    There is any possibility to check on what devices the debug is enabled and running . Some of the tool admins enabling the debug for troubleshooting and it is being missed to disable again .

    I noticed there are logs being created on the DC that collects the information. You'll find it under DC installation folder, IMDataCollector/apache-karaf-x.x.x/dcdebug/. There's a log for each type of enabled debug.

    I also noticed DCDebug is active only until you restart the DC, so DC restart should clear the debug list.

    Catalin is correct. Some additional details to add to what he already shared.

    Only discovery logging and poll errors are written to files on the DC server.

    The Detailed Poll Logging and Detailed SNMP Logging that can be enabled via the DA_Host:8581/dcdebug page has a few details worth knowing.

    • There is no way to determine what IP debug was enabled for
    • Only 1 IP address at a time can have debug of either type enabled at one time
    • The debug once enabled is in memory only, nothing is written to files on the DC.
      • This is why it MUST be collected before being disabled.
      • If disabled before being collected, it's lost and needs to be recreated.
    • If it is unknown/forgotten what IP debug was enabled for, only a DC restart will reset it and disable it.

    One correction to:

    • If it is unknown/forgotten what IP debug was enabled for, only a DC restart will reset it and disable it.

    Should be:

    • If it is unknown/forgotten what IP debug was enabled and you want to turn it off, use Enable Detailed Poll or SNMP logging, and enter a valid IP to enable logging.  Then choose Disable Detailed Poll/SNMP logging, and use same IP to disable completely.
