Is this object connected to the Central server? This attribute is 1 if a connection has been established, and 0 if no connection is configured, or the connection failed. The server attribute contains the address of the server to connect to. This attribute can be set to 0 to disconnect to server, or to 1 to reconnect to the server if the connection was lost or the initial connection attempt failed. Setting it to 1 when the server attribute is nil is not allowed.
A description string that can be used to identify this Simics instance.
The link objects that have registered in this Simics process. This is a list where each element is a list (id, obj). The id is the global ID number for the link, and obj is the link object in this Simics instance. If the Central client is not connected to a server, a local ID number will be given instead of global ID number.
This attribute controls whether the Central client will automatically try to reconnect to the Central server if the connection is lost, or if it fails to establish an initial connection. A value of 0 means that reconnection is disabled, and a value greater than 0 means that the client will retry after this many seconds.
The Central server to connect to. When set, the client will attempt to connect to the server immediately, but even if the connection fails, setting this attribute won't fail. The connected attribute can be used to check if the connection was successful. Also see the reconnect attribute.
The synchronization state.
|connect||connect to Simics Central|
|disconnect||disconnect from Simics Central|
|info||print information about the device|
|links||list connected links|
The server argument specifies the server to connect to. It is either of the form <addr>[:<port>] if a TCP connection should be used, or a file name if a file socket should be used.
To connect to a server object in the same Simics, use the obj argument instead.
This will make this Simics process standalone, and no longer part of a distributed simulation session.
When connected to a Simics Central, the link object in this list will be distributed.
