Zero error counts?

» close window

The Question is:

Is it possible to clear/reset device error counts. I get regular flagged errors
 fro HSZ controllers due to mirroring operations and this hides genuine error
 increases since the numbers get too big.
I want to be able to see genuine large increases in the error count as a way of
 monitoring problems.

The Answer is :

  Please review the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for
  some details on this topic.  Alternatively, a copy of the ZDEC tool
  was posted to comp.os.vms within the past few months.
  Alternatively, code some DCL using f$getdvi or an application
  using sys$getdvi[w].
  And if you have a hardware maintenance contract, predictive hardware
  fault analysis tools are available.
