A DZ-11 provides 4 or 8 communication lines with partial modem control, adequate for OpenBSD dialup use.
Normal I/O control parameters for individual lines are managed by ioctl(2) calls. Line speeds may be initiated via the ttys(5) file or stty(1), see tty(4).
dz driver monitors the rate of input
on each board, and switches between the use of character-at-a-time
interrupts and input silos. While the silo is enabled during periods of
high-speed input, the driver polls for input 30 times per second.
On VAXstation systems, lines 0 and 1 are tied to the keyboard and
mouse connectors, which are driven by the
lkms drivers, respectively.
- dz0: silo overflow.
- The 64 character input silo overflowed before it could be serviced. This can happen if a hard error occurs when the CPU is running with elevated priority, as the system will then print a message on the console with interrupts disabled. It is not serious.
