causing this?
