OMI - Implementation Limits

1995 Version of ANSI (Equivalent to Current ISO Version) of Standard

Right Hand Pointer

4.10 Implementation limits and portability

When establishing a session, the agent and server shall negotiate the maximum mutually acceptable sizes of a gvn, its value, an nref, and the messages that contain them. The agent offers its minimum and maximum for each. The server compares these with its own minima and maxima, then replies with the maxima to be used during the session.

Agents and servers must support at least the portability requirements of ANSI/MDC X11.1 and the minimum message sizes they imply. The OMI protocol permits larger limits by negotiation, so implementations that exceed the portability requirements can use longer fields. OMI does have its own rather large limits; clause 5 describes them.
