Capture trace: Captures IPDS data in a file as the data is
being received from the host. The trace file also contains any
reply data that the printer has sent to the host. The trace file is
stored in the /opt/XRXnps/XRXipds/ipdstraces directory.
Playback trace: Plays back the previously captured trace file.
The trace file can also be printed. When a trace file is selected
for playback, the system automatically disconnects from the
host, and reconnects when the playback is complete.
NOTE: During a trace capture or playback, the job settings, tray
mappings, and stacker mappings are not available and cannot be
changed until the trace activity is complete.
