pxRetransmit − Metpx script to retransmit product(s) to a sender
pxRetransmit sender_name [ filepath1 filepath2 filepath3...]
pxRetransmit can be used to resend products to a client. first determine the products within METPX’s database $PXROOT/db/yyyymmdd... to be retransmitted, Then invoke the program followed by the sender’s name and the product filepath.
pxRetransmit does the following :
number of arguments
make sure that the sender queue exists $PXROOT/txq/"sender_name"
verify/create a priority directory named 0
verify/create a datetime subdirectory under directory 0
cp the product file in that sender’s subdirectory
The sender, scans endlessly all directories under $PXROOT/txq/"sender_name" in search of products. For products present under the 0 priority directory, the sender process them without duplicate checking if enabled.
The user must be careful when using pxRetransmit. Any product given to the script will be put in the client’s queue regardless of the whole routing process and the sender’s configuration.
