Delete a Trace (Transact-SQL)


This topic describes how to use stored procedures to delete a trace.

For an example of using trace stored procedures, see Create a Trace (Transact-SQL).

To delete a trace

  1. Execute sp_trace_setstatus by specifying @status = 0 to stop the trace.

  2. Execute sp_trace_setstatus by specifying @status = 2 to close the trace and delete its information from the server.


A trace must be stopped first before it can be closed.
