For example, suppose you wanted more information about the syntax of the trace command. You would simply enter lsnrctl help trace. Click the View Code button to see an example of what Oracle would return.
The output reveals that the commands are lsnrctl trace off, lsnrctl trace user, and lsnrctl trace admin, with an optional listener name for when you're running multiple listeners. The next lesson discusses how to use LSNRCTL to start the listener.
