The Question is:

I have just installed the latest version of ECP for OpenVMS. However, I am not
 able to obtain a chart for process states. Such as COM, LEF ... etc. The
 equivalent of MONITOR STATES. Why is this. How can I obtain this information
 from this release.
Thank you.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard will pass along a request that this information be
  added to the display.
  OpenVMS Alpha V7.3 includes the sys$getrmi interface, which permits a
  programmer direct access to the data that MONITOR uses.  (In earlier
  OpenVMS releases, the undocumented and unsupported exe$getspi interface
  was sometimes used.  An example of calling exe$getspi (for the processor
  modes information) exists on the OpenVMS Freeware.)
  The sys$getjpi system service can be used by a programmer to scan all
  processes (if the caller has WORLD privilege) for the associated process
  mode.  A DCL equivilent is available as well, using the DCL lexical
  function f$getjpi -- various DCL command procedures are available that
  can scan the active processes for a variety of purposes/
  For information and documentation on the available performance and
  capacity tools -- other than the MONITOR utility -- please see:
