cdisko now supports report recording. These notes are mostly of a historical value. CJP 15-11-2007

if cdisko is unresponsive, try /etc/init.d/recorder_server restart

Remote recording

disko does not support remote recording (cdisko does and will be commissioned real-soon-now)

To do remote recording do the following.

  • Log into receiving recorder, e.g. mpvsi2, as vlbi:

–> > ssh vlbi@mpvsi2

  • Start the receiving program. You must create the data directory and cd into this first. E.g.

–> > mkdir /data/xraid0/v210a –> > cd /data/xraid0/v210a –> > vsib_recv

  • Log into recorder connected to vsic, e.g. mpvsi1, as vlbi:

–> > ssh vlbi@mpvsi1

  • Run the vsib_record

–> >vsib_record -x -t 6.5h -m 2 -o v210a-Mp -H mpvsi2-ext

  • If you wish to do a scheduled start (most useful at the beginning of a run)

–> >vsib_record -x -t 6.5h -m 2 -o v210a-Mp -H mpvsi2-ext -s 2007-06-20T10:00:00

  • At disk change, you will have to kill both processes (^C) and repeat the process, e.g create and cd to a new directory on the receiving end.

NOTE: When ssh'ing into the recorders from outside the observatory (e.g. into Mopra from Narrabri) the computer name must have an '-ext' added.
