XTCE TM Recorder

Records XTCE TM sequence containers. This service stores the data coming from one or more streams into a table tm. The tm table has a column called pname which stands for packet name. The main task of this service is to assign the value for that column; all the other columns will come directly from the tm stream as provided by the data links.

The pname is a fully qualified name of a matching XTCE container. In the XTCE hierarchy some containers have a flag useAsArchivingPartition (this flag is an Yamcs extension to XTCE). That flag is used to determine the container that will give its name to the packet when saved into the tm table - the name of the lowest level matching container with this flag set is chosen as the pname. If no container matches, then the name of the root container will be used.
