There has been one on the binary format, but I doubt it is up-to-date.
The closest thing we currently have to a specification is a reference
implementation (lttng and lttv libltttraceread).
There has never been any specification for the text output. Note that if
you plan to parse the textDump output, you might want to try
lttv -m textDump --path_output -t tracepath

Old format documentation here :

Not with the current lttng design. One binary log would cause too much
cache line bouncing on SMP systems anyway.

You might want to investigate using the LGPL libltttraceread library,
part of LTTV, to save yourself some time. :)
