In 2019 I'm reading one RFC a day in chronological order starting from the very first one. More on this project here. There is a table of contents for all my RFC posts.

Network status

RFC-362 is titled “Network Host Status”. It's authored by Ellen Westheimer of BBN and dated June 28, 1972.

The technical content

This is another report from BBN on the status of various ARPANET hosts in the same series as RFC-353, 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 June 5 to June 16:

One TIPs came online in this period, at ARPA itself in Alexandria, VA. Again, there are not any notable changes in network host site uptime during this period compared to previous ones.


Ellen Westheimer would produce just a few more of these reports before leaving BBN on August 4, 1972 to go back to school, as reported in her final RFC, RFC-376.
