Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
1) TSB is continuing to look into the GOES imagery retrieval code, and will
provide TAFB with proper instructions and guidance on if there is a certain
order that images need to be retrieved in for future reference.
1) HSU had issues with editing and transmitting the Atlantic GTWO
yesterday. To resolve this, Doug Gaer restarted the ypbind process on
nhc-lx-comp01. To help prevent these issues in the future, Doug has changed
the permissions on the XGTWO VGF files and subdirectories to 666 and 777,
respectively. According to Matt Sardi, the NIS replacement RFC was only for
workstations, we will still need to untangle the ypbind/NIS setup on the
servers which is a much more complicated task to be reserved for after this
season is over.
2) TSB is continuing to investigate the dropouts on the satellite strip
images available on the www2. After an initial look at the code, signs
point to this development code is using only the local dish GOES-E feeds
and not connected to the official satellite pull crons. Therefore,
significant work may need to be done to modify the scripts to use the
NESDIS datasets instead of the local data which is subject to the dropouts
HSU has been seeing. Since this process also needs to be migrated to work
for GOES-16 in the near future, this item may have to be added to the TSB
long term development list.
3) HSU cannot print from the Pacific N-AWIPS workstation. TSB and NCO will
4) TSB and NCO are continuing to experiment with the ASCAT issue on the
Atlantic NAWIPS workstation. Turns out that he ACAT data displays just fine
on Unidata's version of 7.4.0, which Doug downloaded and built on on his
workstation as a test. We think this is likely a build environment vs.
source code issue, will continue working on this this week. As a
workaround, Dave Zelinsky set up a remote display in WS7 so you can see the
ASCAT at that desk.
1) The NCEP network issues should be resolved at this time. If you continue
to see issues connecting to the network please notify TSB and/or the SDM
2) A GOES-16 ABI calibration scan will be performed on October 5-6, 2017,
from 1600-0000 UTC in which a 30-second MESO collect will be utilized for 8
hours over the Baja peninsula. The MESO products generated during this scan
will be available to users, but neither MESO-1 or MESO-2 will be available
for request during this time.
