Pleased with the performance of the NVMe filesystem. Not yet able to distinguish its performance in the Qserv context from that of the SATA SSD RAID filesystem, though lower-level tests showed a clear difference.
Suspecting that the NVMe advantage mainly shows up in heavy parallel read situations and we are not really exploring that corner of the phase space.
WISE loading and indexing is now complete through the first-year NEOWISE(r) data.
Igor Gaponenko will produce a short writeup summarizing the tables loaded and the small differences from their materialization at IRSA.
Schema annotation not yet loaded for WISE.
Needed for metaserv
Will review the (excellent) WISE documentation for guidance.
This feature could be implemented without any immediate impact on space requirements, and the sign of the longer-term impact on space is difficult to estimate.
The constraining factor is the NCSA staff time required to implement the feature and its relative priority compared to other things. For now the NCSA team management has determined that this is a "nice to have", not a priority, and that it will not be implemented in the near future. This can always be re-discussed at need among T/CAMs.
