Patch synthetic scripts

It’s now possible to online patch synthetic scripts from TCL, via the uTOPE command “patchscript”. Several patch commands were already available: patchcurveused (fixed or dynamically selectable), patchlimits, patchnumericalcurve, patchtextualcurve, patchpolynomialcurve, patchlogarithmiccurve. This is now one step closer to completing the list of possible online MIB patches.

The online help and manuals have been updated to reflect these commands.
Online patching allows you to change the MIB after it has been loaded. The online patch is effective in memory, and does not change the MIB files.

It’s now possible to patch the synthetic parameter script online. These commands can be useful if you find that the MIB contained a small mistake and you want to change it without restarting. Or another situation can be that you want to keep your MIB as-is, but for a specific test or simulation setup, you want to modify the MIB temporarily.

This brings the list of patch statements to:
  • patchcurveused
  • patchimit
  • patchnumericalcurve
  • patchtextualcurve
  • patchpolynomialcurve
  • patchlogarhithmiccurve
  • patchscript

The online help and manuals have been updated to reflect these commands.

Note that TSC also has another unique feature Drop Database
