At the startup of the Fabasoft Folio COO Service an event log entry is generated, which shows the status of the multicast server.
In this case the “cache and UDP multicast protocol” is enabled, the used multicast address is 188.8.131.52 and the multicast port is 1190.
If the “cache and UDP multicast protocol” is disabled, an entry in the event log is created too when starting the Fabasoft Folio COO Service.
Also the client (Fabasoft Folio Kernel) writes an entry in the event log after a successful start.
UDP package losses (modification notices and heartbeats) are written as warning t the event log.
Note: A package loss does not lead to a data loss or inconsistency. It is simply impossible to perform optimized cache behavior.
For analyzing the network traffic, a tool like “Wireshark” () can be used.
With an appropriate filter, all UDP packages of a certain address (e.g. IP address of the server) can be filtered in a certain area.
Example: ip.addr == 192.168.100.83 and udp.port == 1190
This filter restricts to UDP packages with the sender IP address 192.168.100.83 and the destination port 1190.
