  • LBTI wiki, data
  • TMS with numpy, sympy/mpmath - both agree in disagreeing with mathematica

  • some fun cross-compiling gdb and debugging OVMS, finding line from address (DqRtDmapRefresh +0xbc):
(gdb) info line DqRtDmapRefresh
Line 1752 of "DAQLibRTDMAP.c" starts at address 0xebbfc <DqRtDmapRefresh> and ends at 0xebc2c <DqRtDmapRefresh+48>.
(gdb) info line *0xebbfc+0xbc
Line 1763 of "DAQLibRTDMAP.c" starts at address 0xebca4 <DqRtDmapRefresh+168> and ends at 0xebcc8 <DqRtDmapRefresh+204>.
(gdb) x/i DqRtDmapRefresh+0xbc
0xebcb8 <DqRtDmapRefresh+188>:  lwz     r9,12(r31)
  • found OVMS problem, IT7133 fixed
  • GCS work
  • PCS work - unreported RPC errors (IT7484)
  • There is logic in git add(ed) files not showing in diff - consider you develop two changes in a single branch, and would like to split those. Just git add files touched in the first change, git diff to confirm your diff contains only what was changed in second, commit to branch, stash, move to another branch for the second change, stash pop.


  • worked briefly on the Fedora 28 install
  • LBTI data
  • GOES changes for big display
  • LBTI wiki web and user creation
  • AO data to Doug Miller (can I turn off the old machines)?
  • Cindy Windows problems (computer should be upgraded to Windows 10)
  • Dropped MCSPU network interface on for ARGOS
  • Particle monitor plugged in, but still not available. Talked to John and it wasn't high priority, so I would rather Leroy look through configuring it -- unless a better option presents itself.
  • Request for addition of various MGIO and LBTO related people to be able to monitor total mountain bandwidth.
  • dockerize the display a display runner
  • continue DNS configuration -- port to Docker.
  • continue cleaning up cron jobs.


  • Power plan options; should have clear plans to present this week
  • Synology drive upgrade
  • AzCam computer cleanup
  • Move data off of Synology volumes that we're replacing
  • Drives ordered; will probably not arrive this week
  • Watch LBTI data transfer with Elwood
    • Elwood stated that he is satisfied with the tools available to him re: verifying transfer
    • He is also very pleased with the transfer speeds
    • As of this morning they are using ~5TiB of the 10 we soft-allocated.


Last Week

  • Compiling list of tasks for OCS and LUCI to be prioritized, about to send email.
  • LUCI
    • 7431 - RTD not syncing/updating files / or GUI scheduler issues due to network/process misbehaving on backend?
    • 7473 - Unable to use AFC Align Pinholes to Align the Field Stop for N30 Camera
    • 6483 - LUCI "next file" sequence number corrupted in MySQL database
    • Coldheads telemetry gap analysis.
  • OT
    • 7201 placing of "WFSWait" command in MODS Imaging Scripts

This Week

    • Finish script that listens and writes to Journalizer events. (currently only hardcoded events)
    • Enable more fine grain logging of journalizer events, have to ability to turn it on/off on demand. By default will be off. LUCI typically logs messages to the database, except STDOUT and STDERR which are channeled to some Screen wrapping via the java Process class. I want to make sure I'm not creating a problem by adding more debugging.
