4.3. Remote Administration

This section provides documentation on Replay Service remote administration. A control client (such as RTI Admin Console) can use this interface to remotely control a Replay Service.


Replay Service remote administration is based on the RTI Remote Administration Platform described in Section 6.2. Please refer to that manual for a detailed discussion on the workings of remote administration in Replay Service.

Below you will find an API reference for all the supported operations.

4.3.1. Enabling Remote Administration

By default, remote administration is disabled in Replay Service.

To enable remote administration you can use the <administration> XML tag (see Section 4.2) or the -remoteAdministrationDomainId command-line parameter (see Section 4.1). Both of these methods enable remote administration and set the domain ID for remote communication.

4.3.2. Available Service Resources

Table 4.18 lists the public resources specific to Replay Service. Each resource identifier is expressed as a hierarchical sequence of identifiers, including parent and target resources. (See Section for details.)

In the table below, the elements (rs), and (st) refer to the name of an entity of the corresponding class as specified in the configuration in the name attribute. For example, in the following configuration:

<replay_service name="MyReplay">...</replay_service>

The resource identifier is:


In the table, the resource identifier is written as /replay_service/(rs), where (rs) is the service name. This nomenclature is used in the table to give you an idea of the structure of the resource identifiers. For actual (example) resource identifier names, see the example section that follows.
