Please don't log in through VCS and then run MONITOR, MENU, PAGE, a file editor, or anything which uses cursor manipulation on the screen. Every last escape character used to display, as well as all the data displayed, will be stored in our disk file, and the disk will very rapidly fill up. Besides, we read through these files to make sure our nodes are healthy, and we don't want to read around all your escape characters, or even just your regular login and SHOW SYSTEM commands. If you need to login to a node, please connect from a terminal server or do a SET HOST to the node in question. Don't be lazy just because you are already running VCS, by doing a select or a connect!! EXIT from VCS and then SET HOST.
