Subject: Using ca to force process a record

Hey everyone, 

I was wondering if there was a way to use CA to force process a passive, asynchronous, ai record. Within the database I can run dbtr to force process the record correctly however when I run caget -c record_name on the command line, I only seem to read the current value of the record without processing it. I have confirmed this by running my database with verbose options and sure enough no communication is sent when caget is executed. caput is able to correctly process a passive ao record and camonitor seems to correctly monitor changes to the database values but caget doesn't actually force anything to happen. I'm starting to write my own ca clients and was wondering if someone had an example of how to force process a passive asynchronous record and correctly read back the updated value. I am aware of and want to avoid the problem of reading back old data discussed in the Application Developers Guide 5.9.2. Thanks for your help. 

Cheers, 

Andrew
