Displays the contents of the stored machine check frame. This command is valid for the DEC 4000 Alpha, DEC 7000 Alpha, and DEC 10000 Alpha computers only.
SHOW MACHINE_CHECK [/FULL] [cpu-id]
cpu-idNumeric value indicating the identity of the CPU for which context information is to be displayed. This parameter changes the SDA current CPU (the default) to the CPU specified with cpu-id. If you specify the cpu-id of a processor that was not active at the time of the system failure, SDA displays the following message:
%SDA-E-CPUNOTVLD, CPU not booted or CPU number out of range
If you use the cpu-id parameter, the SHOW MACHINE_CHECK command performs an implicit SET CPU command, making the CPU indicated by cpu-id the current CPU for subsequent SDA commands. (See the description of the SET CPU command and Section 2.5 for information on how this can affect the CPU context---and process context---in which SDA commands execute.)
/FULLSpecifies that a detailed version of the machine check information be displayed. This is currently identical to the default summary display.
The SHOW MACHINE_CHECK command displays the contents of the stored machine check frame. A separate frame is allocated at boot time for every CPU in a multiple-CPU system. This command is valid for the DEC 4000 Alpha, DEC 7000 Alpha, and DEC 10000 Alpha computers only.
If you do not specify a qualifier, a summary version of the machine check frame is displayed.
The default cpu-id is the SDA current CPU.

The SHOW MACHINE_CHECK command in this SDA display shows the contents of the stored machine check frame for cpu-id 01.
Displays the availability and usage of memory resources.
SHOW MEMORY [/ALL][/BUFFER_OBJECTS][/CACHE][/FILES]
/ALLDisplays all available information, that is, information displayed by the following qualifiers:/BUFFER_OBJECTS
This is the default display.
/BUFFER_OBJECTSDisplays information about system resources used by buffer objects.
/CACHEDisplays information about either the Virtual I/O Cache facility or the Extended File Cache facility. The system parameter VCC_FLAGS determines which is used. The cache facility information is displayed as part of the SHOW MEMORY and SHOW MEMORY/CACHE/FULL commands.
/FILESDisplays information about the use of each paging and swapping file currently installed.
/FULLWhen used with the /POOL and /CACHE qualifiers, displays additional information. This qualifier is ignored otherwise. For /CACHE, the additional information is only displayed when the Virtual I/O Cache facility is in use (Alpha only); /FULL is ignored if the Extended File Cache facility is in use. Additional information on how memory is being used by the Extended File Cache facility can be obtained using the XFC extension described in Chapter 9.
/GH_REGIONSDisplays information about the granularity hint regions (GHR) that have been established. For each of these regions, information is displayed about the size of the region, the amount of free memory, the amount of memory in use, and the amount of memory released to OpenVMS from the region. The granularity hint regions information is also displayed as part of SHOW MEMORY and SHOW MEMORY/ALL commands.
/PHYSICAL_PAGESDisplays information about the amount of physical memory and the number of free and modified pages.
/POOLDisplays information about the usage of each dynamic memory (pool) area, including the amount of free space and the size of the largest contiguous block in each area.
/RESERVEDDisplays information about memory reservations.
/SLOTSDisplays information about the availability of process control block (PCB) vector slots and balance slots.
For more information about the SHOW MEMORY command, see the description in the HP OpenVMS DCL Dictionary or online help.
Displays a range of system page table entries, the entire system page table, or the entire global page table.
SHOW PAGE_TABLE [range | /FREE [/HEADER=address ]
| /GLOBAL | /GPT | /PT
| /INVALID_PFN [=option]
| /NONMEMORY_PFN [=option]
| /PTE_ADDRESS | /SECTION_INDEX=n
| /S0S1 (d) | /S2 | /SPTW | /ALL]
[/L1 | /L2 | /L3 (d)]
rangeRange of virtual addresses or PTE addresses for which SDA displays page table entries. If the qualifier /PTE_ADDRESS is given, then the range is of PTE addresses; otherwise, the range is of virtual addresses. The range given can be of process-space addresses.
If /PTE_ADDRESS is given, the range is expressed using the following syntax:
m Displays the single page table entry at address m m:n Displays the page table entries from address m to address n m;n Displays n bytes of page table entries starting at address m
If /PTE_ADDRESS is not given, then range is expressed using the following syntax:
m Displays the single page table entry that corresponds to virtual address m m:n Displays the page table entries that correspond to the range of virtual addresses from m to n m;n Displays the page table entries that correspond to a range of n bytes starting at virtual address m
Note that OpenVMS Alpha and Integrity servers page protections are slightly different. For additional information, see Section 2.8.
/FREECauses the starting addresses and sizes of blocks of pages in the free PTE list to be displayed. The qualifiers /S0S1 (default), /S2, /GLOBAL, and /HEADER determine which free PTE list is to be displayed. A range cannot be specified, and no other qualifiers can be combined with /FREE.
/GLOBALLists the global page table. When used with the /FREE qualifier, /GLOBAL indicates the free PTE list to be displayed.
/HEADER=addressWhen used with the /FREE qualifier, the /HEADER=address qualifier displays the free PTE list for the specified private page table.
/GPTSpecifies the portion of page table space that maps the global page table as the address range.
/INVALID_PFN [=option]The /INVALID_PFN qualifier, which is valid only on platforms that supply an I/O memory map, causes SDA to display only page table entries that map to PFNs that are not in the system's private memory or in Galaxy-shared memory, and which are not I/O access pages.
/INVALID_PFN has two optional keywords, READONLY and WRITABLE. If neither keyword is specified, all relevant pages are displayed.
If READONLY is specified, only pages marked for no write access are displayed. If WRITABLE is specified, only pages that allow write access are displayed. For example, SHOW PAGE_TABLE/ALL/INVALID_PFN=WRITABLE would display all system pages whose protection allows write, but which map to PFNs that do not belong to this system.
/L3 (D)Specifies the level for which page table entries are to be displayed for the specified portion of memory. You can specify only one level. /L3 is the default.
/NONMEMORY_PFN [=option]The /NONMEMORY_PFN qualifier causes SDA to display only page table entries that are not in the system's private memory or in Galaxy-shared memory.
/NONMEMORY_PFN has two optional keywords, READONLY and WRITABLE. If neither keyword is specified, all relevant pages are displayed.
If READONLY is specified, only pages marked for no write access are displayed. If WRITABLE is specified, only pages that allow write access are displayed. For example, SHOW PAGE_TABLE/ALL/NONMEMORY_PFN=WRITABLE would display all system pages whose protection allows write, but which map to PFNs that do not belong to this system.
/PTSpecifies that the page table entries for the page table region of system space are to be displayed.
/PTE_ADDRESSSpecifies that the range given is of PTE addresses instead of the virtual addresses mapped by the PTEs.
/SECTION_INDEX=nDisplays the page table for the range of pages in the global section or pageable part of a loaded image. For pageable portions of loaded images, one of the qualifiers /L1, /L2, or /L3 can also be specified.
/S2Specifies the region whose page table entries are to be displayed. When used with the /FREE qualifier, indicates the free PTE list to be displayed. By default, the page table entries or the free list for S0 & S1 space is displayed.
/SPTWDisplays the contents of the system page table window.
/ALLDisplays the page table entries for all shared (system) addresses. It is equivalent to specifying all of /S0S1, /S2, and /PT.
If the /FREE qualifier is not specified, this command displays page table entries for the specified range of addresses or section of memory. For each virtual address displayed by the SHOW PAGE_TABLE command, the first eight columns of the listing provide the associated page table entry and describe its location, characteristics, and contents. SDA obtains this information from the system page table or from the process page table if a process_space address is given. Table 4-8 desand IMGACT process pools. cribes the information displayed by the SHOW PAGE_TABLE command.
If the /FREE qualifier is specified, this command displays the free PTE list for the specified section of memory.
The /L1, /L2, and /L3 qualifiers are ignored when used with the /FREE, /GLOBAL, and /SPTW qualifiers.
Table 4-8 Virtual Page Information in the SHOW PAGE_TABLE Display Value Meaning MAPPED ADDRESS Virtual address that marks the base of the virtual page(s) mapped by the PTE. PTE ADDRESS Virtual address of the page table entry that maps the virtual page(s). PTE Contents of the page table entry, a quadword that describes a system virtual page. TYPE Type of virtual page. Table 4-9 shows the eight types and their meanings. READ (Alpha only.) A code, derived from bits in the PTE, that designates the processor access modes (kernel, executive, supervisor, or user) for which read access is granted. WRIT (Alpha only.) A code, derived from bits in the PTE, that designates the processor access modes (kernel, executive, supervisor, or user) for which write access is granted. MLOA (Alpha only.) Letters that represent the setting of a bit or a combination of bits in the PTE. These bits indicate attributes of a page. Table 4-10 shows the codes and their meanings. AR/PL (Integrity servers only) The access rights and privilege level of the page. Consists of a number (0-7) and a letter (K, E, S, or U) that determines access to a page in each mode. KESU (Integrity servers only) The access allowed to the page in each mode. This is an interpretation of the AR/PL values in the previous column. For an explanation of the access codes, see Section 2.8, Page Protections and Access Rights. MLO (Integrity servers only) Letters that represent the setting of a bit or a combination of bits in the PTE. These bits indicate attributes of a page. Table 4-10 shows the codes and their meanings. GH Contents of granularity hint bits.
Table 4-9 Types of Virtual Pages Type Meaning VALID Valid page (in main memory). TRANS Transitional page (on free or modified page list). DZERO Demand-allocated, zero-filled page. PGFIL Page within a paging file. STX Section table's index page. GPTX Index page for a global page table. IOPAG Page in I/O address space. NXMEM Page not represented in physical memory. The page frame number (PFN) of this page is not mapped by any of the system's memory controllers. This indicates an error condition.

SDA indicates pages are inaccessible by displaying one of the following messages:
------- 1 null page: VA FFFFFFFE.00064000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FF800190 ------- 974 null pages: VA FFFFFFFE.00064000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FF800190 -to- FFFFFFFE.007FDFFF -to- FFFFFFFD.FF801FF8
In this case, the page table entries are not in use (page referenced is inaccessible).
------- 1 entry not in memory: VA FFFFFFFE.00800000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FF802000 ------- 784384 entries not in memory: VA FFFFFFFE.00800000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FF802000 -to- FFFFFFFF.7F7FDFFF -to- FFFFFFFD.FFDFDFF8
In this case, the page table entries do not exist (PTE itself is inaccessible).
------- 1 free PTE: VA FFFFFFFF.7F800000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FFDFEOOO ------- 1000 free PTEs: VA FFFFFFFF.7F800000 PTE FFFFFFFD.FFDFE000 -to- FFFFFFFF.7FFCDFFF -to- FFFFFFFD.FFDFFF38
In this case, the page table entries are in the list of free system pages.
In each case, VA is the MAPPED ADDRESS of the skipped entry, and PTE is the PTE ADDRESS of the skipped entry.
