5 Day(s)


This five-day, hands-on, lecture/lab course presents OpenVMS performance under three subsystems: memory management, I/O, and CPU. Did you know you can reserve places on this course whilst you seek approval .


OpenVMS System Managers, Applications Programmers, and System Programmers.


Students should have a fundamental understanding of system management and be able to:

  • Set up accounts.
  • Use SYSGEN/SYSMAN to change a system parameter.
  • Run AUTOGEN.
  • Use the INSTALL utility.
  • INITIALISE and MOUNT a disk Students should also have a fundamental understanding of programmin concepts, including:-
  • Understanding the purpose of a compiler.
  • Understanding the purpose of a linker.
  • Understanding how a computer executes a program.

Skills Gained

  • How to isolate performance bottlenecks to one of the three subsystems.
  • Sufficiency (keep the system running), as well as tunining considerations. Sudents attending this course should not expect to work with network performance or to find a magic system parameter that will make their system run. The effects of SYSGEN parameters on each of the subsystems, when to change these parameters, and when other mangement modifications or the purchase of new hardware will be required.
  • The relative merits/drawbacks of using AUTOGEN.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
