POSIX_TRACE_GET_ATTR(3P) POSIX Programmer's Manual POSIX_TRACE_GET_ATTR(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_get_attr, posix_trace_get_status - retrieve the trace
attributes or trace status (TRACING)
int posix_trace_get_attr(trace_id_t trid, trace_attr_t *attr);
int posix_trace_get_status(trace_id_t trid,
struct posix_trace_status_info *statusinfo);
The posix_trace_get_attr() function shall copy the attributes of the
active trace stream identified by trid into the object pointed to by
the attr argument. If the Trace Log option is supported, trid may
represent a pre-recorded trace log.
The posix_trace_get_status() function shall return, in the structure
pointed to by the statusinfo argument, the current trace status for the
trace stream identified by the trid argument. These status values
returned in the structure pointed to by statusinfo shall have been
appropriately read to ensure that the returned values are consistent.
If the Trace Log option is supported and the trid argument refers to a
pre-recorded trace stream, the status shall be the status of the com‐
pleted trace stream.
Each time the posix_trace_get_status() function is used, the overrun
status of the trace stream shall be reset to POSIX_TRACE_NO_OVERRUN
immediately after the call completes. If the Trace Log option is sup‐
ported, the posix_trace_get_status() function shall behave the same as
when the option is not supported except for the following differences:
* If the trid argument refers to a trace stream with log, each time
the posix_trace_get_status() function is used, the log overrun sta‐
tus of the trace stream shall be reset to POSIX_TRACE_NO_OVERRUN and
the flush_error status shall be reset to zero immediately after the
* If the trid argument refers to a pre-recorded trace stream, the sta‐
tus returned shall be the status of the completed trace stream and
the status values of the trace stream shall not be reset.
Upon successful completion, these functions shall return a value of
zero. Otherwise, they shall return the corresponding error number.
The posix_trace_get_attr() function stores the trace attributes in the
object pointed to by attr, if successful.
The posix_trace_get_status() function stores the trace status in the
object pointed to by statusinfo, if successful.
These functions shall fail if:
EINVAL The trace stream argument trid does not correspond to a valid
active trace stream or a valid trace log.
