ALMA CPM5 Meeting
- Having issues.
Make App should be fixed, need devel distribution, have a single version now.
OSX 10.11 Hardware in place, can start testing on it this week.
M100 Regression tests: runtime between normal (3 hours) and HPC (4 hours) tests are contradictory, since HPC should run faster
Serial and HPC have same speed in Garching
Warnings: Getting there
Sent an email to all interested people to have an HPC telecon this Thursday at 16:00 UTC. This is to go through the list of development items for 2016. The agenda is available in
I/O Optimization Project
Had a team meeting with Justo and Julian to consolidate the list of development items for the HPC project.
Started to define the project scope for the I/O Performance Tuning project. Kick-off meeting should also be this Thursday after the HPC telecon.
Investigated test_plotms failure
change in VIVB2 caused exception in plotms; Jim fixed
for this use case
still fails for plotms averaging (baseline & antenna) - array conformance error when averaging many rows into one. Emailed Jim.
CAS-2502 (highres=False in plotms does not work)
RTT - tested successfully by B&T group
Updated documentation XML files for CAS-2502 (remove highres "Always true for jpg and png") and CAS-7733 (add "must set selfscale=True" when using sharedaxis)
Lindsey reported iteration plots are blank except first one - rescheduled ticket
Fixed exporting iteration plots at screen resolution - BUT didn't work for grid - reverted code to do high-res exports only for now
CAS-1977 RTT (Set dpi, width x height for plotms exports)
Looking into an issue of msuvbin where sources outside the field image causes larger ripple
checked in a working naclean in deconvolver
looked at CAS-8160..which there were suspicion of mem alloc issues in Virtual model column...could not reproduce.
Tested the MakeApp from Darrell, make be fixed.
Justo González Villalba
Removed warnings from mstransform module
Fixed issue in mpi4casa related with iPython initialization at the servers
Implemented basic run-time re-configuration capabilities of
Provided feedback for TVI restructuring
Review ARTIST/XCLASS documentation
Susan Loveland: Carta Testing, Selenium Test Writing, and Bug fixes for layered views.
ALMA large cube memory use
Studied tclean memory profile + looked at code + discussions with KG.
Modified ordering of loops for channel chunking vs data I/O, eliminated a few
->get() calls from framework to prevent full image loads.
Found/fixed bug in memory release section of FTMachines. Channel chunking now has the expected memory profile.
TODO : Plumbing for correct modelvis prediction, study minor cycle mem profiles.
Some non-CASA work.
finished linux make application script
merged linux script into original OS X "make-app" script
modified script to create casaviewer distribution
started back with linux Structure101 (but license had expired)
Working on the OSX10.11
Worked on C++ unit tests. Converted some existing ones (and expanding test coverage) to Google tests
Looked at the tclean issue reported for the pipeline (CAS-8093). The problem may be in the data itself.
