Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Craig Mattocks


1. None.
1. Sr. Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan's desktop workstation (pinfish)  
was sluggish, so he rebooted it. The machine came back up and he is able to  
log in remotely, but the display/console never comes up with a login  
screen. It might be necessary to install NCO's "self-annealing" driver  
script, now used on NHC's N-AWIPS workstations, that detects and  
automatically installs missing or corrupted Nvidia video drivers during the  
boot process. This script prevents problems with reboots after Linux kernel  
updates. Mike has submitted an NCO HelpDesk ticket on this issue.
Other items:
1. Himiwari satellite data and NCO DBNet servers. Two problems occurred  
over the weekend in receiving Himiwari satellite data. The first problem  
was caused by a failure of an ftp server at NESDIS. Once NCO switched the  
dataflow from the NESDIS STAR 'ftp2' server to the 'ftp' server, the data  
began flowing again. The second problem, DBNet queues filling up on the  
NCODF9 server, was caused by a socket server that was turned on last  
Thursday. Once it was turned off, the load returned to normal, the server  
stabilized, and the Himiwari dataflow was restored. TAFB forecasters  
verified this morning that they can view the data in N-AWIPS.

2. TSB AWIPS SysAdmin Chris Mello noticed an alarm indicating that  
satellite winds were not updating. Most likely, this was caused by an issue  
on the non-operational SSEC server at Wisconsin. HSU and TAFB forecasters  
are not noticing any missing operational satellite wind products this
