17.4. Command Summary

 

^B00 Set/Reset Memory Partition

Sets or releases the memory partition for your command port.

Notes:

•                      If this command does not include an argument, the partition will be set to include all data by default.

•                      The Release partition argument (R) cannot be combined with other arguments.

•                      The ^B00 command line can specify two source ports (e.g., ^B00,PA,PI), but cannot specify two data types.

•                      Square brackets are not included in the command line. They are shown here to indicate an option.

 

^B00 Set/Reset Memory Partition (Continued)

Command ^B00 uses one of the following formats:

^B00[,type][,source] [Enter] or ^B00[,R] [Enter]

Where: ,type Data Type:  Offers the following options: ,Dor ,STD Standard (Non-Alarm) Records,A1or ,A Records that match Alarm Filter 1 ,A2 Records that match Alarm Filter 2 ,ALM Include All Alarm Records (Not Specified) Include all data

,source Source Port:  Offers the following options: ,PA Records received via the Serial PBX Port ,PI Records received via the PBX IP Port (Not Specified) Records from both ports

,R Release Data Partition: The "R" option cannot be combined with other ^B00 arguments.

Examples:

^B00,D Set partition to include all records that did not match an Alarm Clue, regardless of Input Port that received them.

^B00,A1,PI Include records that match Alarm Filter 1, and were received via the PBX IP Port.

^B00,R Release the current data partition.

Corresponding Menu Function:  Buffer Functions, Items 2 and 3.

^B01 Enter Data Release Mode

Releases data collected from the PBX Ports.

Notes:

•                      When data is released in groups of "n" records (e.g., ^B01,30), command ^B02 is sent to release the next group.

•                      To exit Data Release Mode and return to command mode, type ^B30[Enter].

•                      If the XON/XOFF function is enabled at the appropriate port, NetLink II will respond to XON/XOFF flow control codes during data release mode.

•                      If "Data on ^B01" is disabled, and ^B01,n is invoked to release data in groups of "n" records, a ^B02 is required in order to release the first group.

•                      If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the End Data message.

 

Command Options:

When Command ^B01 is invoked, the following format is used:

^B01[,type][,source][@n][,n] [Enter]

Where:

,type Data Type:  Offers the following options: ,Dor ,STD Standard (Non-Alarm) Records.,Aor ,A1 Records for Alarm Filter 1. ,A2 Records for Alarm Filter 2. ,ALM Records for both Alarm Filters. ,"clue" Records for clue only.  The clue

name must be enclosed in quotes.

,source Source Port:  Offers the following options: ,PA Records received via the Serial PBX Port. ,PI Records received via the PBX IP Port.

@n Offset: Data release starts with the "nth" record. For example, ^B01@50will start with the 50th record. If a negative offset value is entered, NetLink II will determine the starting point by counting backwards from the end of the current partition.

,n Count: Releases records in groups of "n", where n is a positive, whole number.

Notes:

•                      If both Alarm Filters include a clue with the same name, the command must specify the desired filter.  For example, if Alarm Filters 1 and 2 both include a clue named TEST, to retrieve data from filter 1, the command line would read ^B01,A1,"TEST".

•                      Each command option is preceded by a comma, with the exception of the Offset option (@n). This option is preceded by the "@" character.  Do not enter a comma before the @ character.

•                      Square brackets are not included in the command line. They are shown here to indicate an option.

 

Options can also be combined. For example, ^B01,"clue",nwill release records for clue in groups of nrecords.

Corresponding Menu Function: Main Menu, Item 2.

Notes:

•                      If "Data on ^B01" is disabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the first group of records.

•                      If "Hold End Data" is enabled, a ^B02 is required in order to release the End Data message.
