Monitoring OpenVMS Servers

OpenVMS is a multitasking and multiprocessing operating system based on VMS (the original operating system for VAX). The "Open" suggests the added support for the UNIX-like interfaces of the POSIX standard.

The eG remote agent executes tests on OpenVMS to extract critical statistics pertaining to the performance of the operating system. These tests and the measures they collect are mapped to specific layers of OpenVMS' layer model, which is depicted by Figure 1.
