Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Craig Mattocks
1. The N-AWIPS workstation Grunt crashed during an NMAP session twice -
first when SOO Chris Landsea was attempting to edit the Pacific Sea State
graphic, and second when clicking on the icon to access the
distance-measurement tool. Chris switched to using the Shiner workstation
to compose the product. TSB N-AWIPS expert Matt Sardi called and advised
Chris to reboot Grunt as soon as possible.
1. The ASCAT-B scatterometer winds were missing yesterday from N-AWIPS
because the processing was being run on Sr. Hurricane Specialist Mike
Brennan's desktop workstation (pinfish). TSB Developer Matt Sardi has
migrated the ingest and processing to one of NHC's primary compute servers
(nhc-lx-comp03), which will eventually be mirrored to the other compute
server (nhc-lx-comp01). The data are now populating to both the /ldm1 and
/ldm2/decoders/ascatb_25km* directories on NHC's NetApp (network mounted
storage) for access in N-AWIPS. Meanwhile, NCO SysAdmin Brian Maher has
determined that, as suspected from the "Input/output error" messages on the
Linux terminal screen, the hard disk on pinfish was damaged/corrupted. He
has backed up and is replacing the hard disk on the workstation.
2. Update on double/triple plotting of buoy data in N-AWIPS. TSB Web
Developer Dave Zelinsky has been investigating and consulting with NCO and
the other National Centers on this issue. One suggestion was to set the
filter under "edit source" to 0.01 (the smallest possible value). This
doesn't remove any real obs, but was suppose to get rid of the duplicates.
However, even though OPC is using such a filter, they still suffer from the
same double/tripple plotting problem, so this appears to be an N-AWIPS
decoder issue. OPC will contact NCO/SDB on NHC's behalf to address the
problem. The filter doesn't show the newest data, but rather shows a single
observation that remains in place until it times out. Therefore, when there
are multiple records, you see the first observation, not the latest
3. Sr. Hurricane Specialist Richard Pasch's new Lagrangian “adrift" buoy
(42057) is gradually streaming northwest towards the Yucatan Channel:
1. Due to an ongoing NetApp slowdown issue and the queues filling up on
NCO's ncodf9 DBNet server, the Himawari satellite data stream has been
temporarily reduced to channel B13 only.
