The MIME standard provides the message/partial content type for breaking up messages into smaller parts. This is useful when messages have to traverse networks with size limits. Information is included in each part so that the message can be automatically reassembled once it arrives at its destination.
defragment channel keyword and the defragmentation
channel provide the means to reassemble messages in PMDF. When a
channel is marked
defragment any message/partial messages
queued to the channel will be placed in the defragmentation channel
queue instead. Once all the parts have arrived the message is rebuilt
and sent on its way.
nodefragment disables this special processing.
nodefragment is the default.
A defragment channel must be added to the PMDF configuration file in
order for the
defragment keyword to have any effect. If
your configuration was built by the PMDF configuration utility, then
you should already have such a channel. If not consult Section 28.3.
