dcmqrscp — DICOM image archive (central test node)

Synopsis

dcmqrscp [options] [port]

Description

The Image Central Test Node (dcmqrscp) Application implements a simple image archive. It manages a number of storage areas and allows images to be stored in these storage areas using the DICOM Storage Service Class. It also allows image attributes to be queried and images to be retrieved using the DICOM Query/Retrieve Service Class. The dcmqrscp application also implements access restriction rules to limit operations to specific peer application entities.

The dcmqrscp application is intended to be used in DICOM demonstrations and as a compatibility test tool. In particular, dcmqrscp will delete images if its quota restrictions have been exceeded.

Caution: Note that the format of dcmqrdb's binary index.dat file changed on 20130705 due to a bug fix in the corresponding code. An index.dat file created before that date will not work with dcmqrdb code compiled after that date but must be re-created. Use dcmqridx for that task or re-send all images to the server after deleting all old files (and creating a new empty index.dat file).

Parameters

port  tcp/ip port number to listen on (default: in config file)

Options

general options

-h    --help
        print this help text and exit

      --version
        print version information and exit

      --arguments
        print expanded command line arguments

-q    --quiet
        quiet mode, print no warnings and errors

-v    --verbose
        verbose mode, print processing details

-d    --debug
        debug mode, print debug information

-ll   --log-level  [l]evel: string constant
        (fatal, error, warn, info, debug, trace)
        use level l for the logger

-lc   --log-config  [f]ilename: string
        use config file f for the logger

-c    --config  [f]ilename: string
        use specific configuration file
        (default: /usr/local/etc/dcmtk/dcmqrscp.cfg)

# This option allows a specific configuration file to be
# specified.  By default, the configuration file in the
# system configuration directory ("etc" on Unix systems and
# current working directory on Windows systems) with the name
# "dcmqrscp.cfg" will be used.  It is an error if a valid
# configuration file is not available.  See the documentation
# on configuration for more information (dcmqrcnf.txt and the
# example configuration file dcmqrscp.cfg).

multi-process options

-s    --single-process
        single process mode

# This option instructs dcmqrscp to run in single process mode.
# Normally, dcmqrscp will spawn a new copy of itself to handle
# each association.  This option will prevent such copies being
# spawned and is particularly useful when running within a
# debugger.

      --fork
        fork child process for each association (default)

# Please note that the multi-process options are only available
# on systems that support the fork() call, i.e. not on Windows.

database options

association negotiation:

        --require-find
          reject all MOVE/GET presentation contexts for
          which no corresponding FIND context is proposed

  # This option causes dcmqrscp to enforce a restriction about
  # FIND and MOVE presentation contexts.  The RSNA'93 demonstration
  # required that a CTN refuse to accept a presentation context for
  # a MOVE if a FIND presentation context is not also requested.
  # This option enforces this restriction.

        --no-parallel-store
          reject multiple simultaneous STORE presentation
          contexts for one application entity title

  # This option causes dcmqrscp to refuse storage presentations
  # contexts for AE Titles if another association has already
  # successfully negotiated storage presentation contexts for the
  # AE Title.  This option should only be needed for debugging
  # since the dcmqrscp database back-end sequentialises access via
  # file-locking.

        --disable-get
          disable C-GET support

        --allow-shutdown
          allow external shutdown via a private SOP class

checking identifier validity:

  -XF   --check-find
          check C-FIND identifier validity

  # This option causes dcmqrscp database back-end to perform checks
  # on the Query Identifiers for a C-FIND command.  With this option,
  # dcmqrscp will reject any queries which do not conform to the very
  # strict DICOM rules for Query Identifiers.

        --no-check-find
          do not check C-FIND identifier validity (default)

  -XM   --check-move
          check C-MOVE identifier validity

  # This option causes dcmqrscp database back-end to perform checks
  # on the Query Identifiers for a C-MOVE command.  With this option,
  # dcmqrscp will reject any queries which do not conform to the very
  # strict DICOM rules for Query Identifiers.

        --no-check-move
          do not check C-MOVE identifier validity (default)

Notes

Operation

dcmqrscp waits for another application to connect at the presentation address (port number) specified in its configuration file (or overridden by a command line option). When another application connects, dcmqrscp expects it to be a DICOM application and to use calling and called AE Titles specified in dcmqrscp's configuration file. dcmqrscp will accept associations with Presentation Contexts for SOP Classes of the Verification Service Class, Storage Service Class and Query/Retrieve Service Class. Associations will be rejected or Presentation Contexts will be refused if the peer application does not have appropriate access rights as specified by dcmqrscp configuration file.

dcmqrscp will receive images on Presentation Contexts of the Storage Service Class, write them to a configurable storage area associated with the class AE title, extract attributes from these images and store them in a database. dcmqrscp will receive query requests and generate query responses on Presentation Contexts of the Query/Retrieve Service class. dcmqrscp will receive retrieve requests and generate retrieve responses on Presentation Contexts of the Query/Retrieve Service class. dcmqrscp will also process C-CANCEL messages to interrupt query/retrieve operations.

Under normal operations dcmqrscp will never exit, it keeps on waiting for new associations until killed.

The dcmqrscp application will accept presentation contexts for all of the above mentioned supported SOP Classes using any of the transfer syntaxes:

LittleEndianImplicitTransferSyntax                   1.2.840.10008.1.2

BigEndianExplicitTransferSyntax                      1.2.840.10008.1.2.2

The dcmqrscp application will prefer transfer syntaxes having an explicit encoding over the default implicit transfer syntax. If dcmqrscp is running on big-endian hardware it will prefer BigEndianExplicit to LittleEndianExplicit transfer syntax (and vice versa). This behavior can be changed with the --prefer options (see above). Depending on these options, the following transfer syntaxes are supported:

Configuration

The dcmqrscp program uses the same configuration file as the dcmqrti program. See the documentation on configuration for more information.

Access Control

When compiled on Unix platforms with TCP wrapper support, host-based access control can be enabled with the --access-control command line option. In this case the access control rules defined in the system's host access control tables for dcmqrscp are enforced. The default locations of the host access control tables are /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny. Further details are described in hosts_access(5).

Logging

The level of logging output of the various command line tools and underlying libraries can be specified by the user. By default, only errors and warnings are written to the standard error stream. Using option --verbose also informational messages like processing details are reported. Option --debug can be used to get more details on the internal activity, e.g. for debugging purposes. Other logging levels can be selected using option --log-level. In --quiet mode only fatal errors are reported. In such very severe error events, the application will usually terminate. For more details on the different logging levels, see documentation of module 'oflog'.

In case the logging output should be written to file (optionally with logfile rotation), to syslog (Unix) or the event log (Windows) option --log-config can be used. This configuration file also allows for directing only certain messages to a particular output stream and for filtering certain messages based on the module or application where they are generated. An example configuration file is provided in <etcdir>/logger.cfg.

Command Line

All command line tools use the following notation for parameters: square brackets enclose optional values (0-1), three trailing dots indicate that multiple values are allowed (1-n), a combination of both means 0 to n values.

Command line options are distinguished from parameters by a leading '+' or '-' sign, respectively. Usually, order and position of command line options are arbitrary (i.e. they can appear anywhere). However, if options are mutually exclusive the rightmost appearance is used. This behavior conforms to the standard evaluation rules of common Unix shells.

In addition, one or more command files can be specified using an '@' sign as a prefix to the filename (e.g. @command.txt). Such a command argument is replaced by the content of the corresponding text file (multiple whitespaces are treated as a single separator unless they appear between two quotation marks) prior to any further evaluation. Please note that a command file cannot contain another command file. This simple but effective approach allows one to summarize common combinations of options/parameters and avoids longish and confusing command lines (an example is provided in file <datadir>/dumppat.txt).

Environment

The dcmqrscp utility will attempt to load DICOM data dictionaries specified in the DCMDICTPATH environment variable. By default, i.e. if the DCMDICTPATH environment variable is not set, the file <datadir>/dicom.dic will be loaded unless the dictionary is built into the application (default for Windows).

The default behavior should be preferred and the DCMDICTPATH environment variable only used when alternative data dictionaries are required. The DCMDICTPATH environment variable has the same format as the Unix shell PATH variable in that a colon (':') separates entries. On Windows systems, a semicolon (';') is used as a separator. The data dictionary code will attempt to load each file specified in the DCMDICTPATH environment variable. It is an error if no data dictionary can be loaded.
