S4PM 4.5.1 RELEASE NOTES
June 3, 2003
To support the Master Change Log in OPS mode, String Master is
configured in OPS to use the new -T option which causes a Trouble Ticket
to be submitted every time it is run. The user running String Master
will be prompted for a userid and password so that a TT can be
submitted. The userid should be that of the person running String Master
(i.e. Don't use 's4pmops'). The password requested will be the
corresponding password for that userid's UNIX account on g0mss10.
The Specify Data configuation files have moved into a subdirectory
under the specify_data directory named, specify_data_cfg. The purpose
was to shield them from accidental deletions.
When QC is turned on in an instance, PGEs may be configured to fail
in Run PGE when an output product doesn't pass QC checking (such as not
being the correct size). In such a case, not all products may be bad,
just one or a few. To allow the remaining good granules to get exported
to the ECS archive and be used in downstream processing, click on the
'QC Continue' button in the TkJob GUI. The bad granules will be blocked
from export and downstream processing while the good ones will not be
If receive_pan.pl is run with the -p off option, Production History
tar files will not be exported to the ECS archive. Operationally, this
may be done in some S4PM instances to increase throughput. Check the
station.cfg file in the Receive PAN station to view what the current
Subscription notifications for short PMCO_HK or PMCOGBAD granules
received in sub_notify will trip a failure (as is currently done for
MODIS L0 data). The short-granule workorder can be forced through
sub_notify if need be.
Detailed File Changes
Modified to make the links to the Specify Data configuration files
in the specify_data_cfg subdirectory rather than in the station
Modified the linking in the Trigger PGE station so that it
correctly links the Specify Data configuration files now that they
Added a step so that if QC checking is turned on, a QC failure
handler will be added to the Run PGE station.
Added a line to create the specify_data_cfg subdirectory under the
specify_data directory to house the Specify Data configuration files.
Added a line to include a link to failedQC_handler.pl in the Run
- Extended the "ragged/short" granule exception to include PMCO_HK
