Computing clusters / data facilities

  • Rubin construction effort at NCSA will be shutting down 15 August 2022. Machines will be shipped out. A few people from NCSA will continue into LSST Operations. We will want to migrate work. Datasets will be migrated in a planned manner
  • SLAC is looking to be ready at end of July. SLAC will do full reprocessing at HSC PDR3. SLAC USDF will support commissioning activities. Not exactly clear when AuxTel data processing will transition to USDF.
    • USDF has understanding that it is responsible for commissioning, including AuxTel
  • Data Previews at IDF
  • Prompt Processing Prototype at IDF. Mainly for development purposes with intent to switch to using USDF.
  • Relationship with Antu
  • Colin Slater Follow up with Fritz to check status of USDF readiness for AuxTel data  

CI status, bugs, issues of the week

  • Piff turn on resulted in small changes in metric values
  •  Most metric values changed between 30 and 31 March.
  • Questions of exactly what changed and how would we know. Star selection? Measurements of photometry? We currently don't have quick ways of diagnosing.
Faro Development status 
  • Spring 2022 epic  DM-33385 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Backlog epic:  DM-29525 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Progress on conversion to parquet
  • Status of DM pipeline tickets
    • Bug in the application of zeropoints to source catalogs resolved DM-34019 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • Feature: Photometric and astrometric corrections applied to source catalogs DM-33959 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Performance metrics to support AuxTel imaging campaigns
    • Example diagnostics from image quality team
    • More ideas for single-visit performance metrics starting to collect in FAFF context
    • Comparison with metadata and pixel-level image data? In a commissioning context, there are specific drivers for automated analyses that compare quantities from source catalogs and other sources

Data processing campaigns  

  • RC2/DC2 reprocessing epic : DM-26911 - Getting issue details... STATUS

  • AuxTel  (Erik Dennihy )
  • AP/DiffIm
  • Erik developed a workflow - a ticket is written prior to each run, lays out scheduler conditions, etc. Followup ticket in SITCOm prj. to track the details - source collections, etc. 
    • Example ticket of imaging survey observing requests - CAP-868 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • Example ticket of imaging survey data processing - SITCOM-253 - Getting issue details... STATUS


Potential co-working session ideas here

Next meeting  

Faro work planning meeting is scheduled for next week.  Please add your thoughts to 2022-04-12 Science Verification - Planning Meeting Agenda and Meeting notes so that we can make most efficient use of the meeting time
