Submitted by:  Joe Weber2.0     OPEN VMS ALPHA PERFORMANCE TIP        Logical Names Require More JTQUOTA on AXP Than VAX Systems        Last Technical Review: 14-SEP-1994        PRODUCTS:   OpenVMS VAX, All Versions                    OpenVMS AXP, All Versions        COMPONENT:  Memory Management        SOURCE:     Digital Equipment Corporation / DSNlink        PROBLEM:        Applications using Job Logical Names may have to increase the process        JTQUOTA parameter when migrating applications from OpenVMS VAX to        OpenVMS AXP.  If JTQUOTA is not large enough on the AXP system, the        following error results:               %SYSTEM-F-EXLNMQUOTA, logical name table is full        Current documentation does not point out this difference.        SOLUTION:        In order to fix the problem, increase the JTQUOTA value in AUTHORIZE        for accounts using Job Logical Names.  JTQUOTA does not affect other        process quotas (such as BYTLM) and is used to place a limit on how        many job logical names a process can create from the PAGEDYN pool        area.  (Process logicals are limited to the availability of room in        CTLPAGES region of process space).        To availability of JTQUOTA, use the DCL Command:             $ SHOW LOGICAL/JOB/FULL             (LNM$JOB_80A80A80)      [kernel]  [shareable]  [Quota=(48,1024)]                 [Protection=(RWCD,RWCD,,)]  [Owner=[X,Y]]        In this example, the user has only 48 bytes left out of an initial value        of 1024 bytes.
