7.4.2 Using Monitor

As with most packages, monitor can be turned on or off at compile and/or run times using the packages.conf and data.pkg files.

The monitor output can be sent to the standard output channel, to an mnc-generated file, or to both simultaneously. For mnc output, the flag:

   monitor_mnc=.TRUE.,
should be set within the data.mnc file. For output to both ASCII and mnc, the flag
   outputTypesInclusive=.TRUE.,
should be set within the PARM03 section of the main data file. It should be noted that the outputTypesInclusive flag will make ALL kinds of output (that is, everything written by mdsio, mnc, and monitor) simultaneously active so it should be used only with caution-and perhaps only for debugging purposes.
