Spin on Crash

If Spin on Crash is set to Enable and a problem is encountered that causes the system to crash, the system will stay up if possible so that the crash state can be examined by COS Shell Commands. Disable is the default setting.

Copy Tmp on Crash

If Copy Tmp on Crash is set to Enable, then the system attempts to copy the contents of /usr/tmp/app for your review in the following order:

Disable is the default setting. For more information, see Debug a Crash.

Crash Dump Type

If Crash Dump Type is set to Full and a problem is encountered that causes the system to crash, then a full crash dump is written, suitable for use by viewcore. Mini is the default setting. For more information, see Debug a Crash.

Detail Crash Log

If Detail Crash Log is set to Enable and a problem is encountered that causes the system to crash, then any log filtering that was set in Debug Flags Setting is ignored and a detailed crash log is saved for debugging purposes. Otherwise, the filtering options are honored to determine how much output to save in the crash log. Disable is the default setting.

For more information, see Filtering Log Output.

Crash Recovery

Crash Recovery is set to Enable by default. If a problem is encountered that causes the system to crash, the system enters a crash recovery state. Disable prevents a crash recovery state from proceeding so that it is then possible to debug an application.

USB Keep-Alive

To meet reduced power consumption requirements, USB hard drives may power down after a specified period of inactivity. Waking up from the powered-down state takes time, which increases response time. To avoid delays in gameplay, users may Enable the USB Keep-Alive setting. If USB Keep-Alive is set to Enable, it prevents a USB hard drive from powering down. Disable is the default setting.

NOTE:
Many users do not enable the USB Keep-Alive setting. It is recommended that you implement your application with the assumption that the USB HDD is in the low-power state and will take time to power up and load data.

Debug Flags Setting

Using the settings under Debug Flags Setting, you may limit, or filter, the Cafe logging output that is produced as your application runs.

For more information, see Filtering Log Output.

Synchronous Printing

If Synchronous Printing is set to Enable, all output from OSReport is printed, even if system timing is affected by doing so. If set to Disable, then output from OSReport is dropped with a message if the debugging interface cannot keep up. Disable is the default setting.

NOTE:
Synchronous printing is not available in Production Mode.

Override Debug Print Level

You may limit Cafe logging output based on the severity of a log message. The choices are:

LV -1: No Override LV 1: Warnings (default) LV 7: Verbose
LV 0: Errors LV 2: Information

When the LV -1: No Override option is selected, the filtering is determined by the -v option of the caferun command. For the other options, the numbered LV level corresponds to the equivalent numeric argument to the -v option.

Process Debug Setting


Process Debug Setting

You may also filter Cafe logging output based on the process.

Each of the following settings can be set to Enable (default) or Disable.

Game Process Debug System Application Debug
Cafe Menu Process Debug Overlay Application Debug

Module Debug Setting


Module Debug Setting

You may also filter Cafe logging output based on the module.

Each of the following settings can be set to Enable (default) or Disable.

OS Debug Sound Debug Network Debug Background Daemon Debug
Loader Debug Filesystem Debug USB Debug Other Debug
Graphics Debug Pads Debug Video Debug

Behavior at the time of no input

Auto Dimming (Screen Burn-in Reduction)

If Auto Dimming is set to Use, any display device that is connected to the system, such as a GamePad, dims after 5 minutes of non-use. If Auto Dimming is set to Not Use, the GamePad never dims. Use is the default setting.

Auto Power-Down

If Auto Power-Down is set to Use, the system powers down automatically after the set period of time. If Auto Power-Down is set to Not Use, the system never powers down automatically. Use is the default setting.

Time before powering down

If Auto Power-Down is set to Use, this setting is used to determine the amount of time to pass in non-use before the system powers down automatically. The available settings are 1, 5, and 10 minutes (for Debug), and 1-12 hours of normal use. 1 hour is the default setting.

Standby Function Settings (Eco mode)

Enable Standby Function

If Enable Standby Function is set to Enable, then the system enters Eco mode after the standby time (see below). Disable is the default setting.

Standby time (min)

If Enable Standby Function is set to Enable, then the system enters Eco mode after the standby time 60 minutes is the default setting.

[Reset to default]

Selecting this setting restores the default Eco mode settings.
