RP/TUX 6.5, TUX 6.51 - OpenVMS, servopts(5) -r locks stderr, txrpt cannot read

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 6.5, 6.51
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

Tuxedo's server options (servopts / CLOPT) include a feature that gathers service processing information in a named
file (stderr by default) when the '-r' option is set.  The data can be used by the txrpt tool to analyze traffic.  On
OpenVMS, the file that is opened is locked exclusively by the RMS layer and cannot be accessed by any other process
until the owning server is shut down.  There is no known way to get passed the lock. Not even "backup
/ignore=interlock" works.  This limits the usefullness of txrpt.
