Abstract

The text status reports will be removed. They have already been completely superseded by a binary version sent directly to the NCC and are now just excess baggage.

This text was extracted from a ASCII document.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 100% of the total text.

To help us expand our role as NCC, we will be changing the

status reporting facility of the IMP. The change will take place

within the next month and should be transparent to the hosts.

The text status reports will be removed. They have already

been completely superseded by a binary version sent directly to

the NCC and are now just excess baggage.

The status reports will remain with the statistics program

on fake host 3, but will no longer be affected by any of the

PARAMETER CHANGE parameters. This will prevent the Hosts from

inadvertently interfering with the operation of the NCC.
