The Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver is thread safe in accordance with the ODBC specification and can safely be used behind threaded applications.
The ODBC calls an application makes can be traced:

- From within the Driver Manager.
Within the driver manager by an application
An application can turn tracing on in the Driver Manager by using the ODBC API SQLSetConnectAttr (...,SQL_ATTR_TRACE,...).
The trace file name may also be specified with the SQLSetConnectAttr attribute SQL_ATTR_TRACEFILE.
From within the driver manager
For the unixODBC Driver Manager, add two attributes to the [ODBC] section (create one if none exists) in odbcinst.ini.
Trace = Yes
Trace = Yes
TraceFile = /tmp/unixodbc.log
Ensure that the user who is running the application to be traced has write permission to the log file (and to the directory containing it), or no tracing information will be produced.
