I'll talk about how the data collect helped the center get through a heat wave in the Berkeley area. This is significant since Berkeley computing center does not have any mechanical cooling and relies on the external air temperature and water supply. Talking about what data we thought we needed and what data we did need and how the idea of saving all the data and collecting as much as we can actually helped us in the lesson learned sessions after the event.
