! NCP.MEM - Network Control Program help file ! NCP.RNO - DSR source file of the help file ! Updated February 24, 1982. Son VoBa. ! ! The .MEM file should reside in the HLP: directory of the running system. ! ! Each NCP command has an entry in this file. The entries must be ! alphabetically ordered and must be preceeded with an "*" in column 1. ! ! Additional entries may be added to this help file, but with care. * NCP enables an operator to perform network control functions like changing parameters, gathering information, down-line loading, up-line dumping, triggering bootstrap, testing link and network, and zeroing counters. Help for a specific command may be obtained with the HELP command as follows: NCP> HELP keyword [additional parameter] For instance, if you wish additional information about the CANCEL command you would type "HELP CANCEL" *CANCEL CANCEL is used to remove a command from the queue before processing begins. You can check the status of the command with the SHOW QUEUE command. *CLEAR CLEAR is used to clear parameters of an entity from the volatile data base. Additional information available CLEAR CIRCUIT CLEAR EXECUTOR NODE CLEAR LINE CLEAR LOGGING CLEAR NODE *CLEAR CIRCUIT CLEAR CIRCUIT is used to clear the volatile circuit parameters for the circuit(s) identified in the command. *CLEAR EXECUTOR NODE CLEAR EXECUTOR NODE is used to reset the EXECUTOR to the node on which the NCP program is running. Note that this command does not return the executor to the value in the permanent data base. *CLEAR LINE CLEAR LINE is used to clear the volatile line parameters for the line(s) identified in the command. *CLEAR LOGGING CLEAR LOGGING is used to control the logging of events, both the events that will be logged and where they will be logged. *CLEAR NODE CLEAR NODE is used to clear the volatile parameters of the node identified as node-id or set as EXECUTOR. *DEFINE DEFINE is used to modify values in the permanent data base of the identified entity. Additional information available DEFINE CIRCUIT DEFINE LINE DEFINE LOGGING DEFINE NODE *DEFINE CIRCUIT DEFINE CIRCUIT is used to set the permanent circuit parameters for the circuit(s) identified in the command. *DEFINE LINE DEFINE LINE is used to set the permanent line parameters for the line(s) identified in the command. *DEFINE LOGGING DEFINE LOGGING is used to control where the events are logged (event sinks) and which events get logged. *DEFINE NODE DEFINE NODE is used to set the permanent parameters for the node identified as node-id or set as EXECUTOR. *DUMP DUMP is used to store a copy of the target's memory image in a dump file at the host node. *ENTER ENTER is used to enter an alternative command processor for an application type. *EXIT EXIT is used to leave NCP command level and return to the TOPS-20 monitor command level. *HELP HELP allows you to display the function and format of any NCP command. The format is NCP> HELP keyword [additional parameters] where keyword can be any one of the following NCP commands: CANCEL CLEAR DEFINE DUMP ENTER EXIT HELP LIST LOAD LOOP PURGE PUSH RETURN SET SHOW TAKE TELL TRIGGER ZERO *LIST LIST is used to display information from the permanent data base. *LOAD LOAD is used to load the system image file from one node to a remote node in the network *LOOP LOOP is used to request a node level loopback test. The node specified in the command is the node to be connected TO; that is, the node that will loop back the data. This may be the local node or a remote node. *PURGE PURGE is used to clear parameters of an entity from the permanent data base. Additional information available PURGE CIRCUIT PURGE EXECUTOR NODE PURGE LINE PURGE LOGGING PURGE NODE *PURGE CIRCUIT PURGE CIRCUIT is used to clear the permanent circuit parameters for the circuit(s) identified in the command. *PURGE EXECUTOR NODE PURGE EXECUTOR NODE is used to reset the executor in the permanent data base to the local node. *PURGE LINE PURGE LINE is used to clear the permanent line parameters for the line(s) identified in the command. *PURGE LOGGING PURGE LOGGING is used to control the logging of events, both the events that will be logged and where they will be logged. *PURGE NODE PURGE NODE is used to clear the permanent parameters of the node identified as node-id or set as EXECUTOR. *PUSH PUSH is used to leave the NCP command level and enter the TOPS-20 monitor command level. The POP command is used to return to the NCP command level. *RETURN RETURN is used to return to the OPR command level. *SET SET is used to modify values in the volatile data base of the identified entity. Additional information available SET CIRCUIT SET LINE SET LOGGING SET NODE *SET CIRCUIT SET CIRCUIT is used to set the volatile circuit parameters for the circuit(s) identified in the command. *SET LINE SET LINE is used to set the volatile line parameters for the line(s) identified in the command. *SET LOGGING SET LOGGING is used to control where the events are logged (event sinds) and which events get logged. *SET NODE SET NODE is used to set the volatile parameters for the node identified as node-id or set as EXECUTOR. *SHOW SHOW is used to display information from the volatile data base. *TAKE TAKE is used to execute a series of NCP commands from a specified command file. *TELL TELL NODE is used as a prefix to designate the node that is to process the command. The prefix is effective only for the single command that immediately follows. Although the access information is optional, the node specified as node-id may refuse to accept the command. Using the TELL NODE prefix is more efficient than a combination of SET EXECUTOR and CLEAR EXECUTOR commands when only one command is to be given to a node. *TRIGGER TRIGGER is used to attempt to cause the target node (the node to be loaded) to send a load request to the executor. If the load request is sent successfully, the load proceeds automatically. *ZERO ZERO is used to generate a counters zeroed event that causes counters to be logged. The counters are then set to zero. The counters affected are those associated with the specified entity. .KJOB .
