Thread: changes to MONITOR PROCESS/TOPCPU

  1. changes to MONITOR PROCESS/TOPCPU

    Using MONITOR PROCESS/TOPCPU on 8.3 today, nice to see that essential
    VMS tools continue to be developed:

    o there are now no blank lines in the list (giving twice as many on
    a screen)

    o the all-time top VMS mystery of why the highest quartile is 25%
    larger than the other three has been eliminated

    However, I don't see why the vertical lines were removed! Please put
    them back!

    More like just a difference from when it was reimplimented, from PLI
    to C.

    They are not removed, hold down CTRL-W, you'll see them.

    If you are meaning the ones, that indicated the 0,25,50,75,100 marks,
    I believe they used to be on the "blank" lines you mentioned earlier,
    that have now been removed.

    I would suggest this is most likely a bug introduced in the PLI to C
    port.

    OK, but some things were changed as well.

    Hopefully nothing was broken like when MAIL went from BLISS to C.

    OK, I'll give it a try, but running the 7.3-2 and 8.3 montors side by
    side, they were always visible in the former.

    Aahhh, that could be it. They could be put back, but that would be a
    bit trickier, perhaps beyond the C-programmer in question!

    Indeed. Sic transit gloria mundi.

    If you look carefully, they're drawn at startup but quickly erased.

    Almost certainly unintentional.

    These vertical lines are not removed rather they are filled with more
    information. In older version
    where the vertical lines are coming is now filled with more process
    information.

    In 7.3-2 the number of process information is specific to the number
    of CPU's but from 8.2 it is giving
    top 16 process information irespective of number of CPU's.

    Since for the first time monitor prints the display template it prints
    that but latter when the information are
    displayed it is being written on the top of that.

    I wouldn't say this as a bug insted this is something better than
    the old one.
