ECP analyze display error

Hi

 

I have installed TDC 2.3-20 on VMS 8.4 and tried to analyze performance, but I get an error.

 

GRIPEN> plan analyze/motif
 Enterprise Capacity Performance Analyzer (c) 1997, 2006 Hewlett-Packard Develop ment Company, L.P., All Rights Reserved.
 gripen$dka0:[sys0.syscommon.][sysexe]ecp$analyze_motif.exe;1:  Can't open display

GRIPEN> mc decw$puzzle .     !  Works ok.


I also directed the output to my PC:

SET DISPLAY/CREATE/TRANSPORT=TCPIP/NODE=axdt0608.samba.net  gave the same error and decw$puzzle works.

 

Tried the following with the same result:
SET DISPLAY/CREATE/NODE=GRIPEN/TRANSPORT=DECNET
SET DISPLAY/CREATE/NODE=GRIPEN/TRANSPORT=TCPIP
SET DISPLAY/CREATE/NODE=GRIPEN/TRANSPORT=LOCAL

Availibility Manager command avail/analyze works with the display on my PC.

It can also start a display on my workstation but that only starts an all grey window with no lines or columns in it.

But that is another problem.

 

Any clue?

Re: ECP analyze display error

Jan,

 

   Very odd! I get a display from OpenVMS/Alpha V8.4 running ECP$ANALYZE_MOTIF version:

 

                image name: "DI_MOTIF"
                image file identification: "ECP V5.6A-30"
                image file build identification: ""
                link date/time: 23-MAY-2006 13:48:07.51
                linker identification: "A13-03"

 

with the display using /TRANSPORT=TCPIP pointing to a PC running ReflectionX

 

If your display is the local node, you should be using SET DISPLAY/TRANSPORT=LOCAL/NODE=YOURNODE.

 

Maybe there's a quota issue which is preventing the display from opening? My quotas for a subprocess running ECP$ANALYZE_MOTIF look like this (SHOW PROCESS/CONTINUOUS/ID=pid then hit Q):

 

    # open files remaining                97/100                  ( 97%)
    Direct I/O count/limit               150/150                  (100%)
    Buffered I/O count/limit             149/150                  ( 99%)
    BUFIO byte count/limit            296544/296672               ( 99%)
    ASTs remaining                       995/1000                 ( 99%)
    Timer entries remaining              199/200                  ( 99%)
    PGFL quota count/limit             29929/31250                ( 95%)
    ENQ quota count/limit               4996/5000                 ( 99%)

 Nothing spectacular, but maybe worth checking.

 

Unfortunately the secondary error, which would tell you WHY the display can't be opened has been omitted by the programmer. A long shot, check $STATUS immediately after the failed command, maybe that has more information?

 

Please log a case with your local customer support centre, as well as assisting you, they should send feedback to engineering to fix their error reporting!

Re: ECP analyze display error

As my ds10 workstation has became a bit messed up, I did a clean VMS install of 8.4.

Trying to install ECP fails.

 

        Beginning installation of VECP0 V56.A at 12:53

%VMSINSTAL-E-EXPIRED, This product has expired after OpenVMS Alpha version 8.3 %VMSINSTAL-E-EXPIRED, Please contact your local hp sales representative %VECP0-E-UNSUPVMSVER, Installation of this kit on this version of OpenVMS is not  supported.
%VMSINSTAL-E-INSFAIL, The installation of VECP0 V56.A has failed.

Earlier I had ECP installed before the upgrade to VMS 8.4.

Maybe it just don't run on VMS 8.4 even thogh it is an Alpha.

I know it's not for Itanium but theres nothing said about Alpha.

Re: ECP analyze display error

Jan,

 

do you have to happen a symbol named DISPLAY defined in your process ? That would be one possible cause for the problem you're describing. For some reason, the DECwindows routines seem to try a symbol with that name when creating the display.

Re: ECP analyze display error

Yes, I had a DIS*PLAY symbol, but nomore.
Now it's working!!
Thanks a lot Volker.
Now I just have to install it on VMS 8.3 and then upgrade to 8.4 to see if it still works.

Re: ECP analyze display error

To identify a network problem, rather than an ECP problem, run an ecp comand line

 

plan analyze/beg=/end=/node=nodename

 

I use the ported ECP
