FILE2SM(1)							  ICI executables							FILE2SM(1)

NAME
file2sm - shared-memory linked list data ingestion test program SYNOPSIS
file2sm fileName DESCRIPTION
file2sm stress-tests shared-memory linked list data ingestion by repeatedly writing all text lines of the file named fileName to a shared- memory linked list that is the root object of a PSM partition named "file2sm". After writing each line to the linked list, file2sm gives a semaphore to indicate that the list is now non-empty. This is mainly for the benefit of the complementary test program sm2file(1). The operation of file2sm is cyclical. After copying all text lines of the source file to the linked list, file2sm appends an EOF line to the linked list, containing the text "*** End of the file ***", and prints a brief performance report: Processing I<lineCount> lines per second. Then it reopens the source file and starts appending the file's text lines to the linked list again. EXIT STATUS
0 file2sm has terminated. FILES
No configuration files are needed. ENVIRONMENT
No environment variables apply. DIAGNOSTICS
Can't attach to shared memory Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Can't manage shared memory. PSM error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. Can't create shared memory list. smlist error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. Can't create semaphore. ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. Can't open input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Can't reopen input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Can't read from input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Ran out of memory. Nominal behavior. sm2file is not extracting data from the linked list quickly enough to prevent it from growing to consume all memory allocated to the test partition. BUGS

FILE2DGR(1)							  DGR executables						       FILE2DGR(1)

NAME
file2dgr - DGR transmission test program SYNOPSIS
file2dgr remoteHostName fileName [nbrOfCycles] DESCRIPTION
file2dgr uses DGR to send nbrOfCycles copies of the text of the file named fileName to the dgr2file process running on the computer identified by remoteHostName. If not specified (or if less than 1), nbrOfCycles defaults to 1. After sending all lines of the file, file2dgr sends a datagram containing an EOF string (the ASCII text "*** End of the file ***") before reopening the file and starting transmission of the next copy. When all copies of the file have been sent, file2dgr prints a performance report: Bytes sent = I<byteCount>, usec elapsed = I<elapsedTime>. Sending I<dataRate> bits per second. EXIT STATUS
0 file2dgr has terminated. FILES
No configuration files are needed. ENVIRONMENT
No environment variables apply. DIAGNOSTICS
Diagnostic messages produced by file2dgr are written to the ION log file ion.log. Can't open dgr service. ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. Can't open input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Can't acquire DGR working memory. ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. Can't reopen input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. Can't read from input file Operating system error. Check errtext, correct problem, and rerun. dgr_send failed. ION system error. Check for earlier diagnostic messages describing the cause of the error; correct problem and rerun. BUGS
