The current in the bucking coil seems to really be falling according to Walt (that VSAM values rather than those from MCC are correct). Thus we have also started monitoring the B-Field inside the DIRC in case a corresponding drift appears there. None was observed before the end of the run.

Nicholas added ROM occupancy plots for each of the 6 ROMs to the fast monitoring.
