STOPFILE-NAME

Syntax
STOPFILE-NAME <file name>
Variable
VT_STOPFILE_NAME
Description
Specifies the name of a file which indicates that the Intel Trace Collector should stop the application prematurely and write a tracefile. This works only with the fail-safe Intel Trace Collector libraries. On Linux* systems the same behavior can be achieved by sending the signal
SIGINT
to one of the application processes, but this is not possible on Microsoft* Windows* OS.
If specified, the Intel Trace Collector checks for the existence of such a file from time to time. If detected, the stop file is removed again and the shutdown is initiated.
