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 communications 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 charac- ter 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

DIAGNOSTICS
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)
