NAME

       lttng-destroy - Destroy an LTTng tracing session

SYNOPSIS

       lttng [GENERAL OPTIONS] destroy [--no-wait] [--all | SESSION]

DESCRIPTION

       The lttng destroy command destroys one or more tracing sessions.

       If no options are specified, the current tracing session is destroyed (see lttng-create(1)
       for more information about the current tracing session).

       If SESSION is specified, the existing tracing session named SESSION is destroyed. lttng
       list outputs all the existing tracing sessions (see lttng-list(1)).

       If the --all option is used, all the tracing sessions, as listed in the output of lttng
       list, are destroyed.

       Destroying a tracing session stops any tracing running within the latter. By default, the
       implicit lttng-stop(1) command invoked by the lttng destroy command ensures that the
       tracing session’s trace data is valid before returning. With the --no-wait option, the
       lttng-stop(1) command finishes immediately, hence a local trace might not be valid when
       the command is done. In this case, there is no way to know when the trace becomes valid.

       Destroying a tracing session does not destroy the recorded trace data, if any; it frees
       resources acquired by the session daemon and tracer side, making sure to flush all trace
       data.

OPTIONS

       General options are described in lttng(1).

       -a, --all
           Destroy all tracing sessions.

       -n, --no-wait
           Do not ensure that the chosen tracing session’s trace data is valid before returning
           to the prompt.

   Program information
       -h, --help
           Show command help.

           This option, like lttng-help(1), attempts to launch /usr/bin/man to view the command’s
           man page. The path to the man pager can be overridden by the LTTNG_MAN_BIN_PATH
           environment variable.

       --list-options
           List available command options.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       LTTNG_ABORT_ON_ERROR
           Set to 1 to abort the process after the first error is encountered.

       LTTNG_HOME
           Overrides the $HOME environment variable. Useful when the user running the commands
           has a non-writable home directory.

       LTTNG_MAN_BIN_PATH
           Absolute path to the man pager to use for viewing help information about LTTng
           commands (using lttng-help(1) or lttng COMMAND --help).

       LTTNG_SESSION_CONFIG_XSD_PATH
           Path in which the session.xsd session configuration XML schema may be found.

       LTTNG_SESSIOND_PATH
           Full session daemon binary path.

           The --sessiond-path option has precedence over this environment variable.

       Note that the lttng-create(1) command can spawn an LTTng session daemon automatically if
       none is running. See lttng-sessiond(8) for the environment variables influencing the
       execution of the session daemon.

FILES

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttngrc
           User LTTng runtime configuration.

           This is where the per-user current tracing session is stored between executions of
           lttng(1). The current tracing session can be set with lttng-set-session(1). See lttng-
           create(1) for more information about tracing sessions.

       $LTTNG_HOME/lttng-traces
           Default output directory of LTTng traces. This can be overridden with the --output
           option of the lttng-create(1) command.

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttng
           User LTTng runtime and configuration directory.

       $LTTNG_HOME/.lttng/sessions
           Default location of saved user tracing sessions (see lttng-save(1) and lttng-load(1)).

       /usr/local/etc/lttng/sessions
           System-wide location of saved tracing sessions (see lttng-save(1) and lttng-load(1)).

           Note
           $LTTNG_HOME defaults to $HOME when not explicitly set.

EXIT STATUS

       0
           Success

       1
           Command error

       2
           Undefined command

       3
           Fatal error

       4
           Command warning (something went wrong during the command)
