Reni reports: <<We divided our manuals to several smaller ones like
Programming manual, Programming Interfaces, Reference manual and User
manual. If we decide to make a separate manual from sections: -
configuration parameters and - log, alarm and statistic messages What would

"Reference" manual, since that's what these sections contain: material that
people will _refer_ to when they need to look up parameters or messages.
They won't likely read this manual either for pleasure or to find out how to
do a procedure; that's what they'll find in the "User" manual.
