Figure 15. Running a Command Routine in the System Console

The System Console displays the results after the command. The first element of the results represents the header of the Mailbox Client with Avalon® Streaming Interface IP response.

The header shows the executed command routine number, the number of expected argument for the command, and an error code if there is an error with the request. In the example, get_temperature_5 is routine number seven (07), it expects one (01) argument, and there is no error.

Note: The System Console does not allow you to run another command routine until it has received a response from the Mailbox Client with Avalon® Streaming Interface IP.
