DBCC TRACESTATUS returns a column for the trace flag number and a column for the status. This indicates whether the trace flag is ON (1) or OFF (0). The column heading for the trace flag number is either Global Trace Flag or Session Trace Flag, depending on whether you are checking the status for a global or a session trace flag.

Remarks

In SQL Server, there are two types of trace flags: session and global. Session trace flags are active for a connection and are visible only for that connection. Global trace flags are set at the server level and are visible to every connection on the server.
