SecureCRT: Script ignores delay and WaitForString commands

Maybe you can help me with my problem: I have a set of commands which has to be sent to devices managed by me, there are lot of commands, which have to be sent just command-by-command, but not too fast, because these commands put heavy load for the system and effect of too fast sending is a crash of it.
So I did it simple: after every command is wait for prompt, lot of additional delay commands, longer delays between block of commands - final script has more than 400 lines, but it seemed to be simple task to do.
Unfortunately it isn't: from my PC script is working fine, slow as expected, all delays are included etc. more less to half of it. And, suddenly all the rest of commands are send in one second, without any delays (included in code!) or waitfor prompt, as a result it kills my device
Interesting is that it is connected to my PC only, my colleague has the same version of SecureCRT and from his PC the same script is working fine.

My script:
Code:
#$language = "VBScript"
#$interface = "1.0"


crt.Screen.Synchronous = True


Sub Main
	
	If crt.Session.Connected <> True then
		MsgBox "Please login to NE first!" 		
		Exit Sub
	end if


	If crt.Session.Logging <> True then
		MsgBox "Please enable logging of session" 
		Exit Sub
	end if
	
	crt.Screen.Send chr(13)
	Dim nResult
	nResult = crt.Screen.WaitForString("OLT", 3)
	If nResult = 0 Then
		MsgBox "No OLT> or OLT# prompt detected!" & "Please login to the GPON card first"
		Exit Sub
	End If 
	
	Dim Sleeptime 'delay between blocks of commands
	Sleeptime = 10
	SecondSleepTime = 1000
	LongSleepTime = 15000
	
	crt.Screen.Send chr(13)

Hi jarek.p,

It is not recommended to rely on Sleep() calls to pace your script. For every Send(), you should have a corresponding WaitForString().

You might look at the script posted here which is designed to pace the sending of commands to match what the device can handle.

Hi,

Thx for answer but have a look, I have included WaitForString() after near every "Send" command, Sleep was added for reach additional time between commands. But question is why it is ignored (WaitForString together with sleep) in the second half of code. Is any limitation for them?

Is any limitation for them?
No, there is no limitation.

Having a WaitForString() for nearly every Send() is often not quite good enough!

I see five, eight, even 14 Send() calls in a row in various places in the script. As for the eight Send() calls at the very end of the script, did you know Send() has an optional parameter to send just to the screen?



What version of SecureCRT are you using?

But question is why it is ignored (WaitForString together with sleep) in the second half of code
What is "second half of code"? You've not specifically indicated where it gets out of sync but you already have my best answer.

Having multiple Send() calls without a corresponding WaitForString() causes scripts to get out of sync.

Ok, clear. I was just sure that I don't need to wait for prompt after every command contains sending a comment only -> that was a reason of my "near".

But it was a reason, I edited my script, and added wait for prompt after every send command and now it works perfect, thanks

Hi jarek.p,

I know, it seems excessive and it's a big undertaking in a script that size, but it's definitely a "best practice" and makes the script more stable.

I am glad to hear of your success!
