Memory Node killing scripts

To kill a node

On Nemo in /root/root_tools/ is memory-test.tar. Extracting this on /data on a slave node will unpack all that is nessary to test the machine for possible MCE errors.

This will include floders cpu1 and cup2.

Fromt the directory that the scripts are unpacked running:

# ./memory_killer.sh

will run too instances of the scripts and detach them from the current treminal.

After each loop of the script a time stamp will be dumped to cpu*/node_killer/time_specs.

The loop will end only after an MCE error or killing the lalappspower pids (their will be 2).
