NETACP CPU affinity?

» close window

The Question is:

Why the NETACP (decnet phase IV) is running only on CPU 0? Can we move it to
 another CPU?

The Answer is :

NETACP does not run on any particular CPU.  It has no particular need to run
only on CPU 0, or any other CPU in the system.
How do you know it's always running on CPU 0?  From the SHOW SYSTEM display?
This display gives you an infrequent, intermittent snapshot of the system
state (espeically on newer, faster systems), and the information in this
display is not suitable for system or performance tuning.
NETACP is generally not amajor contributor to system performance problems,
and the Wizard does not recommend changing the system defaults for process
However, if you want to learn more about Affinity and Capabilities in CPU
scheduling, refer to section 3.4 in the OpenVMS Programming Concepts Manual.
