posix_trace_start man page
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
posix_trace_start, posix_trace_stop — trace start and stop (TRACING)
#include <trace.h> int posix_trace_start(trace_id_t trid); int posix_trace_stop (trace_id_t trid);
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.
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return a value of zero. Otherwise, they shall return the corresponding error number.
These functions shall fail if:
The value of the argument trid does not correspond to an active trace stream and thus no trace stream was started or stopped.
The operation was interrupted by a signal and thus the trace stream was not necessarily started or stopped.
The following sections are informative.
The posix_trace_start() and posix_trace_stop() functions may be removed in a future version.
