Notes: Humanities includes the Libraries and Museums.

Other Physical Sciences are Engineering, Materials and Earth Sciences.

Standard Users on Sable & Ermine includes undergraduates, and any postgraduates, staff and senior members who want a basic account, usually for email.

Other Academic Users includes Visiting Academics and members of other British Universities, and undergraduates on Vax and Convex.

Non-Academic Users includes the University Offices, Admissions Office, OUP, NAG and Commercial users.

OUCS Usage on Sable & Ermine has included a large job which ran in the background.

Ermine's 4 processors are each about 3x the power of each of Sable's 4.

Ermine came into operation during June 1996.

Notes and Abbreviations:

MBTI = Mean Time Between Interruptions to users' service, from whatever cause.

MTTR= Mean Time To Restore service to users.

Availability: "DEC"/ "Convex"/ "IBM" indicates the % lack of availability of service to users where DEC, Convex or IBM (as system maintenance/software contractors) are responsible for restoring service.

"Ov'al" indicates % availability to users overall (regardless of cause of unavailability).

"Prime Shift" indicates lack of availability from any cause during the weekday hours 8am to 6pm.
