The PMDF CONFIGURE QUEUES utility configures a generic MAIL$BATCH queue
to run a site-specified number of PMDF Process Symbiont queues. The
PMDF CONFIGURE QUEUES utility will ask you how many Process Symbiont
queues you want to run, and which node you want to run each on. The
utility then generates the following files in
Example 9-1 shows a sample PMDF queue configuration utility dialogue.

$ PMDF CONFIGURE QUEUES This utility will create the following command files SYS$STARTUP:PMDF_INIT_QUEUES.COM SYS$STARTUP:PMDF_START_QUEUES.COM SYS$STARTUP:PMDF_STOP_QUEUES.COM SYS$STARTUP:PMDF_DELETE_QUEUES.COM How many execution queues do you want?  8 Do you want all queues to run on this node ALPHA1? [Y] Yes Do you want to initalize the queues now? [Y] Yes Do you want to start the queues now? [Y] Yes
pmdf_init_queues.com procedure can be used
to initialize your PMDF queues, and the
pmdf_start_queues.com procedure can be used to start your
PMDF queues. Such commands should be added to your system startup
procedure. Generally PMDF queues are initialized early during system
startup (before your networks are started) and these PMDF queues are
then started a little later (after your networks are started).
pmdf_delete_queues.com are provided for convenience in
testing, but are not normally used in production; in particular, there
is no need to stop PMDF queues before shutting down a system.
