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



1. N-AWIPS issues: The 00Z USA (Unified Surface Analysis) was not  
automatically sent from the backup workstation (sheephead) to WPC at H +  
1:00 to populate the N. American Surface Analysis. Mike Tichacek had to use  
the force_send script at the workstation twice. TSB Developer Chris Mello  
is checking on the system configuration and crontabs on sheephead after it  
was upgraded to RHEL 6 to see if something is missing.

2. GOES-16 Data Problems: For GRB (GOES Rebroadcast) issues at NHC,  
forecasters are advised to contact GWSAS (Geostationary Weather Satellite  
Antenna System) Tier 1 support, either by phone or email, at Tech Control:

Tech Control
(301) 713-0902
toc.nwstg at noaa.gov

Please specify GWSAS at NHC in all correspondence.

If you are absolutely sure NHC is experiencing an ISatSS (system for  
NWS-specific tailoring of satellite data products) problem (data looks fine  
in AWIPS, but NOT in N-AWIPS), then please contact Joe Zajic directly:

Joseph K. Zajic
Principal Systems Engineer
Integrity Applications Incorporated
(301) 427-9258 (o)
(703) 966-4758 (c)

Other items:
1. A 24-hour parallel production test on the WCOSS supercomputing clusters  
in Reston, VA (Luna/Tide) is underway. The NHC guidance suite (spaghetti  
models) and P-Surge are part of the test. Some early glitches (deactivated  
LSF transfer queues on the dev machines) have been fixed.

2. Schedule for Cray GPFS filesystem split on the WCOSS supercomputing  
clusters in Orlando, FL (Surge/Gyre):
July 23-26: Increase # inodes on Surge & split /gpfs/hps into 3 separate  
filesystems (72 hr outage)
July/31?: Production cycle test of Gyre/Surge for Surge filesystem change  
(date tentative, 24 hr test)
