Network Working Group Ellen Westheimer Request for Comments: 315 BBN NIC: 9345 March 8, 1972 Updates: 306

                        NETWORK HOST STATUS
 This RFC reports on the status of most Network Hosts from February 14
 to February 25.  On February 21 Massachusetts celebrated Washington's
 Birthday.  During these two weeks the MIT Artificial Intelligence
 (MIT-AI) PDP-10, Network address 134, became a Network User.
 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) on a regular basis
    for at least two weeks.  Included here are:
    Network
    Address          Site            Computer
    -------          ----            --------
    134              MIT-AI          PDP-10
     13              Case            PDP-10
     15              Ames/(Paoli)    ILLIAC/(B6500)
    2) Hosts which are currently intended to be users only.  Included
    here are the Terminal IMP's which are presently in the Network
    (AMES, MITRE, NBS 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
    Address          Site            Computer
    -------          ----            --------
     7               Rand            IBM-360/65
    73               Harvard         PDP-1
    12               Illinois        PDP-11
    19               NBS             PDP-11
 The tables on the next two pages summarize the Host status for this
 period.
 _____
 *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.

 where
 D = Dead (Destination Host either dead or inaccessible [due to
     network partitioning or local IMP failure] from the BBN Terminal
     IMP.)
 H = 1/2 Open (Destination Host opened a connection but then either
     immediately closed it, or did not respond any further.)
 O = Open (Destination Host opened a connection and was accessible to
     users.)
 R = Refused (Destination Host returned a CLS to the initial RFC.)
 T = Timed out (Destination Host did not complete the ICP and open a
     connection within 60 seconds.)
 _____
 *The only service currently offered by the UCLA IBM-360/91 is a
 Network Job Service (NETRJS), however, the BBN Terminal IMP is not
 equipped to test NETRJS.  We are assuming that initial connection to
 the NETRJS logger indicates that NETRJS is also functioning.
