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 the application  the  function  will
              make the test case calling this function 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 app_node/2 only the FailOnBadRPC argument will determine if the search  for
              a candidate node should stop or not 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 app_node/2 only the FailOnBadRPC argument will determine if the search for
              a candidate node should stop or not if badrpc is received at some point. The cookie
              on  the  client node will be set to Cookie for this rpc operation (use 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 whatever Function
              returns  or  {badrpc,  Reason} if the remote procedure call fails. If Node is {Fun,
              FunArgs} applying Fun to FunArgs should 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 whatever Function
              returns  or  {badrpc,  Reason} if the remote procedure call fails. If Node is {Fun,
              FunArgs} applying Fun to FunArgs should return a  node  name.  The  cookie  on  the
              client  node  will be set to Cookie for this rpc operation (use 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  which  makes  the  call is not suspended until the evaluation is
              compleated as in the case of call/[3,4]. If Node is {Fun, FunArgs} applying Fun  to
              FunArgs should 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 which makes the call is  not  suspended  until  the  evaluation  is
              compleated  as in the case of call/[3,4]. If Node is {Fun, FunArgs} applying Fun to
              FunArgs should return a node name. The cookie on the client node  will  be  set  to
              Cookie for this rpc operation (use to match the server node cookie).
