POSIX_TRACE_ATTR_DESTROY(3PPOSIX Programmer's ManuPOSIX_TRACE_ATTR_DESTROY(3P)PROLOG
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_attr_destroy, posix_trace_attr_init — destroy and initial‐
ize the trace stream attributes object (TRACING)
int posix_trace_attr_destroy(trace_attr_t *attr);
int posix_trace_attr_init(trace_attr_t *attr);
The posix_trace_attr_destroy() function shall destroy an initialized
trace attributes object. A destroyed attr attributes object can be
reinitialized using posix_trace_attr_init(); the results of otherwise
referencing the object after it has been destroyed are undefined.
The posix_trace_attr_init() function shall initialize a trace
attributes object attr with the default value for all of the individual
attributes used by a given implementation. The read-only generation-
version and clock-resolution attributes of the newly initialized trace
attributes object shall be set to their appropriate values (see Section
22.214.171.124, posix_trace_status_info Structure).
Results are undefined if posix_trace_attr_init() is called specifying
an already initialized attr attributes object.
Implementations may add extensions to the trace attributes object
structure as permitted in the Base Definitions volume of POSIX.1‐2008,
Chapter 2, Conformance.
The resulting attributes object (possibly modified by setting individ‐
ual attributes values), when used by posix_trace_create(), defines the
attributes of the trace stream created. A single attributes object can
be used in multiple calls to posix_trace_create(). After one or more
trace streams have been created using an attributes object, any func‐
tion affecting that attributes object, including destruction, shall not
affect any trace stream previously created. An initialized attributes
object also serves to receive the attributes of an existing trace
stream or trace log when calling the posix_trace_get_attr() function.
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return a value of
zero. Otherwise, they shall return the corresponding error number.
The posix_trace_attr_destroy() function may fail if:
EINVAL The value of attr is invalid.
The posix_trace_attr_init() function shall fail if:
ENOMEM Insufficient memory exists to initialize the trace attributes
The following sections are informative.
The posix_trace_attr_destroy() and posix_trace_attr_init() functions
may be removed in a future version.
