March of the fibre...

The new ScotGrid cluster was connected directly by fibre from the Nortel switch stack down to the campus WAN router this morning. This cuts out 10m of Cu and a hop through an old baystack router. David reports there was ~2 minutes of network outage, which hopefully no one noticed.

This should open the way to getting a dedicated 1Gb link right to SJ5.

We now want to
  1. Retest bandwidth to check nothing's broken
  2. Move the gridmon box into the new cluster area
Right, come on LHC, where's that data...
