POSIX_TRACE_ATTR_DESTROY(3P) POSIX Programmer's Manual POSIX_TRACE_ATTR_DESTROY(3P)
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of this interface may differ (consult the correspond-
ing 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 initialize 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 18.104.22.168, 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 individual 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 function 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 object.
The following sections are informative.
The posix_trace_attr_destroy() and posix_trace_attr_init() functions may be removed in a future version.
