1232   EntryID needs clarification

This tissue has following status: green

Created: 28 Mar 2014



Clause: 17


Category: Issue may impact interoperability of implementations of Edition 2

Issue: 7-2 is not clear on the definition of Entry or EntryID.

In particular, Table 38 confuses Report and Segment.

Proposal: Add text in

Entry - a set of values added to an event buffer in response to one event notification (including GI or integrity report).

EntryID - a unique identifier for each entry.

Reports with the same sequence number but different subsequence numbers shall use the same EntryID

EntryData[1..n] should be something like EntryData[m..n] to indicate that the entry data is split across segments and the first data unit will not be present in each segment.


17.1 should reflect the definitions above as they apply to log also.

Table 38 describes a transmission unit (segment), not a report. EntryData[1..n] should be EntryData[m..n]. It may be necessary to create a second table showing the format of a segment separately from a complete report.
