Not Equal Result for Process Entry Slots (MAXPROCESSCNT) after Autogen

Hi,

 

I have problem with my OpenVMS 4-node cluster.

 

Due to an issue, I increase Process Entry Slots from 200 to 400.

Changing in SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]MODPARAMS.COMMON :

 

Change  :

MAX_MAXPROCESSCNT  = 200

 

To :

MIN_MAXPROCESSCNT  = 400

 

Then : @SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA REBOOT FEEDBACK

 

In node 1-3 :

show mem/full

Slot Usage (slots):                Total        Free    Resident     Swapped

  Process Entry Slots                400         318          82           0

  Balance Set Slots                  398         318          80           0

 

However in node 4 :

Slot Usage (slots):                Total        Free    Resident     Swapped

  Process Entry Slots               1015         932          83           0

  Balance Set Slots                 1013         932          81           0

 

Can advice me why in node 4 the the Process Entry Slots become 1015, not 400 as in other nodes ?

Is this normal condition ?

 

Thanks a lot.

Check SYS$SYSTEM:AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT for node 4. There may be a reason for AUTOGEN incrementing that parameter. Or check any node-specific parameter files for node 4.

Hi Volker,

 

Thanks for your help.

I wasn't aware of the AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT file.

 

One difference of this node 4 AGEN$PARAMS.REPORT compared to the others :

 

There are lines :

 

This run of AUTOGEN is *NOT* based on FEEDBACK information.
The resulting calculations may not be representative of your workload.
Hewlett-Packard recommends the use of feedback to
adjust system resources to match system workloads.

 

I am sure I used  : @SYS$UPDATE:AUTOGEN GETDATA REBOOT FEEDBACK

 

I  attach the params.report.

 

Maybe there is another command to force the node to read the MODPARAMS.COMMON ?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

you used GETDATA REBOOT FEEDBACK, but maybe there was no feedback data available ? Consider using SAVPARAMS as first parameter to make sure, that feedback data get collected.
