How to: Delete a Trace (Transact-SQL)

This topic describes how to use stored procedures 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.
