scriptingclient — RSerPool Client (PU) for the Scripting service
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]
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.
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.
scriptingclient uses the environment variables CSP_SERVER and CSP_INTERVAL to define a CSP server to send reports to in the specified interval.
If loglevel>0, log messages will be printed to stdout or into a specified log file.
