Report from Computing Executive Group
Alastair met with Dave and around 25 PDRAs (Post-Doctoral Research Associates) to assertain their views on the School's computing provision. The following points emerged from the discussion:
Though the chatroom is a useful tool both for social interaction and for communicating on work matters, there is a concern that some important information which would be of use to all computing staff is not reaching as wide an audience as it should due to it only being mention in the chatroom. It is especially difficult to extract useful information from chatroom logs when returning from an extended period of holiday or illness. When wishing to propagate information, we should consider which methods of transmission are most appropriate.
Reports from units.
George warned that there may still be some issues with logrotate. Logs are retained on the loghost server for 120 days and there isn't an easy way to change this for individual logs
Topics for discussion
Each Unit reported on the lessons they had learned from the recent exercise simulating a flood in the Forum server room. The following is a distillation of the points which emerged during the discussion:
All units were encouraged to check Neil's cookie list for web services they are responsible for and to start considering what actions to take. This will be discussed further at the next meeting.
As mentioned above, Ian's proposals were accepted.
Deferred until the next meeting.
The next meeting will be on Wednesday 28th March 2012 in room 4.31
