The Question is:
I have a GS160 with 4 cpu and 4 gb of memory running in one QUAD.
My question is fairly simple....
If I have 4 processes in a CUR state which means each processor is currently
running these processes..And then I have 4 more processes in a
COM state, awaiting for control of the processor for execution. My assumption
would be that this is normal, since we have 4 processors.
Is my assumption correct?
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS scheduling state CUR indicates that the process is
assigned to and executing on a processor. The number of processes
in CUR state can range from zero to the number of processors in
The COM scheduling state indicates that the process is computable
and is waiting to execute. There can be from zero to the total
number of processes in the OpenVMS system in the COM state.
Whether or not having four processes in the COM state is normal
is entirely dependent on the environment.
