sd pipeline issue revealed Cube resize error, created CAS-7488 for MSTransformBufferImpl bug
CAS-7511 (Resolved) - discussion of antenna selection syntax
Tested and Resolved:
CAS-7390 (Virtual model data), fixed related bug in plotms
CAS-7412 (Improve performance with subchunk counts)
creating VI and getting VisBuffer structure performance now comparable to 4.3, verified by Lindsey
Tested loading requested metadata axes only
no performance improvement, data cubes seem to be the big performance issue according to Jim
plotms always loads time, field, spw, channel, frequency, corr, scan, ant1, ant2, baseline, flag, observation, and intent axes
Plotms being tested by Drew Brisbin in CV
Fixed plotms bug with time- and channel-averaged weight and sigma axes (CAS-7118 and CAS-7119)
Made release-4_4 developer build for testing/patching
Finally built casa on OSX 10.10 for CAS-4592 and CAS-7246. HALLELUJAH
Investigated running plotms in parallel on same MS, created CAS-7504 for MSTransformIterator write-lock
Investigated plotms correlation selection issue discovered by Tak in CAS-7434, created CAS-7512 for MSTransformBufferImpl bug
Justo González Villalba
Further improved performance of MSTransformIterator initialization to be in line with the old plain VI/VBJim Jacobs
Fixed bug in frequency calculation for channel average
Minor fixes in connection with default virtual model data column
Tested OpenMP improvements introduced in the last casacore commits
ALMA Obs Mode Review
CARTA save/restore state
CAS-5689: Profile fitting incorrect for particular cube and settings.
CAS-7478: uvcontsub segv; unreproducible except with user's typo in fitspw specification (followup today)
CAS-7271: Mis-calibration occurred when field changes not recognized as "new cal", and gainfield='nearest' (fixed)
CAS-6995: 'nearest' interp in frequency mis-calculated for LSBs (fix pending)
Cal lib "quick reference" nearly ready for v4.4 testing (also a facility for translating old applycal parameters to callib)
Polarization and other user support for JAO, Socorro, Japan, etc.
Catching up on various writing projects: Summer School book Calibration chapter, Lin feed Poln Memo, prep for Interferometry and Calibration lectures at Canadian Workshop (August)
Progress on prototype for parallelized iteration control in tclean: existing serial, continuum and cube parallel imager, normalizer and deconvolver components now can plug into refactored framework. Focus next on iteration control.
Writing functional (python level) tests for tclean use cases and converting all existing tool level examples to task tests.
Other : Turned off more log messages from 'ia' tool use within old clean. Started build of release-4_4 on el6 desktop and got stuck. Went through Jeff's 4.5 todo list and gave tclean related feedback.
minor tweaks to mpi launcher (CAS-7415)
invalid timerange fixes to manual flag compression (CAS-7349)
setup serial vs parallel performance monitoring for alma cycle 2 testcase (CAS-7483)
filed casacore PR with booltobit performance improvement (CAS-7406, gh-101)
Makemask help doc update and some more testing to make sure everything is working as expected
Setjy bug fixes related follow-up discussions/testing
Found an issue with the task interface: setting in a global parameter can modify the default parameter behavior in subsequent task run with arguments inside if the global parameter is the task's sub-parameter and not explicitly set in the task command (e.g. setjy's fluxdensity parameter)
