The LBA monitor pages (http://www.atnf.csiro.au/cgi-bin/vlbi/lba_monitor.pl) allow users around the array to check the position of all antennas in one place
For Hobart and Ceduna these run off the standard livepage database. If for some reason they aren’t updating, here is what you have to do :
ls -l *.txt and see if the date/time on the mt_pleasant_26_lba.txt or ceduna_30_lba.txt is in the last minute or two (alternatively
ps -ef | grep make, to see if the process make_lba2.pl is running)
If you need to restart the script :
- su to root
Then wait a second or two and check if the appropriate .txt files are being generated in the directory above.
