Subject: rampdown.pl was not running 

The crontab for op340m which runs various IFO maintenance activities has been set to the wrong path for the watchdog rampdown script since the CDS changeover.

This is a dangerous situation. With the watchdog thresholds set as high as 1000, the magnets can be broken if the new CDS has some mental problems. This kind of thing happened before at LHO (which is why Stan invented the watchdogs). Please try to make sure that the watchdog thresholds are not set that way - its our only defense against bad CDS.

I've now corrected the crontab. The watchdog thresholds are being stepped down every 30 minutes as before.

However, out test points are gone again, so who knows how things are behaving.
