Sysman meeting at Cambridge followed by the SouthGrid Technical meeting, shared support was discussed and generally agreed, but needs to be formalised and put in place at Birmingham. RALPPD were not there to discuss.
Pete had another meeting with the Oxford Campus Network guys, who have been doing some tests and managed to get better through put by tweeking the kernel. It is now thought that the change that happened on August 15th may have increased the latency between sites and this may be the cause of the reduced bandwidth.
Further tests will be done.
