Forecasters reported another problem. There were delays with the AWIPS2,
NHA domain ingesting the WFO grids (ISC grids). Forecasters identified the
problem around 8:15 AM. TSB worked with NCF (Matt Howard). The grids began
ingesting on there own after a 45 minute delay. The edex log files recorded
no apparent issues.

   Some action items.

   If the ISC grids appear old again in a short fuse time situation .

   1.  Restart GFE to see if the ISC grid times update. Another site
reported some issues with latent grids. This might help identify the nature
of the problem.

   2. Forecasters can use the Consistency----ISC request script in GFE to
request the ISC grids in question to see if the grids get ingested.

   3. Inform NCF and TSB

     We are not sure of the exact cause of the problem, but the delays
occurred during heavy ISC traffic, so we are not sure if it is a network
issue...Matt Howard and TSB will continue to investigate...
