How can I interpret trace logs from the command line?

A. The Windows 2000 Resource Kit provides Tracedmp.exe, which you can use to either process trace log data or poll the trace log realtime and convert the information to a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file. To enable/disable tracing, use the resource kit Tracelog.exe program. The syntax is as follows (see the resource kit Help file for more details):

Usage: tracedmp \[options\]  
         | \[-h | -? | -help\]
        -o                 Output CSV file
        -guid              MOF definition file
        -rt \[LoggerName\]   Realtime tracedmp from the logger 
        -summary           Summary.txt only
        -?                 Display usage information
