Database Change Protocol (DCP) is a streaming protocol that significantly reduces latency for display refreshes. With DCP, changes to documents in memory are immediately streamed to be indexed without being written to disk. This allows for faster view consistency that provides more up-to-date data. DCP reduces latency for cross-data center replication (XDCR). The data is replicated from the source cluster to the target cluster before it is written to disk in the source cluster. Uses Profinet`s real-time cyclic protocol. This is used, for example, to assign station names and IP addresses to devices. PROFINET DCP is part of the protocol suite and stands for Discovery and basic Configuration Protocol. It is used by the engineering tool and controller to detect devices, identify device information, and configure device settings such as the name and IP address of PROFINET devices in a PROFINET network. PROFINET DCP is an Ethernet link layer protocol and offers several services.
It is typically used in PROFINET systems to manage network address and name management because each PROFINET device is assigned a unique device name (e.B. “filler-cab1”) based on Domain Name System (DNS) naming conventions and an IP address (e.B. 192.168.1.2). A neighborhood detection protocol. LLDP frames are not routed through managed switches, so they are useful for detecting which neighbor the device is connected to. Database Change Protocol (DCP) is the protocol used to distribute data changes to buckets. PROFINET DCP offers services such as `Identify All`, `Identify`, `Set`, Set – `Flash`, Set – `Reset to Factory`, `Get` and `Hello` as main functions. Some of these services use a multicast message, which means it goes to a group of PN devices, and others use a unicast message that only goes to a specific device. DCP services are integrated into engineering tools, diagnostic tools, controllers and PROFINET devices.
Usually, there is an area in the tools, such as .B. a menu, where DCP functions can be executed. For example, in the tool, you may see an option for “Browse Network” or “Assign Device Name” or “Flash Device LED”, and once the option is selected, DCP messages are sent and received by the configuration tool on the network “under the hood”. This is similar to IT Protocol Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), which resolves an Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) address if your PC knows the IP address of a remote host but not the MAC address. Next, we`ll talk about each service in a little more detail. Finally, we hope it has broadened your knowledge of what PROFINET DCP is and how it is used. It makes network management really easy and is the ideal method for use with PROFINET. If you want to play with PROFINET DCP functions, you can also get our free PROFINET DCP browser from www.profinetcommander.com or participate in one of our upcoming PROFINET Certified Network Engineer courses. Hello Chad, we have a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) based on Java technology. MES make equipment requests (the equipment is a separate machine in the factory) based on the DCP protocol. It is clear that Dynatrace cannot detect Purepath input from devices to MES and other ways. For this reason, we want to instrument DCP methods in Java to see incoming and outgoing transactions (queries) in Dynatrace.
Does it help? Greetings Matthias DCP is an application-level communication protocol. It is designed to integrate real-time models or systems into simulation environments. It allows the exchange of simulation-related information and configuration data using an underlying transport protocol (e.B. UDP, TCP, or CAN). At the same time, the DCP supports the integration of real-time tools and systems from different manufacturers. The DCP is intended to make simulation-based workflows more efficient and reduce integration effort. Clause 5.2.40 “PDU Test Rules” of the standard describes what to archive incoming DCE/RPC messages via UDP. The Functional Mock-Up Interface (FMI) standard defines a zip file container to describe, exchange, and store simulation artifacts using a combination of XML files, static and dynamically linked binaries, and/or C code. FMI specifies a semantics and application programming interface (API) to run (or include such artifacts) in simulation applications. Model exchange (access to a hybrid ODE system) and co-simulation (a solver is part of the artifact) of dynamic models are supported. For example, the IMF for co-simulation defines C functions to initialize a dynamic system, define parameters and input variables, perform a simulation step, and query output values.
`Set / Reset to Factory` (Unicast Service): The `Set / Reset to Factory` service is a special command that can be sent to the device after a user confirmation that sets the device to a PROFINET factory state (default), which is an empty name (“”) and IP settings of 0.0.0.0. Actual port ID, Peer Port ID, Peer Chassis ID, Peer MAC Address, MAU type, Binding State, and more. UDP port numbers are described in Profinet 2.4 Section 184.108.40.206.2.4. Args Maximum: The size of the buffer available for the response At most one diagnostic entry is stored for each combination of ChannelErrortype, extChannelErrorType. Figure 1: Extracting the PROFINET boot sequence using DCP from the I/O controller A DCP “set” can be permanent or temporary. A permanent set (hold-back, by default) means that the name is permanently stored in memory (even on an on/off cycle); temporary means that the name is used until power on and off, and then returns to the default value (e.B. “.”, no name defined). This is a discussion of the possible reasons for adopting a datagram control protocol, which is intended for applications that require the connection semantics of TCP and SCTP (with SCTP`s anti-DoS capabilities) and require special congestion control, but do not want distribution in TCP`s order and reliability semantics. When a large piece of data is sent via UDP on Linux, it is automatically divided into fragments. The maximum transmission unit (MTU) is often 1500 bytes, including the IP header (but not the Ethernet header). An IP header usually has a size of 20 bytes, but some rarely used options would make it larger.
Without IP header options, the largest IP payload would then be 1480 bytes and the largest UDP payload would be 1472 bytes. It seems that for Linux, the largest UDP payload is 1464 bytes before the kernel fragments the message. @Matthias-Versio could you get some information about that?. Set (unicast service): The Set service is used to set the name or IP address of the device. It also has other special features that we will mention next, such as resetting a device to factory settings and flashing the device`s LEDs. 0xC001 = 49153 Ephemeral port for CControl expedition??? Regarding “Advanced Channel Diagnostics” and also “Get” (unicast service): The “Get” service can be used to retrieve information from a device. Depending on the configuration or diagnostic tool, you can read the name, IP address, and manufacturer information, for example. Other information that may be requested, for example, is manufacturer ID, device ID, device type, MAC address, device role (e.B controller/device), etc. Take a look at the following overview to see how each DCP function is typically used with PROFINET: An LLDP frame is sent every 5 seconds from an LLDP device to specify the IP address, etc.
Most of the time, requests (DCE/RPC) are sent from the I/O controller, but CControl requests and some alarm requests are sent from the I/O device. 127: Organization-specific (optional for LLDP. See below.). Has a unique organization code and subtype. IEC 61784 Describes several fieldbuses, e.B. Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus and Profinet. Profinet has a mechanism (which is part of DCE/RPC via UDP) to divide large frames (for boot messages) into smaller fragments. Operating systems, for example Linux, have a competing mechanism for dividing frames into fragments. A Profinet device also receives LLDP frames.
It uses the chassis ID and frame ID of its neighbor`s frame to set the alias name. 0x8001 (32769) Interface Port 1 (usually referred to as X1 P1) 1: MAC/PHY configuration status. Displays auto-negotiation support and supported speeds. Also MAU type. Maximum number: In requests, these are the same values as the Args maximum. For responses, this is the args maximum of the request. We made it easy for ourselves and set a good entry point for instrumentation with the developers. It worked very well and after that, as always, it`s easy in Dynatrace. There is no Args Maximum field in the responses.
Instead, there is a state field with these subfields: The DCP was designed with IMF compatibility in mind.. .
