The FSSSlowServo.pl now seems to be holding the NPRO PZT to ~6 V. I twiddled the PID settings a little bit to make sure nothing was squirrelly. Seems OK. Time constant of the loop is ~1 minute.

As a reminder, op340m runs our autoburt for all the FE machines, VME IOCs, does the watchdog threshold rampdown, and also the RefCav and NPRO temperature control.

 We had fiddled with the scripts/general/scripto_cron script to try and get the MC auto locker working on ottavia, but in doing so broke op340m's reliance on it to run it's cron jobs, like FSSSlowServo.

I've reverted scripto_cron to its original state, and the FSS slow servo starts up again.  

However, scripts like this that we want to always have on seem to be a better fit, to me, for the init system, like we do with daqd and nds on the FB. op340m's inittab looks different than what I'm used to, so I'm not making any changes; this is just a thought. 

MC autolocker is still being ran from an Ottavia GUI terminal; I'll try to get it consistently running on megatron, as suggested in  ELOG10039, now that caget/caput issues seem to be sorted. 

Addendum: I've changed the MC auto locker script to have megatron as its host. Haven't yet gotten it to run automatically; it's running in a detached tmux terminal. I'll finish it up tomorrow.
