The Question is:
just a quick question hopefully - we currently use "Pathworks v6.0 (Advanced
Server)" on OpenVMS 7.2-1.
When we move to OpenVMS7.3 we will hopefully use "Advanced Server v7" instead.
The question is : is this new version of 'Pathworks' multi-CPU capable - i.e.
does this new version still have the "PWRK$LMSRV" process that does ALL the
major work and is tied to one CPU....
The Answer is :
Advanced Server V7.3A, the current release, contains significant
enhancements targetted at improving performance of the PWRK$LMSRV
The enhancement requested here, the ability to have multiple PWRK$LMSRV
processes running on multiple CPUs is part of our planned scalability
The scalability release is on the OpenVMS Rolling Roadmap
in the 2004/2005 time frame.
