trace.h — tracing

Synopsis

#include <trace.h>

Description

The <trace.h> header shall define the posix_trace_event_info structure, which shall include at least the following members:

trace_event_id_t  posix_event_id
pid_t             posix_pid
void             *posix_prog_address
pthread_t         posix_thread_id
struct timespec   posix_timestamp
int               posix_truncation_status

The <trace.h> header shall define the posix_trace_status_info structure, which shall include at least the following members:

int     posix_stream_full_status
int     posix_stream_overrun_status
int     posix_stream_status
int     posix_log_full_status
int     posix_log_overrun_status
int     posix_stream_flush_error
int     posix_stream_flush_status

The <trace.h> header shall define the following symbolic constants:

POSIX_TRACE_ALL_EVENTS
POSIX_TRACE_APPEND
POSIX_TRACE_CLOSE_FOR_CHILD
POSIX_TRACE_FILTER
POSIX_TRACE_FLUSH
POSIX_TRACE_FLUSH_START
POSIX_TRACE_FLUSH_STOP
POSIX_TRACE_FLUSHING
POSIX_TRACE_FULL
POSIX_TRACE_LOOP
POSIX_TRACE_NO_OVERRUN
POSIX_TRACE_NOT_FLUSHING
POSIX_TRACE_NOT_FULL
POSIX_TRACE_INHERITED
POSIX_TRACE_NOT_TRUNCATED
POSIX_TRACE_OVERFLOW
POSIX_TRACE_OVERRUN
POSIX_TRACE_RESUME
POSIX_TRACE_RUNNING
POSIX_TRACE_START
POSIX_TRACE_STOP
POSIX_TRACE_SUSPENDED
POSIX_TRACE_SYSTEM_EVENTS
POSIX_TRACE_TRUNCATED_READ
POSIX_TRACE_TRUNCATED_RECORD
POSIX_TRACE_UNNAMED_USER_EVENT
POSIX_TRACE_UNTIL_FULL
POSIX_TRACE_WOPID_EVENTS

The <trace.h> header shall define the size_t, trace_attr_t, trace_event_id_t, trace_event_set_t, and trace_id_t types as described in <sys/types.h>.

The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.
