NAME         top

       lttng-disable-event - Disable LTTng event rules

SYNOPSIS         top

       lttng [GENERAL OPTIONS] disable-event
             (--kernel [--probe | --function | --syscall] |
              --userspace | --jul | --log4j | --python)
             [--session=SESSION] [--channel=CHANNEL]
             (--all-events | EVENT[,EVENT]...)

DESCRIPTION         top

       The lttng disable-event command disables one or more event rules
       previously enabled by the lttng-enable-event(1) command.

       Event rules are always assigned to a channel when they are created.
       If the --channel option is omitted, the default channel named
       channel0 is used.

       If the --session option is omitted, the chosen channel is picked from
       the current tracing session.

       If the --all-events option is used, all the existing event rules of
       the chosen domain are disabled. Otherwise, at least one event rule to
       disable named EVENT must be specified.

       With the --kernel option, the event source type can be specified
       using one of the --tracepoint, --probe, --function, or --syscall
       options. See lttng-enable-event(1) for more details about event
       source types.

       Events can be disabled while tracing is active (use lttng-start(1) to
       make a tracing session active).

OPTIONS         top

       General options are described in lttng(1).

       One of:

       -j, --jul
           Disable event rules in the java.util.logging (JUL) domain.

       -k, --kernel
           Disable event rules in the Linux kernel domain.

       -l, --log4j
           Disable event rules in the Apache log4j domain.

       -p, --python
           Disable event rules in the Python domain.

       -u, --userspace
           Disable event rules in the user space domain.

       -c CHANNEL, --channel=CHANNEL
           Disable event rules in the channel named CHANNEL instead of the
           default channel name channel0.

       -s SESSION, --session=SESSION
           Disable event rules in the tracing session named SESSION instead
           of the current tracing session.

   Event source type
       One of:

           Linux kernel kretprobe. Only available with the --kernel domain

           Linux kernel kprobe. Only available with the --kernel domain

           Linux kernel system call. Only available with the --kernel domain

           Linux kernel or application tracepoint. Only available with the
           --kernel domain option (default Linux kernel domain event source

       -a, --all-events
           Disable all enabled event rules in the chosen tracing session,
           tracing domain, and channel.

   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 available command options.


           Set to 1 to abort the process after the first error is

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

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

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

           Full session daemon binary path.

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

       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

FILES         top

           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.

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

           User LTTng runtime and configuration directory.

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

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

           $LTTNG_HOME defaults to $HOME when not explicitly set.

EXIT STATUS         top


           Command error

           Undefined command

           Fatal error

           Command warning (something went wrong during the command)
