Abstract

Beginning with this RFC, BBN will report on the status of most Network Hosts approximately once every two weeks. The information for these reports will be gained from talking to people at each site, and from experimental "data". These data will be the results of daily attempts to log into each of the Hosts which might be accessible to a Network user; the attempts will have been made from the BBN prototype Terminal IMP at a random time each weekday.

SITE STATUS

Beginning with this RFC, BBN will report on the status of most

Network Hosts approximately once every two weeks. The information

for these reports will be gained from talking to people at each site,

and from experimental "data". These data will be the results of

daily attempts to log into each of the Hosts which might be

accessible to a Network user; the attempts will have been made from

the BBN prototype Terminal IMP at a random time each weekday.

Several Hosts are currently excluded from the daily testing. These

Hosts fall into two categories:

1) Hosts which are not expected to be functioning on the Network

as servers (available for use from other sites) for at least a

month. Included here are:

Network Site Computer

Address

71 Rand PDP-10

74 Lincoln TX2

11 Stanford PDP-10

13 Case PDP-10

14 Carnegie PDP-10

15 Paoli B6500

2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only. Included

here are the Terminal IMPs presently in the Network (AMES, MITRE,

and BBN*). This category also includes the Network Control Center

computer (Network Address 5) which is used solely for gathering

statistics from the Network. Finally, included among these Hosts

are the following:

Network Site Computer

Address

7 Rand IBM-360

73 Harvard PDP-1

12 Illinois PDP-11

The tables on the next two pages condense the information on Host

status for September 13 through September 24.

________________

* The BBN Terminal IMP (Network Address 158) is a prototype, and as such

is frequently not connected to the Network, but being used to refine and

debug the Terminal IMP programs.
