enabled = on
; Log messages verbosity level (from 0 to 7)
; 0 - only critical errors, 7 - all including debug messages, default - 3
filter.priority = 7
; Enable logging of external utilities calls
show.util_exec = on
; Enable logging of stdin and stdout for external utilities calls (do not use in production environment)
show.util_exec_io = on
pmmcli-rc file in a text editor (create a new one if it does not exist):

FORCE_DEBUG_LOG parameter from 0 to 1:
CONFIG_TEXT: FORCE_DEBUG_LOG 1
