Recorder - OpenVMS Terminal Recording Software

Overview: Recorder v3.4

The Recorder Terminal Recording System for OpenVMS is a software package that allows a user to monitor the input and/or output streams of one or more interactive terminal sessions. Recorder is a subset of the Performance Simulation System (PSS) for OpenVMS. PSS allows a user to monitor, record, and then playback a terminal session on one or more real or pseudo terminals.


Recorder can be used to monitor both local and dial-in terminal sessions. This allows highly sensitive applications to be monitored for unauthorized access. In addition by monitoring the VMS system console, you have available a complete log of system events, including anything the operator entered. This feature is useful for monitoring operator interaction on production machines, when you require a complete record of events to determine and solve problems.

Minimum Hardware Supported

This product runs under the OpenVMS operating system under all standard, VAX and Alpha AXP-hardware configurations. The Recorder driver requires approximately 3Kb of physical memory. Each monitored terminal also requires approximately 3Kb of memory. Recorder supports all terminals that use the OpenVMS class-terminal driver.
