On startup, samtac2ew reads the configuration file named on the command line. Commands in this file set all the parameters used for configuring the Earthworm samtac2ew module. In the control file, lines may begin with a valid samtac2ew command (listed below) or with one of 2 special characters:
Command names must be typed in the control file exactly as shown in this document (upper/lower case matters!). Blank lines are also permitted in the control file.# marks the line as a comment (example: # This is a comment).
@ allows control files to be nested; one control file can be
accessed from another with the command "@" followed by
a string representing the path name of the next control file
Below are the commands recognized by samtac2ew, grouped by the function they influence. Some of the commands are required, as noted. They may be specified in any order in the control file, with the exception of the SAMTAC-802U communications mode settings: these must be listed in the order shown here.
Earthworm system setup: ModuleId required RingName required LogFile required HeartbeatInt required DeviceID required Debug optional The two commands for any ONE of the two communication modes: SAMTAC communication parameters: TCP mode TcpAddr required TcpPort required SAMTAC communication parameters: Windows COM port ComPort required Speed required SAMTAC2EW buffer and timing parameters: CommTimeout optional SAMTAC configuration, status and alarm parameters: InfoSCNL required SOH_int optional
In the following section, all configuration file commands are listed in alphabetical order. Listed along with the command (bold-type) are its arguments (in red), the name of the subroutine that processes the command, and the function within the module that the command influences. A detailed description of the command and is also given. Default values and example commands are listed after each command description.
Sets the communication timeout to n milliseconds. If unable to communicate with SAMTAC for n milliseconds, retry socket or terminate. Default: 5000 (milliseconds)
Sets the com port number to n.
Sets the debug level: 0 or commented out for no debug logging; 1 - 4 for increasing verbosity. Default: no debug output.
Sets DeviceID(serial) of the SAMTAC. This will be used to identify data coming from the SAMTAC and should match Sys values from SCNL.
Beat the samtac2ew heart every beat seconds.
InfoSCNL System Channel S C N L
This command is used to define how samtac2ew maps a System and Channel Number to a Station Channel Name. It is also used as a channel selector as only those streams specified get passed on to the Earthworm Wave Ring. This forces the trace buf type to be of type TRACEBUF2. System is for the SAMTAC System ID name, Channel is for the SAMTAC channel number, S is for station name (5 chars), C is for channel identifier (3 chars), N is for network code (2 chars), and L is for location code (2 chars).# Sys Channel S C N L InfoSCNL 21 1 ISTI HHZ CI 00 InfoSCNL 21 2 ISTI HHN CI 00 InfoSCNL 21 3 ISTI HHE CI 00
If 0, don't output to logfile; if 1, do if 2, log to module log but not stderr/stdout
Sets the module id for labeling all outgoing messages. mod_id is a character string (valid strings are listed in earthworm.d) that relates (in earthworm.d) to a unique single-byte number.
This is the ring into which the waveforms and messages are sent.
The interval in seconds between State of Health packets. Default in 300 seconds(5 minutes)
Connect to the SAMTAC-802U at the Speed rate specified. To use this input mode, the ComPort directive must also be used. The baud rates are the standard allowable rates : 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, and 115200.
TcpAddr IP address
Connect to the SAMTAC-802U at the ip address IP address. Note that the TcpPort is also required.
Connect to the SAMTAC-802U at the ip address specified and this port number. Note that the TcpAddr is also required for this directive. TcpPort defaults to 5001 for the SAMTAC-802U.
