readpipe Utility

SQL Server 2000

The readpipe utility tests the integrity of the network Named Pipe services, in conjunction with makepipe.

Syntax

readpipe /Sserver_name /Dstring [/n] [/q] [/w] [/t] [/p pipe_name] [/h]

Arguments

/Sserver_name

Is the name of a default instance of Microsoft® SQL Server™ on which you just ran makepipe. readpipe does not support named instances of SQL Server 2000. There are no spaces between /S and server_name.

/Dstring

Is a test character string. There are no spaces between /D and string.

/n

Specifies the number of iterations.

/q

Queries for incoming data (polling). Without /q, readpipe reads the pipe and waits for data.

/w

Specifies the wait time, in seconds, to pause while polling. The default is 0.

/t

Asks for Transact-SQL named pipes. This option overrides polling.

/p pipe_name

Is the name of the pipe. The default pipe_name is abc.

/h

Displays usage.
