Nonsending boardreader FHiCL broken
In $ARTDAQ_DAQINTERFACE_DIR/simple_test_config/subconfigs, there are FHiCL documents meant to configure ToySimulators which don't send fragments. They contain the line:
...which is how to communicate to DAQInterface that it should expect a number of fragments other that "1" per event from a boardreader.
It also used to be the case that setting this parameter would actually cause artdaq-demo's ToySimulator to send as many fragments as were specified. However, with artdaq-demo commit 9de984abba56e0b80e72717783dc811f0bc47cd0 from November 30, 2018, this no longer appears to be the case. The nonsending boardreader FHiCL documents should be changed accordingly.

Resolved with commit 9a0f0afe32f3c6baf7680dcb435a56fa842a1621 on feature/issue24053_nonsending_boardreaders. The change is quite simple; since ToySimulator no longer uses generated_fragments_per_event to determine how many fragments to send but instead uses the fragment_ids list, I've added "fragment_ids: " to the FHiCL.
In order to test this, before launching DAQInterface but after setting up the DAQInterface environment you'll want to set
and then you'll want to make sure that "subconfigs/component_special" is part of your subconfig list (see Issue #21226 for more on subconfig lists). E.g., I ran
just_do_it.sh ./boot.txt 0 --config "subconfigs/component_nonsending subconfigs/component_push subconfigs/component_special subconfigs/dataloggers subconfigs/dispatchers subconfigs/eventbuilders subconfigs/metrics_disabled subconfigs/routingmaster_disabled" --comps "component01 component02 component03 component04 component05 component06 component2001 component2002 component2003"
