Verification Testing

  • Andy and Akeem are moving to a new office today
    • OSX 10.10 jenkins build machine will be down for the day (cbt-d14-1)
  • Refimager is failing
    • Last clean tarball on RH6 was 4.7.118 (8/2/2016)
  • Tsdbaseline is passing on RH7 now
    • Should make it's way back to the critical tests list soon
  • Having some display issues on Osiris and the cluster when kicking off tests automatically
    • Akeem continues to work on this
  • Small issue with RH7 tarballs being produced - Darrell fixed this

Validation Testing

  • parallelized ia.statistics/imstat testing is underway (CAS-8783); what are the other three related multithreading tickets?




  • We have a nearly clean build right now. Outstanding changes:
    • Maybe a fix for the polarization calibration ticket.
    • EVLA change from Kumar. Will add code but make use non-default.
    • Asteroid models


  • C4R2.1 imaging pipeline testing in progress
    • most remaining pipeline tickets are web log improvement requests
    • still some concerns about memory consumption and HPC parallel mode execution
  • ALMA Cycle 4 data end to end tests in progress
    • reports of excessive deterministic flagging are under investigation


  • Report on ACDC visit to Socorro:
    • Furthered understanding of CARTA in talks with Jeff and Susan.
    • Developed to do list: build issues; taking over python interfaces; fixing testing
    • To do list sent to ShinFey. Wating on his response

  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
  • Lindsey Davis
    • implemented check source QA routine,evaluates position offsets and coherence and assigns a score
    • investigated efficiency issues in export / restore tasks with Brian and Stewart
    • responded to C4R2 testing issues as they arose
  • Pam Ford
    • Investigated CAS-8810 (Plotms plots scan which is flagged) - not a bug, averaging over scans
    • Tested Justo's fixes for CAS-8787 (excluding a baseline, now Resolved) and CAS-8018 (average channel number, now Under Test)
    • Added error message to indicate that plotms does not support old-format cal tables for CAS-2656 (plot SNR column, Under Test) and CAS-8380 (add plotcal axes to plotms, Under Test)
    • CAS-8493 (data shapes error in spw averaging) Resolved - catch Array errors and issue message that data shapes to be averaged do not conform

    • Minor fixes : restoringbeam info in pbcor's images, .pb generation for facetted mtmfs causing a segfault in the tests
    • User support emails + non casa work (student + talk prep)
  • Darrell Schiebel
  • Ville Suoranta
    • Rebuilt local Macports.
    • Worked on feature branches & smoke and regression tests on Bitbucket/Bamboo
    • Found & fixed a test framework bug that caused Linux tests to fail on Bamboo
    • Investigated and provided a workaround for test timeout issues on Osiris
    • Investigating and patching various Carta build issues
  • Julian Taylor
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
    • Mask related fix for tclean (CAS-7899)
    • Looked at one pipeline run where tclean reports divergence only in one of spws
    • Discussion on automask and worked on the documentation
