amsbenchr(1) Asynchronous Message Service (AMS) benchmarking meter




amsbenchr is a test program that simply subscribes to subject ``bench'' and receives messages published by amsbenchs until all messages in the test - as indicated by the count of remaining messages, in in the first four bytes of each message - have been received. Then it stops receiving messages, calculates and prints performance statistics, and terminates.

amsbenchr will register as an application module in the root unit of the venture identified by application name ``amsdemo'' and authority name ``test''. A configuration server for the local continuum and a registrar for the root unit of that venture (which may both be instantiated in a single amsd daemon task) must be running in order for amsbenchr to commence operations.


amsbenchr failed, for reasons noted in the ion.log file.
amsbenchr terminated normally.


A MIB initialization file with the applicable default name (see amsrc(5)) must be present.


No environment variables apply.


The following diagnostics may be issued to the ion.log log file:
amsbenchr can't register.
amsbenchr failed to register, for reasons noted in the ion.log file.
