MPS issue job003340

TitleMPS_TELEMETRY_CONTROL=65535 is ugly and not future-proof
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionIf you want to see all events in the telemetry stream, you have to turn them all on in the telemetry filter. The recommended way to do this seems to be to set


but it is not clear what it means (turn on the first 16 event categories?) and hard to document. Also it is not future-proof: should there ever be more than 16 event categories it would go wrong. If we are recommending that people put this kind of thing in their .gdbinit file, we should have something better than this.
AnalysisPerhaps just support


RB thought that there might be a slippery slope here: if we allow this, then we'll have to allow


or whatever, but I think that's unlikely. However, while we're bike-shedding, I think the event categories should be made case-insensitive, so that you can write


instead of this meaning "no events" as at present.
