Understanding the Parameters/ Questions

Apr 26, 2011 at 1:47 PM

I'm looking for more information on the run time questions/ parameters used by PAL.  I've only seen a few references on the discussion boards to the TotalMemory and SixtyFourBit parameters, but I'd like to understand more about how these are used.  Are these discussed or documented anywhere?  If PAL is run with incorrect values for one of these parameters (or ALL of them) what is the effect on the resulting analysis?

How and where are these parameters even implemented as cannot see reference to them in the PAL.ps1 code?

Sorry for the delayed response. I've been overwhelmed with my day job for months.

The question variables are implemented in the threshold files. Take a look at the QuickSystemOverview.xml file to see them at the top. This allows threshold file owners to ask questions of the user and use them as variables in the thresholds. In the threshold file, you will see threshold code that reference the question variables.
