Title: Parse the Client ID in an MKDE Trace 
Category: Pervasive.SQL PSQL (Any Version) 
Keywords: mkde trace, client id 
Description: Question:
What does the Client ID in a MKDE Trace file mean? How do I parse it out?

Answer:
The Client ID is the network address of the workstation that sent the request. For an IP network, you parse out the useful information this way:

Example: CID=ffffffff00000a3c64550ef0

1. Clip off the last two bytes, in this case the 0ef0.
2. Use the previous 4 bytes. This is the IP address of the client. Look at it this way:

0a.3c.64.55, or 10.60.100.85

Easy, wasn't it?
