How to increase the RER crash sensitivity in Rational Rhapsody

Technote (FAQ)


How do you increase the RER crash reporting sensitivity in IBM Rational Rhapsody?


You would like to increase the crash sensitivity if the RER crash report is either not being created or does not contain enough information.


When Rational Rhapsody crashes, the error information is stored in a separate directory named RER.

This folder can be found in the Rhapsody installation directory.

To increase the crash reporting sensitivity, you would need to change the value of the RER_DUMP_LEVEL flag in the Rhapsody.ini file.

By default the values in the Rhapsody.ini file would look like:



The value of RER_DUMP_LEVEL can be increased from 0 up to 2

Modify, Save and Restart Rational Rhapsody.
