Notes

In most cases, the Perforce server trace flags are useful only to administrators working with Perforce Technical Support to diagnose or investigate a problem.

The preferred way to set trace flags for the Perforce server (or proxy) is to set them on the p4d (or p4p) command line. For technical reasons, this does not work for sites running Perforce servers or proxies as services under Windows. Administrators at such sites can use p4 set to set the trace flags within P4DEBUG, allowing the NT service to run with the flags enabled.

Some server debug levels require specific server release levels.

Setting server debug levels on a Perforce server (p4d) has no effect on the debug level of a Perforce Proxy (p4p) process, and vice versa.

For further information, see the Perforce System Administrator's Guide.
