OpenVMS always performs its I/O asynchronously. Several


parameters that mimic asynchronous behavior are not needed on OpenVMS. Refer
to the Oracle9i Administrator’s Guide, section 1.5.3 for the list of parameters that are
not supported on OpenVMS.


With some limitations, Oracle9i for HP OpenVMS with iAS mid tier (with VMS
back end database configuration) is supported. For information about iAS support,
