TCP/IP Services and keepalive I/O?

» close window

The Question is:

Are there any known issues with TCP/IP on Alpha
VMS 7.2 where the BG device does a great deal
of I/O in this scenerio?
1. Create a TCP connection to an end device.
2. Send some data packets to the device.
3. Do no further activity at all to the device.
4. Power-off the device.
At some point after step 4 is when the BG I/O
activity is noticed.
The TCP connection is made with keep-alives
enabled, so could this be a case of poorly
tuned keep-alive timing?

The Answer is :

  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center.  Expect to be
  asked details of the environment and the application, of the TCP/IP
  Services version, and the reported problem.  You may be asked for a
  reproducer.  You will also be encouraged to upgrade to OpenVMS Alpha
  V7.2-1 release and to TCP/IP Services V5.0A or V5.1, and to apply the
  available (mandatory) ECO kits for OpenVMS and for TCP/IP Services.
