This is a plugin for PS3 Media Server (PMS) which makes it easy to gather and view debug information.


  • download the jar file and place it in the PMS plugins directory

  • restart PMS


To uninstall the debug packer, remove the jar file from the plugins directory and restart PMS.


Under the General Configuration tab there is a button called "View and Zip Logs". Press this when needed to gather the files. A dialog box appears which allows you to select if certain files should be included in the debug pack. Once all is done press the "Zip selected files" button and in the PMS directory a file called pms_dbg.zip has been created. This file contains all logs needed for PMS and PMS plugin developers to find out the problem.

You can also view or create any of the registered files by pressing the buttons on the right. A greyed-out item means the file doesn't exist yet.

Adding Files

Files can be added manually to DbgPack by setting dbgpack to a comma-separated list of files in PMS.conf:

dbgpack = c:\\path\\to\\mylog,c:\\path\\to\\myconf


The DbgPacker packs the PMS.conf, WEB.conf and the PMS log file (debug.log) plus any files that plugins say should be included. To include new files into the debug packer add dbgpack.java to your project and implement the dbgpack interface in your main plugin class:

public Object dbgpack_cb() {
    return mylog;

or if you have several files:

public Object dbgpack_cb() {
    return new String[] {mylog, myconf};

This adds mylog and/or myconf to the list of files that will be packed. If the file is missing when the pack is to be performed it will be ignored.
