posix_trace_start, posix_trace_stop — trace start and stop (TRACING)

Synopsis

#include <trace.h>

int posix_trace_start(trace_id_t trid);
int posix_trace_stop (trace_id_t trid);

Description

The posix_trace_start() and posix_trace_stop() functions, respectively, shall start and stop the trace stream identified by the argument trid.

The effect of calling the posix_trace_start() function shall be recorded in the trace stream as the POSIX_TRACE_START system trace event and the status of the trace stream shall become POSIX_TRACE_RUNNING. If the trace stream is in progress when this function is called, the POSIX_TRACE_START system trace event shall not be recorded and the trace stream shall continue to run. If the trace stream is full, the POSIX_TRACE_START system trace event shall not be recorded and the status of the trace stream shall not be changed.

The effect of calling the posix_trace_stop() function shall be recorded in the trace stream as the POSIX_TRACE_STOP system trace event and the status of the trace stream shall become POSIX_TRACE_SUSPENDED. If the trace stream is suspended when this function is called, the POSIX_TRACE_STOP system trace event shall not be recorded and the trace stream shall remain suspended. If the trace stream is full, the POSIX_TRACE_STOP system trace event shall not be recorded and the status of the trace stream shall not be changed.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, these functions shall return a value of zero. Otherwise, they shall return the corresponding error number.

Errors

These functions shall fail if:

EINVAL
The value of the argument trid does not correspond to an active trace stream and thus no trace stream was started or stopped.
EINTR
The operation was interrupted by a signal and thus the trace stream was not necessarily started or stopped.

The following sections are informative.

Future Directions

The posix_trace_start() and posix_trace_stop() functions may be removed in a future version.
