And how many of these are listed in the RHESSI flare list?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 9 3 0 0
And how many had EXCELLENT coverage?
Flares above B, C, M, X class were 4 1 0 0
There were RHESSI flares/GOES flares 17 / 20 over the time range 21-Feb-17 28-Feb-17
Memory seems steady at ~25% at end of pass daily set.
Decimation was normal/vigorous. [Why not quiet/vigorous, so we do not decimate?]
BGS station is still in the red for downlink. Still unclear what the issue is. This means we never know when what the monitor rates are until a few days after the fact, unless we specifically ask for VC2 dumps. Perhaps we sould have them automatically while BGS is down?
D3 and D6 are on. Cryocooler power is still at 75W.
From Nicole's notes last week: The background flux is up at 12%, and the out shutter is set to ~15%. We still have margin, but Ops suggest that we adjust this. The idea is that we will raise the thin shutter out threshold to 5% above the current deadtime, so we will raise it to ~17%. ==> I have seen almost 16% on the status page.

D3 rear continues to have issues with Livetime dropping to 0% at times. Since we are maxed out on the threshold the only knob we have left to turn is the HV, and for the sake of keeping the front segments operating well we decided to keep the HV at the present level.
D6 front fast threshold was increased from 0x80 to 0x90 on Tuesday Feb 21
