Is there any tool available in VMS for Performance testing (like IBM rational)?

PCA and DECdtm in the DECset package.

Re: Performance Tester in VMS

I am aware of many tools with which you can collect different kind of performance data.

To see the entire system performance you can use T4 and friends (http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/products/t4/)

If you have a test suite for your product you can use combination PCA and DTM to collect the performance statistics while running DTM. PCA helps to identify the hotspots in your application.

There are SDA extensions like PCS, PRF to collect the PC samples to understand which area of your code is hot.

Also there are many other tools which can help you to gather performance related data.

But I am not aware of any licensed or free tools available with which you can load the system.

Above tools would help you to collect different kind of data when you load you system may be by writing test scripts or a production environment.

Re: Performance Tester in VMS

1) You can use mechanize
http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/mechanize/
which is included in the LD images
http://www.vmspython.org/DownloadAndInstallationPython
install Python for you (see Process installation) or for everybody (see System Wide installation),

if you want to test web applications

2) you can use PTD
if you want to test "basic programs"

Re: Performance Tester in VMS

I have the following list of OpenVMS compatible Test and Performance Profiler SW. (some of these may run on an other OS but allow testing or profiling of VMS applications as a client)

DECset including...
DTM - Digital Test Manager
and
PCA - Performance and Coverage Analyzer

V-Test and V-Timer from Vedant (formerly from Cyrano and Performance Software)

NOTE: this is a welcome return of a good native OpenVMS software product to active commercialization after about 15 years of being lost in the business mergers of it's owners (I've used personally it in the mid 1990's, it's recommended)

Re: Performance Tester in VMS

Keith

Thanks for the list.

It is good news to see Cyrano (now sold by Vedant) back, but from the PDF, it is available only for Vax and Alpha, and VMS versions 7.1 to 7.3

It is a pity there is not an Itanium version available, and that there is not a more recent Vms version for Alphas.
