Use the Failed Request Tracing Rules feature page to manage a list of tracing rules for failed requests.
Sort the list by clicking one of the feature page column headings or select a value from the Group by drop-down list to group similar items.
UI Element List
The following tables describe the UI elements that are available on the feature page and in the Actions pane.
Feature Page Elements
Displays the URL traced by a tracing rule for failed requests. The URL can contain, at most, one wildcard and must be local to the directory where the failed request definition is set. For example, the wildcard patterns *.aspx, and ind* will all match the URL www.contoso.com/index.aspx.
Displays the trace providers associated with a tracing rule for failed requests. A provider defines the functional area for tracing. One example is the ASP.NET trace provider, which traces transitions into and out of managed code, including *.aspx requests.
Displays the HTTP status code(s) and substatus code combination(s) traced by a tracing rule for failed requests. There can be multiple status codes in this list, with commas separating each code.
Displays the maximum time, in seconds, that the request should take.
Displays whether the item is local or inherited. Local items are read from the current configuration file, and inherited items are read from a parent configuration file.
Actions Pane Elements
