keyword=advice about hac
I got asked about hac problems....
To keep hac performing reasonably, I think its important
to minimize the number of windows (especially graphics)
and processes. E.g. don't run too many screens from
your offices. I also noticed sometimes many copies of
the same process running, probably spurious. You can
clean them up with "kill" if you are sure it won't hurt.
Alternatively we could reboot hac if everyone is sure it
won't hurt. As I look now, however, the process list is
fairly small, presumably people cleaned up after I phoned
the counting room.
To grab a screen, use adaql1. First minimize number of
graphics. Then from hac, type "xhost +". Then "telnet
adaql1", and in adaql1 set the DISPLAY environment to hac.
Then run halog as usual.
