110689 Active Task List Scan Version: V01090
Submitted by: Jim Lemasters, Bunker Ramo Electronic Systems, Westlake
Operating System: IAS V3.1 Source Language: MACRO-11 Memory
Required: 4KW Hardware Required: VT100 Terminal, AVO (optional).
Memory Management required for the FREE MEMORY count to function.
Keywords: System Management - IAS
Abstract: The Active Task List Scan task, ATS, displays the Active
Task List (ATL) on a VT100 terminal. The tasks are
displayed in the same format as the IAS ACT task, i.e.,
task name, current state, and terminal name, in priority
order. The task list is arranged in columns of up to 19
tasks and up to 4 columns. ATS displays in the top 2
lines of the screen the current system time, number of
free nodes, largest hole, amount of free memory, and
number of errors logged by ERRLOG. Low node count
warning messages are displayed on the bottom of the
screen. The display update interval, initially set to 1
second, can be dynamically modified. A specific task
and/or terminal name can be monitored as well as the
initial update interval set by optional switches on the
MCR command line.
Notes: Task State Table might need to be modified for later
Restrictions: Implemented and tested on RSX-11M V4.0, will also run on
VAX/VMS in compatibility mode except that shared files
may not be opened with write access, due to restrictions
of the compatibility mode emulation. PASMAC.MAC (a MACRO
definitions module for PASCAL-2) belongs to Oregon
Software, but is supplied with each PASCAL-2 license.
Media (Service Charge Code): One RX01 Diskette (KA) Format: RT-11,
