HP OpenVMS DCL Dictionary
Displays the current default values for the multiblock count, the
multibuffer count, the network transfer size, the prolog level, the
extend quantity, and the query lock option.
The SHOW RMS_DEFAULT command displays information that OpenVMS Record
Management Services (RMS) uses for file operations including the
default values for the multibuffer count, the multiblock count, the
network block count, the prolog level, the extend quantity, and the
query lock option. The command provides these values at both the
current process level and at the system level.
The SHOW RMS_DEFAULT command lists the multibuffer count values for
each of the file types, including the values for the three classes of
sequential files (disk, magtape and unit record).
Specifies the file to which the display is written (default is
SYS$OUTPUT). The asterisk (*) and the percent sign (%) wildcard
characters are not allowed in the file specification. If you enter the
/OUTPUT qualifier with a partial file specification (for example,
specifying only a directory), SHOW is the default output file name and
.LIS the default output file type.
If you enter the /NOOUTPUT qualifier, output is suppressed.
$ SHOW RMS_DEFAULT
MULTI- | MULTIBUFFER COUNTS | NETWORK
BLOCK | Indexed Relative Sequential | BLOCK
COUNT | Disk Magtape Unit Record | COUNT
Process 0 | 0 0 0 0 0 | 0
System 16 | 0 0 0 0 0 | 8
Prolog Extend Quantity VCC_DFW QUERY_LOCK

The SHOW RMS_DEFAULT command in this example shows a system multiblock
count of 16 and a network block count of 8. These are typical values.
Note that the placeholder, VCC_DFW, is currently reserved for use by HP.
Displays the current value of the system root and, if defined, the
$ SHOW ROOT
$ SET ROOT DISK5:[ PSX$ROOT]
$ SHOW ROOT
The SHOW ROOT command in this example displays the current root path.
The SET ROOT command changes these defaults, and the next SHOW ROOT
command displays the new default root.
