Hi,

I believe that there is something in OpenVMS to limit the entry numbers for use by batch/print queues. I am used to seeing entry numbers cycle from 1 to 1000. However, I am now seeing entry numbers in the 6000's. If I get to 10000 I will have some programming issues.

Can anyone direct me to the system limiter? (if that is what is it is called).

Thanks

If you can not find it at http://h41379.www4.hpe.com/doc/os84_index.html then you can not assume that there is any specific limit on queue entry numbers.

Queue entry numbers are unique to a cluster.

I would look in the system services sys$getqui documentation.

With OpenVMS 8.0, several counters with no documented limits had their sizes extended, and subsequent releases of 8.x some of the code started using those larger ranges.

I know the number of users can be limited. I thought that the same thing could be applied to the entry numbers. Until recently, the numbers have always been under 1000.

Thanks for the reply.

After a shutdown and restart, the entry numbering has returned to normal.
It had been a while since the last restart...

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
