|DESCRIPTION OF ENHANCEMENTS
This *KIDS* patch contains updates to the VAX/ALPHA PERFORMANCE MONITOR
the start of the next read. Response time is the average of the response
events for a given period of measurment. As with other VPM metrics,
response time raw data will be stored for each session and a daily average
for the workday will be computed and stored in file 8986.6, tolerance
limits will be computed, data will be included in the morning summary
report, and events outside of your expected range will be identified.
a. Bernstein Response Time Monitor options will be deleted.
b. The file CM BERNSTEIN DATA (8986.098) will be replaced with a
new file to support VPM response time data.
c. Two new metrics will be added to the CM METRICS FILE:
RTM-VPM Response Time
2) This updates the VMS PERFORMANCE MONITOR to use Kernel 8's host file
managment utilities in ^%ZISH.
XUCMNIT value = 15387419
XUCMNIT2 value = 17426297
XUCMNIT4 value = 12158370
XUCMNT3A value = 10755761
XUCMVPI value = 6254847
XUCMVPM value = 4073012
XUCMVPM1 value = 11910365
1. These routines may be mapped on systems that allow mapping,
Make sure you have installed the Kernel patch, XU*8.0*35 (containing
so you will need to disable mapping for the effected routines.
2. Use the 'INSTALL/CHECK MESSAGE' option on the PackMan menu. This
option will load the KIDS package in this message onto your system.
3. Answer NO to the question:
'Shall I preserve what is on disk in a separate back-up message ?'
4. From the 'Installation Menu' of the KIDS menu, run the option
'Verify Checksums in Transport Global' and verify that all routines
have the correct checksum.
5. This patch can be installed with users on the system.
6. Disable VPM using the option, ENABLE/DISABLE VPM. In MGR, enter the
RTH Utilities (D ^RTH) and stop RTHIST if it is running. Repeat this on
7. Use the KIDS menu to complete the installation.
8. In the vms directory containing VPM files, delete files using the
command, "DELETE XUCM*.COM.*"
9. Sign back in to DSM and run the option, SETUP PERFORMANCE MONITOR.
This will create a new set of VMS MONITOR and RTHIST drivers.
10. Re-enable VPM.
11. Using Taskman's ONE TIME OPTION QUEUE, run the option, XUCM
TASK NIT. This will restart RTHIST data collections on all nodes.
1) It introduces a new algorithm permitting VPM to compute and store
system RESPONSE TIME. A response event is defined as the elapsed time
beginning at the moment a user presses the RETURN/ENTER key and ending at
