NAME

scriptingclient - RSerPool Client (PU) for the Scripting service  

SYNOPSIS

scriptingclient [-poolhandle=pool_handle ] [-environment=file_name ] [-input=file_name ] [-output=file_name ] [-quiet ] [-maxretry=trials ] [-retrydelay=milliseconds ] [-runid=description ] [-transmittimeout=milliseconds ] [-keepaliveinterval=milliseconds ] [-keepalivetimeout=milliseconds ] [-cspinterval=milliseconds ] [-cspserver=address:port ] [-logappend=filename ] [-logcolor=on|off ] [-logfile=filename ] [-loglevel=0-9 ]  

DESCRIPTION

scriptingclient is a Reliable Server Pooling (RSerPool) pool user (PU) for the scripting service. The purpose of this service is to distribute input data to a scripting PE, execute a script doing some useful work on the input data and returning output data. For example, this service can be used for distributed simulation processing.

 

ARGUMENTS

The following options are available:

-poolhandle=pool_handle
Sets the PH to a non-default value; otherwise, the default setting is "ScriptingPool".
Service Parameters:

-environment=file_name
Sets the name of the environment file to upload to the PE. The PE may cache this environment file, allowing to skip a subsequent upload of the same environment file.
-input=file_name
Sets the name of the input file to upload to the PE.
-output=file_name
Sets the name of the output file to write the download from the PE to.
-quiet
Turns on quiet mode, i.e. only few information is printed.
-maxretry=trials
Maximum number of retries upon errors on the remote site. The error counter only increments when the remote-side script returns a non-zero error code. When the error limit is reached, the received output file will be downloaded for debugging purposes.
-retrydelay=milliseconds
Sets the retry delay upon failover in milliseconds.
-runid=description
Add the given description to all log lines of the scripting service PU operation. This can be useful when multiple PUs are running simultaneously.
-transmittimeout=milliseconds
Sets the transmission timeout in milliseconds.
-keepaliveinterval=milliseconds
Sets the keep-alive interval in milliseconds.
-keepalivetimeout=milliseconds
Sets the keep-alive timeout in milliseconds.

ASAP Protocol Parameters:

-registrar=address:port
Adds a static PR entry into the Registrar Table. It is possible to add multiple entries.
-registrarannouncetimeout=milliseconds
Sets the timeout for ASAP announces via multicast.
-registrarconnecttimeout=milliseconds
Sets the timeout for ASAP connection establishment.
-registrarconnectmaxtrials=trials
Sets the maximum number of ASAP connection establishment trials.
-registrarrequesttimeout=milliseconds
Sets the timeout for ASAP requests.
-registrarresponsetimeout=milliseconds
Sets the timeout for waiting to receive ASAP responses.
-registrarrequestmaxtrials=trials
Sets the maximum number of ASAP request trials.

Component Status Protocol (CSP) Parameters:

-cspinterval=milliseconds
Sets the interval for the CSP status updates in milliseconds. By default, the content of the environment variable CSP_INTERVAL is used. If not defined, no CSP status reports will be sent.
-cspserver=address:port
Sets the address of a CSP monitor server. By default, the content of the environment variable CSP_SERVER is used. If not defined, no CSP status reports will be sent.

Logging Parameters:

-logappend=filename
Write logging output to a file (default is stdout); output will be appended to given file.
-logcolor=on|off
Turns ANSI colorization of the logging output on or off.
-logfile=filename
Write logging output to a file (default is stdout); given file will be overwritten.
-loglevel=0-9
Sets the logging verbosity from 0 (none) to 9 (very verbose). It is recommended to use at least a value of 2 to see possibly important error messages and warnings.

 

ENVIRONMENT

scriptingclient uses the environment variables CSP_SERVER and CSP_INTERVAL to define a CSP server to send reports to in the specified interval.  

DIAGNOSTICS

If loglevel>0, log messages will be printed to stdout or into a specified log file.
