RFC-353 is titled “Network Host Status”. It's authored by Ellen Westheimer of BBN and dated June 12, 1972.
The technical content
This is another report from BBN on the status of various ARPANET hosts in the same series as RFC-344, RFC-342, RFC-332, RFC-330, RFC-326, RFC-319, RFC-315, RFC-306, RFC-298, RFC-288, RFC-287, RFC-267, RFC-266, RFC-255, RFC-252, RFC-235, and RFC-240.
The numbers, from May 22 to June 2:
- 45 dead
- 73 open
- 10 half open
- 12 timed out
Three TIPs came online in this period: Fort Belvoir in Fairfax, VA; the Seismic Array Analysis Center in Alexandria, VA; and the National Oceanic Analysis Agency in Boulder, CO. Online status across the network hasn't really changed since the last few reports.
