15.2.1. The Buffer Functions Menu


After configuring the command port, go to the NetLink Main Menu, and type 2 [Enter] to display the Buffer Functions Menu (Figure 15.2.) The Buffer Functions menu offers the following options:

1                     Set Read Session Parameters: Selects Read Session parameters, including the Source Port, Data Type, Start Record, and Record Count. For more information on Read Session Parameters, please refer to Section 15.2.2.

2                     Set Partition: Sets the partition for the user's port according to currently selected Read Session Parameters. If Read Session Parameters have not been redefined, the partition for this port will include all records by default.

3                     Release Partition: Releases the port's partition, allowing other ports to access the formerly partitioned data.

4                     Enter "Read" Session: When this item is selected, NetLink will display a submenu before beginning data release. The following options are available:


a) Start Data Output: To begin, press [Enter].

b) Next Group (^B02): This is used when releasing groups of records as described in Section 15.2.2. For example, if Record Count is set at 10, NetLink will release a group of ten records and then pause. To release the next group, invoke command ^B02.


1         Set "Read" Session Parameters

2         Set Partition

3         Release Partition

4         Enter "Read" Session

5         Erase Partition Data

6         Erase All Data

7         Erase All Data & Clear Alarm Clue Counters

8         Release Remote Partition


Enter Selection, Press <ESC> to return to previous menu ...

c) Re-read Last Data Record (^B06): This option is used when releasing groups of records (Record Count) as described in Section 15.2.2. For example, if Record Count is set at 5, NetLink will release a group of five records and then pause. To resend this group, invoke command ^B06.

d) Exit (^B30): To exit from data release mode and return to the Buffer Functions menu, invoke command ^B30.


•                      When all specified records have been released, the "End Data" message is sent. If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 command is required in order to release the End Data message and complete the data release procedure.

•                      If "Data On ^B01" is disabled, a ^B02 command must be sent in order to begin the data release.


5. Erase Partition Data: Erases all data in the current memory partition. NetLink will display a "Sure ?" prompt; if confirmation is given, all data in the partition will then be erased. Note that this function will not erase records received after the partition was set.

6. Erase All Data: Erases all stored records, including records in partitions owned by other ports. Note that NetLink will not erase records that are currently being read by another port.

7. Erase All Data & Clear Alarm Counters: Erases all stored records (including records in partitions owned by other ports), and resets all Alarm Clue Counters to zero.

Note: Erased call records cannot be recovered.

8. Release Remote Partition: (Supervisor Mode Only) Releases a partition established by another port. Allows access to data assigned to another port. Note that a remote partition cannot be released while another port is reading data from that partition.
