SYSRPC CSMASS direct command
is used to calculate the buffer size RPC calls without interface objects
require for sending data from the client to the server or vice versa. The
indication of the size helps you configure the middleware layer used; for
example, the Broker attribute file when EntireX Broker is used.
If desired, you can also perform size calculations for interface objects, even though sizes are already calculated when the interface objects are generated.
SYSRPC CSMASS can be used in
online or batch mode.
This section contains information on:
You can enter the command
SYSRPC CSMASS at
any Natural command prompt for calculating size requirements online.
The section below contains information on:
The syntax that applies to the
direct command is illustrated in the diagram below:
SYSRPC CSMASS direct command produces a
report that indicates the send and receive length requirements of the
subprograms (objects) specified with the command as shown in the following
Page 1 2018-01-17 15:54:12 SYSRPC - Calculation of Buffer Sizes for RPC Without Interface Objects Calculation Criteria: Object name or range: RPC* Compression: 1 Calculation Results (sizes in bytes): Number of objects found: 8 Maximum send length: 200228 Maximum receive length: 1024192 Object Type Send Length Receive Length Message -------- ---- -------------- -------------- -------------- RPCCALL1 N 209 202 RPCCALL2 N 219 240 Compression=2 RPCCALL3 N 204 193 MORE
The report is organized in three sections, which contain the following information:
The criteria based on which the calculation was made: a single object name or a range of names (here:
RPC*) and the compression (here:
Calculation Results (sizes in bytes):
The number of objects selected for the size calculation.
The maximum buffer sizes all selected objects require for sending and receiving data from the client.
The name and type (here:
N for type subprogram) of each
object selected for the calculation. The buffer sizes each object requires for
sending (Send Length) and receiving (Receive
Length) data from the client. A possible comment on each object
calculation in the Message column. In the example above,
Compression=2 indicates that object
RPCCALL2 was not
calculated with Compression 1 as requested in the command. The object list is
sorted in alphabetical order of object names.
If the MORE prompt appears, choose ENTER to scroll to the end of the report.
If the size calculation fails for single or multiple objects, the report shows the number of objects affected and appropriate error messages.
You can specify the objects (subprograms) to be selected for size calculation and the type of compression to be used:
You can specify an object name or a range of names. If you do not specify a name or a range of names, the size of all subprograms contained in the current library will be calculated.
Valid name specifications are described below where value is any combination of one or more alphanumeric characters:
This is the default setting.
|value||A subprogram with a name equal to value.|
|value*||All subprograms with names that start with value.|
|value<||All subprograms with names less than or equal to value|
|value>||All subprograms with names greater than or equal to value.|
You can specify any of the following compression types:
2. The specification of compression is optional.
The default type used for interface object generation is
