Re: shutdown & memory on OPENVMS?

Hi,

Memory:

$ SHOW MEMORY

Shutdown (from a suitably privileged account):

$ @SYS$SYSTEM:SHUTDOWN

Regards,

Re: shutdown & memory on OPENVMS?

a small 1+ to Kris's answer.

Assuming a moderately recent version of OpenVMS, you can convert the sometimes confusing BLOCKS unit into BYTES (which may make more sense to anyone who has to ask this question)

$ SET PROCESS/UNIT=BYTE
$ SHOW MEMORY

This will display the memory as KB, MB, GB or TB rather than the number of 0.5K blocks.
