How to avoid flooding kicks - 18/09/19 07:14 AM

Hi Everyone,

I have a bot that can output a lot of data and at times and it must hit the SENDQ max and the bot is killed.

Is there a way to buffer the output to avoid this. I have tried using a timer to actually do the output but I still get kicked. Maybe there is another way to do this, I am not sure.

Here is my sample code:
Code
alias Test {
    var %data = The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog
    var %count = 500
    var %index = 1

    if ($hget(buffer.data)) hfree buffer.data
    hmake buffer.data 1

    clear
    while (%index <= %count) {
        hadd buffer.data %index %data
        inc %index
    }
    noop $OutputBuffer(buffer.data, #chill)
}

alias OutputBuffer {
    set %OutputBuffer.Count $hget($1, 0).item
    set %OutputBuffer.Bytes 0

    TimedOutput $1 $2
    .timerOutput -q 0 2 TimedOutput $1 $2
}

alias TimedOutput {
    while (%OutputBuffer.Count > 0) {
        var %data = $hget($1, %OutputBuffer.Count).data -> %OutputBuffer.Bytes
        %OutputBuffer.Bytes = $calc(%OutputBuffer.Bytes + $len(%data))
        msg $2 %data
        dec %OutputBuffer.Count
        if (%OutputBuffer.Bytes > 511) {
            set %OutputBuffer.Bytes 0
            return
        }
        if (%OutputBuffer.Count < 1) .timerOutput -q off
    }
}


Hopefully someone has encountered this before and has a solution.

Oh, I just noticed, this should probably be outside the while loop
Code
if (%OutputBuffer.Count < 1) .timerOutput -q off

I am unfamiliar with the /timer -q switch.

My bad, got languages mixed up. Delete the -q.
