Subject: Get 40m data using NDS2 and Python 

Minute trend data seems not available using the NDS2 server. Its super slow using dataviewer from the control room.

Did some digging into the NDS2 config on megatron. It hasn't been updated in 2 years.

All of the stuff is run by the user 'nds2mgr'. The CronTab for this user was running all the channel name updates and server restarts at 3 AM each day; I've moved it to 5:05 AM. I don't know the password for this user, so I just did 'sudo su nds2mgr' to become him.

On megatron, in /home/nds2mgr/nds2-megatron/ there is a list of channels and configs. The file for the minute trend (C-M-ChanList.txt), hasn't been updated since Nov-2015. ???
