For example, if DEFSSRV contains the default Extractor server entry:
…and UDEFSSRV contains the following entries;
* This will be IRADICOL.EXE for Windows, IRADICOL for UNIX and IREXTCOL for HPE NonStop.
…and the EXTRACTOR Configuration file contains the following entries:
Then there are three Extractor servers running, FSCOL, FSCOL2 and FSCOL3.
FSCOL processes the following extractions:
The script file WVLOG.EXT is run to extract data from the WVLOG.TXT log file every 15 seconds, with a circular record buffer containing 50 records. Hence once 50 records are generated, there will always be 50 records available, with new records replacing old records. This would be a typical configuration for log files, as it allows a limited history of log entries to be visible on a display to provide context for newer log entries.
The script file ALLFIELD.EXT is run to extract data from the DATA.TXT file whenever requested. That is, if a Display is started that uses the record generated by ALLFIELD.EXT, then that script is run on the Display interval.
FSCOL2 processes the following extractions:
The script file NETSTAT.EXT is run to execute the NETSTAT -NA command every 10 seconds and process its output (which is the standard output, i.e. it is normally directed to the terminal when run interactively from a shell).
FSCOL3 processes the following extractions:
The script file REPORTER.EXT is run to execute the GENREPORT command every half-hour. The GENREPORT command is assumed to create a report in the file D:\APPLIC\REPORT.OUT and this is the file processed by the Extractor.
