# Traces of TCM Search Indexer

I'm trying to obtain traces of the TCM Search Indexer service, with the new Content Manager tracing tool but with no success.

I'm executing:

``````Start-TcmTracing -TraceFile C:\tridion\log\indexer.log -ProcessNames TcmSearchIndexer
``````

to start tracing the service, the command returns me the Id of the tracing process, but no traces appear from that service.

If no `-ProcessName` is entered, then I can see traces of `w3wp`, `TcmServiceHost`, etc. but nothing from `Search Indexer`.

Is there any other modification needed to extract those traces? or simply the service is not working as expected?

• Not that this helps you... but I have the same results on an 8.5 box, so I guess indeed tracing is not enabled for this process? – Nuno Linhares Aug 2 '17 at 17:14
