DCL: Counting number of user processes for a period of time

DCL: Counting number of user processes for a period of time

Hi all,

i want to count the number of user-processes for a period of time. I need this to be able to get an idea how many concurrent users are active on the system during the week. The user-processes i'm interested in all start with CS.

Currently i'm looking into the following command:

CODE -->

> sho system /pr=cs* 
OpenVMS V7.3-2  on node xxxxxx   2-DEC-2014 09:05:57.59  Uptime  16 20:46:50
  Pid    Process Name    State  Pri      I/O       CPU       Page flts  Pages
0002A844 CS0AAAAAA       LEF      5     2114   0 00:00:01.73      1650    916  N
00024872 CS0BBBBBB       LEF      6     1500   0 00:00:01.12      1638    883  N
00029881 CS0CCCCCCCC     LEF      6     1551   0 00:00:01.25      1606    858  N
0002C48A CS1DDDDDD       LEF      6     1405   0 00:00:01.05      1603    786  N
0002BC8F CS1EEEEEEEE     LEF      6     1576   0 00:00:01.22      1605    809  N
0002A495 CS0FFFFFFFF     LEF      6     2219   0 00:00:02.48      1717    943  N 

I would like to create a logging of the CS processes every 15 minutes in a text-file.
Looping an command should not be a problem. I've done that before like this

CODE -->

$ WAIT 00:10

RE: DCL: Counting number of user processes for a period of time


Output the output of the show process to a file /out=name.txt or define sys$output sys$login:file.txt
The read the file looking for the process name extracting the name
open/read proc_list sys$login:file.txt
read proc_list proc_line
the proc_line symbol will give you the information then use f$extract lexical to partition the line
then open a local file for write to output the statistics
