Comment: Added smoke test and maintenance.


This processing is performed on Archive Center compute and storage resources.  These are likely to be separate from the Alert Production resources.

Smoke Test

Each day, before observing begins, the DM-derived systems will be used to perform a final pre-observing checkout.  This will ideally use image data retrieved from the Camera Data System, processing it all the way through to alert generation using the production Alert Production hardware and software (although not actually generating alerts, of course).  Automated checks will then recommend whether to continue with normal observing.


In addition to the above, the DM-derived systems have an allocation each day for maintenance time.
