Subject: Local EPICS7.0 installed on megatron 

[Jon, gautam]

We found that the caput commands were taking much longer to execute on megatron than on pianosa (for example). Suspecting that this had something to do with the fact that megatron was using EPICS binaries from the shared NFS drive which were compiled for a much older OS, I installed the latest stable release of EPICS on megatron. The new caput commands execute much faster. I also added the local EPICS directory to the head of the $PATH variable used by the MC autolocker and FSS Slow scripts, so that they use the new caput command. But mcup is still slow - maybe my new path definition isn't picked up and it is still using the NFS binaries? To be looked into...

There were a bunch of medm processes stalled on megatron (connected with screenshot taking). To see if they were interfering with the other scripts, I killed all of the medm processes, and commented out the line in the crontab that runs the screenshots every 10 mins. Let's see if this improves stability.
