Starting MONICA

MONICA allows you to select, monitor and log many monitor points at the observatories. It's especially useful when diagnosing problems or monitoring things that are only important on some occasions (e.g. wind conditions at Hobart on a stormy day).

To start monica:

  • Open a terminal window on ops-serv2 and type ./
  • Then choose the server you want (there's one for each site, plus one local one on ops-serv2 for network monitoring)
  • You can then set up displays of monitor points.

One thing worth starting is the network connection monitor on ops-serv2. To do this, choose ops-serv2 as the server when you start the client, then choose Navigator → Ops → Ping. You'll see the current status of the connection (as determined by a 'ping' response) plus a graph showing the status over the past hour. You can change what's monitored, for how long, how much history etc by changing the configuration in the “Point Table” and “Time Series” tabs.
