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.
