NETWORK HOST STATUS
This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from
July 31 to August 4.
Several Hosts are currently excluded from the daily testing
as they are presently intended to be users only. Included here
are the Terminal IMPs, which are presently in the Network (AMES,
MITRE, RADC, NBS, ETAC, USC, GWC, NOAA, SAAC, ARPA, 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
Address Site Computer

19 NBS PDP-11
23 USC IBM-360/44
The tables on the next two pages summarize the Host status
for this period.
NOTE: Ellen Westheimer left BBN to return to school on August 4.
We therefore will discontinue the publication of these summaries.
It is my understanding that UCLA-NMC is considering the publica-
tion of similar, although more detailed, survey data in the near
future; I hope that data will serve in lieu of these reports. In
addition, of course, MIT-DMCG has had survey information available
on line for some time (see RFC #308, NIC 9259.)

*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.
