Introduction

This topic contains information on all messages issued by SoftSpy.

Terminal message format

Most SoftSpy messages are displayed on the user's terminal. A few are issued to the audit trail.

Messages have the following general format:

SPY.nnn : message type : message text

where:

SPY.nnn is the message identifier. The word SPY indicates that the message is a SoftSpy message, and nnn is the SoftSpy message number. The message identifier is not present for errors issued using the SoftSpy ERROR command.

message type is Error, Warning, or Bug. The absence of a message type indicates the message is an informational message.

message text is a brief explanation of the situation that caused the message to be issued. A complete description of the cause of each message, and any corrective action that should be taken, is given in this topic. The messages are documented in numerical order. A gap in the numeric sequence indicates an unused message number.

Message documentation format

SoftSpy messages are documented in the following format:

Message Number The number of the SoftSpy message.
Message Type The message type is either Bug, Error, Informational, or Warning.
Message Text The text of the message as it appears on the user's terminal, except for generic terms, such as a keyword, for which SoftSpy substitutes the appropriate value.

Response The required response, an indication to notify the SoftSpy Administrator, or an indication that no response is required.
