there is already a mechanism in RTIG to cleanup
on an Federate crash.

RTIG sees this with the reception of a NetworkException
on the socket between Federate's RTIA and RTIG.

and thus call
RTIG::closeConnection(link, true)
which in turns call
federations.killFederate(federation, federate).

Which should to the jobs.

Could you tell me if your trouble is still happening with
If yes could give me a scenario which reproduces the problem?

When a federate crashes I need to restart it but get stuck with the fact that such a federate is not resigned by certi and the federate and it's objects remain on the RTI. Are there plans to implement such a cleanup mechanism? If not then another federate within the federation has to resign the crashed federate. Currently this is not possible since the resign can only be done by the federate itselve via the rtiAmbassador. Looking at the resignFederationExecution it seems that I have to broadcast the socketUn data over the RTI so the controlling federate can use it to send out the resign message but I'm not sure if this will work. Any ideas? Win32, C++, HLA 1.3, IEEE-1516
