Hey Chiharu-san,

     In terms of debugging, I typically modify my policy so that it prints out data to a file to test it.  Another method is to start up the supervisor in console mode.  This forces the supervisor to display to the command line. 

    Just do the following:

        Modify qb.conf and set supervisor_logfile = stdout

        open a command window and cd to the supervisor's location.

        cd C:\Program Files\pfx\qube\sbin
        cd /usr/local/pfx/qube/sbin

        supervisor --console

    That's it.  A simple Ctrl-C will stop the supervisor.  (Since the supervisor is normally setup with 2 licenses, you can run the supervisor on another machine for testing only)
