OpenVMS process status

Hello everybody.
We have a Alpha DS25, OpenVMS8.2 installed. We have some applications started as processes and a monitor application to monitor the status of these processes. Usually the status are HIB or LEF or CEF, but some times when we start or stop these processes, some have their status turned to RWA for a while. What does this status means?

Re: OpenVMS process status

This means the process is in Resource Wait for some reason, for example a good doc about the process in Rwast is
http://www.pottsoft.com/home/vms/rwast.html

More generally, you can see the list of the states of a process with
lib/extract=$rsndef/out=rsn.mar sys$library:lib.mlb will put in rsn.mar
the list of states

See the doc at

The STATES class shows the number of processes in each of the 14 scheduler states. The following table describes these scheduler states:

Re: OpenVMS process status

This is resource wait state (RWAST).You can see the details by going through performance management of openvms 7.3-2 system administration document.Some time this problem solved by stopping and restarting decnet network.

Re: OpenVMS process status

hi ZK,
try using sda, and do a show proc/channel

mrityunjoy,
there are several logicals that can up
the defaut parameters for decnet, see the
documentation. If that doesn't cure your
rwast, please if you would, gather the details. ie whats hung from sda etc, and bring it to HP and get a problem report issued. tx Dean
