  • Last week:
    • AGW:
      • oac-dev:oacserver to lab UMAC communications error occurring within oacserver:startPmacsendRPCServer():pmacsendcommand_1_svc():getDPRAMWord():PmacGetMem(), apparently during either socket send() or recv().
      • Per PK suggestion, successfully queried the lab UMAC from oac-dev using the TCS ‘pmac’ binary client (from tcs/tcs/pmac/pmac.cpp), eliminating an underlying OS, hardware, or UMAC-side communications bug as an issue in testing.
      • Attempted to attach gdb to startPmacsendRPCServer thread to debug socket issue. Set up for breakpoint and determination of thread ID wasn’t quite there.
