ci_attr

Purpose:

Obtain the CI attributes for a CI driver.

Enter:

ci_attr [filename] [index]

Where:

filename

Optional. Specify the filename to access and obtain the CI attributes for a CI driver. The default filename is ‘/specs/ci_attr.nnn’ where nnn is the test cell number.

index

Optional. Specify the index into the CI Device Attributes shared memory to use and place the attribute information read from ‘filename’. The default is to use the¬†next unused block in the shared memory.

Example:

ci_attr
The above accesses the CI attributes specified in the file /specs/ci_attr.nnn and places them in the 1st unused block in the shared memory for CI attributes. nnn is the test cell number associated with the node executing the command.

ci_attr /specs/ci_attr.fast 2
The above accesses the CI attributes specified in the file /specs/ci_attr.fast and places them in the 2nd block in the shared memory for CI attributes

Notes:

This command should be executed via the CyFlex startup script (go.scp). Even though they are not available or specified, there are an equal number of FI channels allocated along with the CI channels.
