Wait until hardware SIO scan has completed.


wait_on_hw_sio_scan [‑timeout <arg>] [‑quiet] [‑verbose] <hw_sio_scans>...


Name Description
[-timeout] Timeout in minutes. Decimal value allowed Default: No timeout
[-quiet] Ignore command errors
[-verbose] Suspend message limits during command execution
<hw_sio_scans> List of hardware SIO scan objects.




Suspend a Tcl script or Tcl command processing until the specified serial I/O analyzer scan is complete.

This command is used after the run_hw_sio_scan command to pause Tcl processing to wait for the scan to complete. When the wait_on_sio_scan command returns, the Tcl command or script processing can continue.

This command operates silently, returning nothing if successful, or returning an error if it fails.


-timeout <arg> - (Optional) Wait for this period of time for the serial I/O analyzer scan to complete. If the timeout interval is reached, the wait command is terminated.

-quiet - (Optional) Execute the command quietly, returning no messages from the command. The command also returns TCL_OK regardless of any errors encountered during execution.
Note: Any errors encountered on the command-line, while launching the command, will be returned. Only errors occurring inside the command will be trapped.
-verbose - (Optional) Temporarily override any message limits and return all messages from this command.
Note: Message limits can be defined with the set_msg_config command.

<hw_sio_scans> - (Required) Specify one or more hw_sio_scan objects to wait on. The hw_sio_scan must be specified as an object as returned by the create_hw_sio_scan or get_hw_sio_scans commands.


The following example waits for the serial I/O analyzer scan to complete:

run_hw_sio_scan [lindex [get_hw_sio_scans {SCAN_0}] 0]
wait_on_hw_sio_scan [lindex [get_hw_sio_scans {SCAN_0}] 0]
