This course is designed to examine the components, structures and mechanisms of the OpenVMS Alpha operating system. It is intended for those students requiring an extensive understanding of these areas. This course discusses some of the interrelationships between code, data structures and synchronization techniques used in the operating system. System managers and application programmers will find useful technical background to assist them in their roles. Topics will include the effects of altering certain sysgen parameters, resource allocation and implications of granting privileges.
The ability to read, and ideally write code, in VAX macro
Students attending this course should leave with knowledge and understanding of:
The data structures that constitute a process and examine them using SDA
The HP OpenVMS scheduling mechanism and change system parameters which affect scheduling
The reasons for processes entering and leaving wait states
The process to examine the contents of HP OpenVMS virtual address space
Process and system stalls caused by process resource wait states
The activities occurring in the various HP OpenVMS access modes
Benefits to you
This course covers tasks to create new OpenVMS Systems. These tasks include installing the OpenVMS and layered products software, setting up the security environment, and customizing the system. The course also covers post installation tasks, such as registering licenses and configuring the network and cluster environment. This course involves the students in relevant exercises that reinforce the lectures and gives students the application of the lectures so that they can install and configure a new OpenVMS installation.
