The Question is:
I need to collect information about terminal traffic in a Open-VMS 7.1-1H2
Is there any command that could be used to collect information about terminal
Is the data information in KB/s?
I intend to analyze those data after collect them.
The Answer is :
Please first seriously consider an upgrade to an OpenVMS release
with Current Version Support or Prior Version Support -- your
OpenVMS release is an old and limited hardware release, and a
release that was intended to be upgraded to a mainline release.
Terminal traffic I/O depends highly on the particular terminal
interface(s) and communications protocol(s) used -- whether the
traffic is serial (local), IP, LAT, DECnet or otherwise.
OpenVMS itself does not specifically differentiate terminal I/O
from other I/O, so these values would have to be gathered from
specific devices and processes involved. Accounting gathers
direct and buffered I/O operations, and does not differentiate
which I/O operations are specific to terminal devices.
For more general I/O monitoring tools, please see the MONITOR
utility (and particularly its ability to record and to then
play back data), and see tools such as Availability Manager
