Weekly meeting to keep the DM leadership team coordinated, informed, and in agreement on the vision, priorities, and challenges facing DM construction, including surfacing and resolving issues and ambiguities needing our attention. The goal of this meeting is to provide information and decisions that help each one of us better direct our own (or our team's) activities.
Guidelines: Propose items in line with the meeting rationale (see above); include as much information in the agenda notes; summarize, don't go into details while on the call; maximize time available for discussion.
LCR-908 (keep all releases spinning): Included discussion of the interpretation of an LSR-level requirement to make (old) data recomputable on demand. Do we already have to do this? Requires a substantive intra-DM discussion. Mario Juric: we have promised this to users.Gregory Dubois-Felsmann: we have not adequately costed a requirement to maintain a service that can run DR1 code in Year 11 to regenerate non-persisted data products on demand. There is no debate that we are required to maintain enough information (data, code, calibrations) to permit a motivated party to set up the recomputations.
Proposed change request to keep Processed Visit Images (PVIs, a/k/a calexps) on disk for active releases: Current baseline is to keep only most recent 30 days and recreate others on demand. Recreation on-demand requires staging raw data from tape and then reprocessing through at least the single-visit level of processing. Latency for a request could be 10s of minutes, more depending on demand and on contention for tape drives. Need to estimate demand.
Unknown User (ciardi) to prepare the science case for PVI storage. NCSA will provide an initial sizing estimate.
Proposed change request to keep HeavyFootprints on disk for active releases: Current baseline is that these are discarded after processing and must be recomputed by re-running deblending. No clear statement in our design that a HeavyFootprint-recomputation service will be provided.
Jim Bosch and DRP to prepare the science case and estimate the amount of storage required.
Beth Willman (at CCB meeting last week): Change requests should be submitted before May in order for them to be taken into account in the operations proposal.
IVOA in Shanghai - Fritz Mueller wants Kenny Lo and Brian Van Klaveren to attend and ...
Fritz Mueller will write a justification for this travel (IVOA Shanghai).
DMLT F2F meeting - early May in Seattle? There is a PST meeting scheduled for May 8 and 9 in Seattle, so maybe we can work around this since staff from the East coast will be flying in for this meeting.
Unknown User (lpetrick) will send out a Doodle poll today to capture everyone's availability the first two weeks of May. Here are the poll results:
