Queue_and_Threshold_Sizes.axi

I can't find any original thread for this so here goes.

My code suddenly stopped working yesterday, with none of the virtual devices visible in "show device". This is a symptom of technote 809 which recommends increasing the Device Manager Queue Size to 1500. The default is 500 and that's what my copy of Queue_and_Threshold_Sizes.axi was setting it to. Changing the queue size solved the problem so I've updated the code (also increasing some settings to their defaults) and thought I would share it here. Sorry about the formatting:

    We also use a small codeblock to set the Duet Mem automatically:
    DEFINE_CONSTANT
    CHAR MIN_DUET_MEM = 8 // define minimum size
     
    DEFINE_START
    IF(DUET_MEM_SIZE_GET() < MIN_DUET_MEM) // if it's less than our minimum
     {
      DUET_MEM_SIZE_SET(MIN_DUET_MEM) // set it to minimum
      WAIT 30 { REBOOT(0) } // and reboot system
     }
