How to find jobs and agents with Debug logging turned on Print


Having debug or tracing enabled on jobs and agents can produce very large logs that can fill up hard drives. It can be a daunting task to find the one job in many or the one agent in many that has this set.

Here are some ways to locate these jobs or agents.
