System creates dynamic trace files and you need to know whether the MS SQL Trace 4.4 event collector is able to collect from them.


The collector reads a specific trace. This trace is created by a Microsoft SQL server and can contain many files(configurable by trace parameters). These files look like: file_01.trc, file_02.trc.

The collector query only looks for "file.trc" as template, and all information from trace file are translated by the collector using this template.


The MS SQL Trace event collector 4.4 is does not collect from dynamic trace files.
