The following section documents the web-based monitoring facilities available in PMDF. These facilities require both TCP/IP support and a web client in order to use.
Web-based monitoring of PMDF is accomplished through an HTTP CGI
(Common Gateway Interface). This interface is reached through the PMDF
HTTP server and accepts URL-encoded commands via either
Presently, the CGI only provides passive monitoring of PMDF; active
management is not supported but planned for future releases. Basic PMDF
information, channel counters and derived statistics, and the presence
.HELD message files may be monitored. Additionally, on
OpenVMS systems, PMDF processing queues and jobs may be monitored.
