|WORKSTATION HARD DRIVE?
|Comm failure and solution
MAYBE IT'S OKAY, BUT THE WORKSTATION FOR ARMISS HAS A LOT OF NOOISE COMING OUT OF IT SOMETIMES.
The ppp link on the sun was failing to dial out because the swap space (/tmp on the sun) was full. This filled because there were several IDL jobs which were not exiting properly. The solution (thanks Gary) was to reboot the sun. We did this and transferred the last day's data by hand. Note that the 1299 serial link may timeout during this process so POP on the 1299 may need to be restarted (not this time). Can check by looking at the latest data time on the Zebra Data icon's "last data display".
