NFS Client issue on OpenVMS 8.4 and TCPIP 5.7 ECO2



SInce I have been upgraded to OpenVMS 8.4 and TCPIP V5.7 ECO 2 on I64, I have problem with the response time of NFS Client.

Sometimes it takes more then 5 minutes to display the files. When I look at the process it is using a lot of CPU but after 5 minutes I get the reseult. Normally it takes 1 second to get the result.

I don't understand why it takes sometimes so long time with a lot of CPU usage and one hour later it is working normal and give the results within a second.

This behaviour is the same with NFS version 2 and NFS version 3.

Has somebody else got the same problem?


Below some details:

Call HP Support.  (ECO2 is known to have other issues.)


If you're in a hurry and pending a quick(er) fix from HP, consider dropping back to no-ECO or ECO1.
