  • VE-246: Continue work on Matrix manager (IN PROGRESS)
  • VE-241: PFB for low bandwidth modes (IN PROGRESS)
  • VE-247: Developer testing of release candidate (IN PROGRESS)
  • VE-230: High time resolution modes (IN PROGRESS)

Story Details

VE-242: Continue work on coherent 32-channnel BOF files

  • Jason and Randy passed along files to Ryan for testing. Ryan needs to track down a system with a dealer/player or M&C installation suitable for testing. Perhaps install dibas code on reg_test.

VE-243: Update existing BOF files with delay registers and wrap behavior improvements

  • Luke is actively working on this but Ryan has not received a list of updated BOF files yet.

VE-244: ADC calibration for vegasr2-2

  • We believe this is complete but need to check with Jason. We are unsure which ROACH2 was being worked on. It would make more sense if this was devenvr2-2.

VE-245: Complete testing of GUPPI monitor on devenv-hpc1

  • Ryan was able to get as far as starting guppi_daq_server but the data stream did not seem to be formatted as expected.

VE-246: Continue work on Matrix-Manager Interface

  • Nearing completion. This encompasses an interface between the Manager and either vegas_hpc/guppi_daq and the Matrix.

VE-241: PFB for low bandwidth modes

  • Still working on data format issues in eight subband modes, and ensuring that integration times are calculated as expected. Joe hopes to complete testing by Monday.

VE-247: Developer testing of release candidate

  • Still in shake down

VE-230: High time resolution modes

  • Natalia has analyzed some test data taken on the noise diode and believes the data looked good.

VEGAS Pulsar Project Meeting - Sprint Planning: 2017 June 5th 2:00 - 3:00pm ET

Note: The team's "velocity" has been consistent at 11--13 points per sprint. We should aim for 12 points per sprint for planning purposes.

Backlog

  • Prepare a release candidate for the re-based VPM branch that can run spectral line modes as expected
  • Spectral line regression tests of release candidate
  • Various Matrix work

Critical Issues

  • M&C system and regression tests

New Stories

  • VE-222: Upgrade postprocessing scripts for multibank data
  • VE-252: Developer testing of release candidate
  • VE-253: Testing VPM modes with new manager
  • VE-256: Test new 32 channel BOF files
  • VE-257: High time resolution modes
  • VE-258: Low bandwidth PFB
  • VE-260: Complete Manager-Matrix integration
  • VE-261: Regression tests of release candidate
