OpenVMS Boot Camp 2015
 
A practical guide to getting RMS statistics in your T4

Track: Performance

Speaker
Duncan Morris, Senior VMS Engineer, CDL


Description
Whilst the standard metrics captured by T4 are an excellent indication of overall system performance, managers frequently need to correlate this information with detailed hot file usage information. This session will show you how to combine T4 with the RMS performance information available from Hein van den Heuvel’s powerful RMS_STATS program. The methodology follows the principles described by Gorazd Kikelj in the OpenVMS Technical Journal V11, but uses RMS_STATS instead of MONITOR/RMS. This allows for a single RMS collector process instead of the one-process-per-file. Real world examples of using the output will be given. A basic understanding of T4 usage is recommended.
