The Question is:
I am trying to speed up my home-grown odbc process between Windows 2K server
and my Alpha 200 4/233 running vms6.2. I purchased a DE500-AA and installed
it along with ALPBoot and ALPLan ECO's. I then ran the following tests:
Client machine: Dell 1Gig Ethernet Connection
File: 24,281,807 Byte file
Test1: to Alpha 200 10BaseT connector: 63.7 seconds or 381.17 KB/sec
Test2: to Alpha 200 100BaseT connector: 59.67 seconds or 406.92 KB/sec
Test3: to Another Dell 1Gib connector: .58 seconds or 42,010.05 KB/sec
Note: The 100 BT did not show much improvement over the 10BT card. Are they
any OpenVMS parameters that need to be adjusted?
The Answer is :
Your OpenVMS version and your (likely) IP version are ancient, your
AlphaStation system is near-first-generation-class with corresponding
near-first-generation PCI and EV4-class CPU performance -- not to
mention the field of other hardware- and software-related considerations
and other possibilities for this performance review is quite huge.
For details on setting up the negotiation for the DE500, please see
the OpenVMS FAQ.
