The LBA Live Monitor uses a combination of MoniCA queries over the ASCII interface and static files uploaded by some stations to generate the web page found at http://www.narrabri.atnf.csiro.au/vlbi/lba_monitor.html. This page describes how to diagnose problems with monitoring on the live page, and how to fix them.
These observatories are queried directly by the webserver namoi (www.narrabri.atnf.csiro.au) over the MoniCA ASCII port. This method for monitoring should be extremely reliable.
These observatories are queried by the webserver namoi over the MoniCA ASCII port, but through two SSH tunnels.
ssh -L 8051:newsmerd:8051 -L 8052:newsmerd:8052 email@example.com -N -g
Please note that this command does need to be run from mentok. The command used for the Ceduna tunnel is:
ssh -L 8051:ops1cd:8051 -L 8052:ops1cd:8052 firstname.lastname@example.org -N -g
. Since you need to keep these sessions open for the monitoring to keep working, it is best to run them in a screen session.
