Terminal I/O Accounting?

» close window

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
  and AMDS.
