IMP System Change Notification

------------------------------

During the week of 16 August, we installed a new version of

the IMP system, version 2505. The new version incorporated three

principal changes:

1) The number of hosts the system can handle was increased

from three to four. Although this caused a rather large

internal change to the IMP, the only external effects of

the change are the presence of a new status light [light

8 monitors Host 4], and the lengthening of the 10-second

and snapshot statistics.

2) The host handling routines were modified to gather more

accurate and voluminous statistics on host usage of the

network, and report them to NCC.

3) The 10-sec. statistics were changed to measure time for

the host "round trip" statistic in units of 800 rather

than 100 microseconds.

It is not anticipated that the new system should have any

direct effect on the hosts.
