NAME

       ct_rpc - Common Test specific layer on Erlang/OTP rpc.

DESCRIPTION

       Common Test specific layer on Erlang/OTP rpc.

EXPORTS

       app_node(App, Candidates) -> NodeName

              Types:

                 App = atom()
                 Candidates = [NodeName]
                 NodeName = atom()

              From  a  set of candidate nodes determines which of them is running the application
              App. If none of the candidate nodes is running App, the  function  makes  the  test
              case  calling  this  function  to  fail.  This  function  is  the  same  as calling
              app_node(App, Candidates, true).

       app_node(App, Candidates, FailOnBadRPC) -> NodeName

              Types:

                 App = atom()
                 Candidates = [NodeName]
                 NodeName = atom()
                 FailOnBadRPC = true | false

              Same as ct_rpc:app_node/2, except that  argument  FailOnBadRPC  determines  if  the
              search for a candidate node is to stop if badrpc is received at some point.

       app_node(App, Candidates, FailOnBadRPC, Cookie) -> NodeName

              Types:

                 App = atom()
                 Candidates = [NodeName]
                 NodeName = atom()
                 FailOnBadRPC = true | false
                 Cookie = atom()

              Same  as  ct_rpc:app_node/2,  except  that  argument FailOnBadRPC determines if the
              search for a candidate node is to stop if badrpc is received at some point.

              The cookie on the client node is set to Cookie for  this  rpc  operation  (used  to
              match the server node cookie).

       call(Node, Module, Function, Args) -> term() | {badrpc, Reason}

              Same as call(Node, Module, Function, Args, infinity).

       call(Node, Module, Function, Args, TimeOut) -> term() | {badrpc, Reason}

              Types:

                 Node = NodeName | {Fun, FunArgs}
                 Fun = function()
                 FunArgs = term()
                 NodeName = atom()
                 Module = atom()
                 Function = atom()
                 Args = [term()]
                 Reason = timeout | term()

              Evaluates  apply(Module,  Function, Args) on the node Node. Returns either whatever
              Function returns, or {badrpc, Reason} if the remote procedure call fails.  If  Node
              is {Fun, FunArgs}, applying Fun to FunArgs is to return a node name.

       call(Node, Module, Function, Args, TimeOut, Cookie) -> term() | {badrpc, Reason}

              Types:

                 Node = NodeName | {Fun, FunArgs}
                 Fun = function()
                 FunArgs = term()
                 NodeName = atom()
                 Module = atom()
                 Function = atom()
                 Args = [term()]
                 Reason = timeout | term()
                 Cookie = atom()

              Evaluates  apply(Module,  Function, Args) on the node Node. Returns either whatever
              Function returns, or {badrpc, Reason} if the remote procedure call fails.  If  Node
              is {Fun, FunArgs}, applying Fun to FunArgs is to return a node name.

              The  cookie  on  the  client  node is set to Cookie for this rpc operation (used to
              match the server node cookie).

       cast(Node, Module, Function, Args) -> ok

              Types:

                 Node = NodeName | {Fun, FunArgs}
                 Fun = function()
                 FunArgs = term()
                 NodeName = atom()
                 Module = atom()
                 Function = atom()
                 Args = [term()]
                 Reason = timeout | term()

              Evaluates apply(Module, Function, Args) on the node Node. No response is  delivered
              and  the  process  that  makes  the  call  is not suspended until the evaluation is
              completed as in the case of call/3,4. If Node is {Fun, FunArgs},  applying  Fun  to
              FunArgs is to return a node name.

       cast(Node, Module, Function, Args, Cookie) -> ok

              Types:

                 Node = NodeName | {Fun, FunArgs}
                 Fun = function()
                 FunArgs = term()
                 NodeName = atom()
                 Module = atom()
                 Function = atom()
                 Args = [term()]
                 Reason = timeout | term()
                 Cookie = atom()

              Evaluates  apply(Module, Function, Args) on the node Node. No response is delivered
              and the process that makes the call  is  not  suspended  until  the  evaluation  is
              completed  as  in  the case of call/3,4. If Node is {Fun, FunArgs}, applying Fun to
              FunArgs is to return a node name.

              The cookie on the client node is set to Cookie for  this  rpc  operation  (used  to
              match the server node cookie).
