output from MONITOR SYSTEM

Hi,

I wanted to somehow store the output of the MONITOR SYSTEM process. Is there any way of doing this?

Kind Regards,
Niall

Re: output from MONITOR SYSTEM

Hi,

Check the "OpenVMS Performance Management" manual, and have a look at the command procedures MONITOR.COM, MONSUM.COM & SUBMON.COM in SYS$EXAMPLES.

Re: output from MONITOR SYSTEM

Niall,

HELP MONITOR

MONITOR
collects system performance data by class and produces the
following three forms of optional output:

o A disk recording file in binary format

o Statistical terminal displays

o A disk file containing statistical summary information in
ASCII format

MONITOR

/RECORD

/RECORD[=file-spec]
/NORECORD (default)

Specifies that a binary disk file be created containing all
collected data for the request. Note that recording is restricted
to files on disks. No wildcard characters are allowed in the file
specification. If you omit the file type, the default file type
is .DAT. If you omit the file specification, output is generated
to a file named MONITOR.DAT in the current default device and
directory. If you specify an existing file but omit the version
number, a new version of the file is created.

Re: output from MONITOR SYSTEM

and see also T4
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/products/t4/

which keeps MONITOR and other data in a more useful format.

Niall,

If you are asking this question in the same context as your other topic "User(s) transfer from 7.2 to 8.3", then check out T4 as ian indicated.
To get T4 going on 7.2 and the future system and the T4 display tool TLviz will merrily present you with pretty graphs allowing direct comparisons.

Re: output from MONITOR SYSTEM

Hi Niall76

You should have a look at this two procedures:

SYS$EXAMPLES:MONSUM.COM
and
SYS$EXAMPLES:SUBMON.COM

You could use this two procedures as a guideline for writing a specific Monitor Data sampler adjusted to your needs

Re: output from MONITOR SYSTEM

Load T4. It's functional, and it's less costly and less effort than rolling your own solution.
