Exchange: Exmon Tracelog -stop "Exchange Event Trace" Produces Invalid option given: Event

Summary:

When launching Exmon you receive "Unknown StartTrace error (183) This occurs because Exmon continues to collect data in an .ETL file although Exmon is not running. This file caps at 512MB. Once this is capped, Exmon cannot start because it cannot log any more data.

You perfmon the following task to stop the trace

From your resourcekit directory you type in the following command:

C:\Programfiles\resourcekit> Tracelog -stop “Exchange Event Trace”

You immediately receive:

Invalid option given: Event

You then enter the following command:

C:\Programfiles\resourcekit> Tracelog -l

The output shows that the "Exchange Event Trace" is running

Solution:

This occurs because you pasted Tracelog -stop “Exchange Event Trace” into your command prompt. Re-type the command and it should terminate the trace.

The best thing about louis vuitton is the amount of versatility to the line-with vuitton handbags in every design, material, color, and Monogram Graffiti for every occasion. Monogram Groom is by far the best known purse brand of our time, and one of the most recognizable brands in the world.
