     * If the recording lags the summary file significantly (several 10s of gigabytes and backlog is growing), it might be an [[operations:​documentation:​pcfs_rfpic|rfpic]] issue. The recording does not start in time because it is waiting for the report from Monica. In this case you shall restart the Rxmon, at it is described in the [[operations:​starting_monitoring_9.10.5#​rfpic_problem|Other things to watch out for: "​rfpic"​ problem]]     * If the recording lags the summary file significantly (several 10s of gigabytes and backlog is growing), it might be an [[operations:​documentation:​pcfs_rfpic|rfpic]] issue.

   * **Tsys: S-band Tsys OK**\\ Check recent output from a systemp12 command (don't execute it unless the Mark5 is NOT recording) to see if the S-band Tsys is within the expected range (an indication will be given in brackets, but 80 to 100 K is typical). The monit3 window shows the most recent values and [[operations:​documentation.test_tsys|here is how to interpret them]]. Note that at Ke, continuous Tsys measurements are made during scans and the monit3 window updates every 30s with these values. However you can obtain a Tsys value at any time at ke with the systemp12 command (see also these notes on [[operations:​documentation.contcal|Continuous Calibration]]). Make a note in the log if it is outside this range. If it persists, or the values vary wildly, there may be a problem.   * **Tsys: S-band Tsys OK**\\ Check recent output from a systemp12 command (don't execute it unless the Mark5 is NOT recording) to see if the S-band Tsys is within the expected range (an indication will be given in brackets, but 80 to 100 K is typical).
