I am a research student at University of Houston. I have been working with OpenVMS team in India for about 3yrs before this. I am interested to evaluate how OpenMP scales on OpenVMS, and believe would get some interesting results on OpenVMS as it supports kernel threads and upcalls.
I wanted to check if I can get any help in this forum, to get access a OpenVMS test system, where I can build OpenMP, and run some benchmarks.
Alternatively we have an 16cpu Itanium box, here in our university, which is running linux. I dint really understand what are the steps to follow, to get OpenVMS media or license for students, so that I can install it on our system here.
Basically I would be compiling our OpenMP implementation on the OpenVMS itanium system, and running a benchmark called EPCC to see the performance. A minimum of 16 CPUs would be great. But i can start off with 4 as well.
I am guessing that the system we have is from HP, but might have to cross check about that.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
