Diagnosing OpenVMS and IP Performance?

» close window

The Question is:

We  are running TCPIP 5.0 on VMS 7.2 on a VAX 4000-700A.
The users are whinging that the vax response is slow. No surprises here. I'm
 getting Compaq to tune the file system. The only other unknown is the network
How can I monitor/assess tcpip statistics / throughput on the NIC in our
 system. Our network has its own problems however I want to prove that the
 vaxes are not the bottleneck.
thanx in advance.

The Answer is :

  Please see the basic tuning and diagnostic techniques outlined
  in the OpenVMS Performance Management manual.
  Please see the DECamds tool.
  Please see the DECnet and TCP/IP line and circuit counters.
  An upgrade to TCP/IP V5.0A is recommended.
