Buffer distribution on the CP1413
How can I change the buffer distribution on the CP1413?
If there is a resources bottleneck on the CP1413, it can be avoided as follows:
- If, for example, you link several clients to
the server, this could lead to resources bottlenecks on the CP1413.
This is particularly true if you can only implement a 64-Kbyte
Shared Memory Segment (with segment D0000). The link to a client
needs at least 4 Kbytes per VC, i.e. for VC6/7 you need a sum
of at least 8 Kbytes per client. On the other hand you only need
about 528 bytes for the other VCs.
You can set the buffer distribution of the CP1413 through entries in the /sinec/data/win/win_conf.dat file. The default setting is as follows:
Excerpt from /sinec/data/win/win_conf.dat:
channel_name=ADM,IHI,MAC,SCP ; IHI = process communication ; SCP = FlexNet
- If you are not operating a Windows network via
the CP1413, then you can remove the "MAC channel" and
assign these resources to the "SCP channel". Likewise,
you can reduce or completely remove the "IHI channel".
Such a configuration looks like this:
channel_name=ADM,IHI,SCP ; IHI = process communication ; SCP = FlexNet
This configuration gives the H1 link more than double the resources.
The win_conf.dat file is recreated with the old values each time LSBSET is run. The changes must then be repeated. If a Windows network is required in addition to the H1 link, you can install it with an additional network card.
