3.22.8. Examining details in the Diagnostic Log view

The Diagnostic Log view provides a detailed log of messages that are generated when you connect to a target. This view might help to track down any problems with target connections.

The Diagnostic Log view also enables you to apply filters to remove any unwanted messages from the display. Be aware that the filters persist. Therefore, if the messages do not appear to be helpful, make sure you remove any filtering you have applied.
