Subject: Record not processing in simulation mode

Hi,
Using simulation mode for the first time I noticed some behavior I
didn't expect.

When I use the attached simple database and perform the following puts

caput foo.SIMM YES
caput foo.SVAL 42

foo.VAL changes to 42. This is what I expect.

However, when I try the same thing with a record that is tied to
hardware (also RTYP=ai but DTYP=asynFloat64, SCAN=I/O Intr) the record
doesn't process on writes to the SVAL field. Poking it manually ("caput
foo.PROC 1") triggers processing, though.

Is this how it should be? If so can someone shine some light on why it
is behaving like this?

Thanks a lot,

Martin

record(calc, "random") {
  field(CALC, "RNDM")
  field(SCAN, "1 second")
}

record(ai, "foo") {
  field(INP,  "random CPP MS")
}
