Point Bridge



To enable or disable Point Bridge diagnostics.


Numeric values in the following format:





controls the amount/detail of diagnostic output. The value ranges from 0 to 9, where 0 means no debugging output, and 9 means the maximum amount of debugging output.



is a value for NT operating systems that may handle output files in a manner that prohibits multiple process access (as sometimes occurs with NT on DEC Alpha platforms). This value controls approximately how often the output file will actually be closed/re-opened, in seconds. A value of 0 (zero) means that this period closing will not occur.

Any non-zero value of less than 60 will be forced to 60.



provides a number of seconds for an internal timer that rechecks the parameters in the Global Parameters file. This value cannot be less than zero.

The default value is equivalent to five minutes.



initiates a one-shot dump of the Point Bridge internal information regarding the state of points it is servicing. This parameter is only acted upon once when any of the other arguments are changed, and the resulting change leaves LEVEL with a non-zero value.
