A summary of NHC computer operations.




1. Information Technology Officer/Linux Engineer/SysAdmin Doug Gaer, visiting NHC this week from NWS Southern Region Headquarters’ Technology Infusion Branch, will be working with NCO Linux SysAdmin Martin Graham to upgrade SSU's 48-core/96-thread sardine server. This will include a RAM memory expansion, internal Solid State Device (SSD) drives, and an external hard disk enclosure for additional storage. The upgrade is being coordinated with the TAFB marine forecasters. During the upgrade, the NWPS Atlantic domain simulations will be offloaded to the comp02 server, while the NWPS Pacific domain will not be run for 1-2 days, depending on how long it takes to complete the upgrade.


1. NCO Linux SysAdmin Brian Maher has upgraded the ATCF workstation at the Pacific desk to Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.7.


1. Brian Maher and TSB Developer Matt Sardi have upgraded the dbn1 DBnet server to RHEL 6.7.
