You must execute two procedures during system startup in order to set up the execution environment for both the Performance Manager and the Performance Agent, and you should always start the agent first. If you are running in an OpenVMS cluster which contains multiple system disks, you must add the commands to the startup procedures on each system disk. Moreover, we recommend that you add them to a command procedure that is located in a common directory on each system disk. Here are the commands to use:
$@SYS$STARTUP:UPM$AGENT$STARTUP !This command procedure sets up the agent's execution environment and starts the agent daemon process
$@SYS$STARTUP:UPM$MANAGER$STARTUP !This command procedures sets up the manager's execution environment
Add the following command to your system shutdown procedure to shutdown the Performance Agent during system shutdown. It is not necessary to shutdown the Performance Manager since it does not have any daemon processes that need to be shutdown:
Just as with the startup commands, we recommend you add the command to a cluster-common shutdown procedure when applicable.
