ipsim This program is used to simulate an data feed. It reads a single archive log and sends files at regular intervals. When it reaches the end of the file, it restarts. Each new file is sent to the queue spool/2brouted for program IPROUTE to process as a standard input. It can be used to imitate either an incoming wire service or an outgoing service. The files created are exactly as the original - both text and header. The archive file is held in log/data and has the format : (JulianDate_ArchiveName) Note that unix belives Jan1 is day 0 so remember to subtract one from your total. Or in IP, the MUI, a 'j' command will give you today's date (j -2, for 2days before). The files can either be sent out at regular fixed intervals - which is the default (every 10 secs) - or can be sent at the same pace as they arrived and where stored in the Archive log. The latter is triggered by the '-t' input switch which can be : -t 0 : Start sending all the files as from midnight -t -1 : Start sending as though the time was now ie if it is 14:35, Send all files from 14:35 -t 21:35 : Start sending as though the time was 21:35 This option also cycles through to the next Archive at midnight or stops if none found. Input Parameters : Mandatory : -n : name of log file default: none -d : julian date of log file default: none Optional : -o : output queue in spool default: 2brouted -q : queue where the log files reside default: log/data -l : log as each file is sent default: no -L : log and display on the screen default: no -i : interval between sending files default: 10 secs -r : flag these files as resends default: no -s : single shot - stop at end of log file default: loop -t : Start Time. This option forces the program to use the Time of Arrival for each file in the Archive from the Start Time. Ie wait between files is the difference between incoming times. This overrides the 'interval'. default: no -T : Start Time. Start the Archive from this time but still use the interval time. default: from beginning -v : print version no and exit (copyright) 2021 and previous years FingerPost Ltd.
