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


1. NCO continues to make configuration changes to the cumulus N-AWIPS  
workstation as part of the upgrade to the RHEL6 operating system. The  
workstation is currently stable. Surface Analyst Evelyn Rivera-Acevedo will  
run it through some stress tests and report to TSB (Matt Sardi) later today.

2. To address multiple GFE ingest failures of the Atlantic/NH2 domain NWPS  
wave model output, AWIPS-II Sysadmin Chris Mello is developing a new script  
that will break the large output into separate time (snapshot) files. This  
mimics the way that most grib2 data is ingested.

Chris will also work with Lead Forecaster Eric Christensen to convert all  
TAFB forecasters' procedures to D2D so the SBN data feed can eventually be  
turned off.

Other items:
1. Switching the delivery of GOES-16 satellite imagery in AWIPS-II from scp  
(ssh secure copy) to a LDM feed has caused multiple outages. Restarting the  
LDM seems to have fixed this problem. TAFB forecasters can now view the  
imagery in D2D. Currently, no GOES-16 imagery is available in N-AWIPS. TSB  
Developer Monica Bozeman will investigate.

An earlier outage of the CONUS sector on May 14th was because the satellite  
was operating in mode 4, which means 10 min full-disk imagery, no CONUS and  
no mesoscale domains.
1. Version 1.2 of the Wind Speed Probability (WSP) package, which includes  
updates to the track and error distribution coefficients (years 2012-2016  
for all basins) was implemented yesterday at 1634Z (12:37 pm EDT).

2. A Request for Change (RFC) to enable DBNet alerts on NHC's dbn1/2  
servers for the GFS ensemble spread and average output files for use by the  
reconnaissance aircraft targeting program will be implemented on Tuesday,  
May 23 by the NCO Dataflow group.
