NAME
dh - DH-11/DM-11 communications multiplexer SYNOPSIS
/sys/conf/SYSTEM: NDH dh_units # DH11; NDH is in units of boards (16 each) NDM dm_units # DM11; NDM is in units of boards (16 each) /etc/dtab: #Name Unit# Addr Vector Br Handler(s) # Comments dm ? 170500 310 4 dmintr # dm11 dh modem control dh ? 160020 320 5 dhrint dhxint # dh11 terminal mux major device number(s): raw: 3 minor device encoding: bits 0017 specify line on DH unit bits 0060 specify DH unit bit 0100 specify RTS/CTS (``hardware'') flowcontrol bit 0200 specifies non-blocking open (``CD always on'') DESCRIPTION
A dh-11 provides 16 communication lines; dm-11's may be optionally paired with dh-11's to provide modem control for the lines. If there are fewer dm-11's than dh-11's, the dm-11's are assumed to be paired with the first dm_units dh-11's. Each line attached to the DH-11 communications multiplexer behaves as described in tty(4). Input and output for each line may indepen- dently be set to run at any of 16 speeds; see tty(4) for the encoding. Bit 0200 of the minor device number for DH lines may be set to say that a line is not properly connected, and that the line should be treated as hard-wired with carrier always present. Thus creating the special character device node "3, 130" via mknod /dev/ttyh2 c 3 130 would cause line ttyh2 to be treated in this way. Bit 0100 of the minor device number enables RTS/CTS (also called ``hardware'') flow con- trol. It is enabled by adding 64 to the minor device number: mknod /dev/ttyh2 c 3 194 The dh driver monitors the rate of input on each board, and switches between the use of character-at-a-time interrupts and input silos. While the silo is enabled during periods of high-speed input, the driver polls for input 30 times per second. FILES

dh%d NXM. No response from UNIBUS on a dma transfer within a timeout period. This has never been observed on a PDP-11 and is a carryover from the VAX driver when it was ported. It is not serious. dh%d %d overruns. The character input silo overflowed before it could be serviced. This message is only printed at line close time. It is not serious but does indicate that the system was not able to keep up with the data flow. 3rd Berkeley Distribution May 31, 1997 DH(4)

NAME
dz - DZ-11 communications multiplexer SYNOPSIS
/sys/conf/SYSTEM: NDZ dz_units # DZ11; NDZ is in units of boards (8 each) /etc/dtab: #Name Unit# Addr Vector Br Handler(s) # Comments dz ? 160100 310 5 dzrint dzdma # dz11 terminal mux major device number: raw: 2 minor device encoding: bits 0007 specify line on DZ unit bits 0170 specify DZ unit bit 0200 specifies non-blocking open (``CD always on'') DESCRIPTION
A DZ11 provides 8 communication lines with partial modem control, adequate for UNIX dialup use. Each line attached to the DZ11 communica- tions multiplexer behaves as described in tty(4) and may be set to run at any of 16 speeds; see tty(4) for the encoding. Bit 0200 of the minor device number for DZ lines may be set to say that a line is not properly connected, and that the line should be treated as hard-wired with carrier always present. Thus creating the special character device node "2, 130" via mknod /dev/tty02 c 2 130 would cause line tty02 to be treated in this way. The dz driver monitors the rate of input on each board, and switches between the use of character-at-a-time interrupts and input silos. While the silo is enabled during periods of high-speed input, the driver polls for input 30 times per second. FILES

dz%d: silo overflow. The 64 character input silo overflowed before it could be serviced. This can happen if a hard error occurs when the CPU is running with elevated priority, as the system will then print a message on the console with interrupts disabled. It is not serious. 3rd Berkeley Distribution January 28, 1988 DZ(4)
