Archive Agent

Invoking the application:

archive_agent [-d db] [-f control] [-h] [-i fis]

The archive_agent application runs in cooperation with archive_server. The agent polls a queue which is being filled by the archive_server and performs tasks on behalf of archive_server. The user must run a separate copy of archive_agent for each archive system on the machine. The allows each application to poll one queue and only carry out the tasks for a single archive system.

The archive_agent supports one set of jobs. It examines storage commitment requests received by archive_server and determines if the image archive has received the images which are being requested for storage commitment. The archive_agent makes the determination of such and initiates a separate DICOM association to inform the calling application of the status of its commitment request.
