Normalized priority, Jeff discussed with team members.
Still some ambiguity.
Still need to have a team review.
Enter into JIRA soon
managed to do large mosaic test last week. Identified issues and solved a number of them.
First time I run successfully a cycle 2 data reduction script using MMS, mstransform and mpi. The script performs the following steps: importasdm, flagging, wvrgcal, generation of Tsys and ant tables, applycal, split science spws out, plotms, flagmanager, bandpass and gaincal calibrations, applycal and a last split of the corrected column. Issues found during these tests:
cycle 2 scripts use the analysisUtilities packages which is huge (~46000 lines). I have found issues with tables left open in the cache, which seem to be fixed in the latest version of this file on the functions used by this reduction script.
The functions in the aU script do not use local versions of the tools. There are inumerous calls to tb.open in there. Eventually one of them is left open.
All the calls to the aU script are run sequentially.
The successful run with MMS was done without the use of the analysisUtilities.
The cycle 2 scripts use flagcmd to apply the online flags, which is not parallelized. They should use flagdata in list mode instead.
CAS-7037 (Resolved) - Fixed incorrect units for velocity axis in plotms
CAS-7007 (plotms Done) - Added warning to user when all data is flagged and therefore not plotted by default in plotms; reassigned to Michel by Jeff
CAS-7029 - Found issue in VI/VB in which two axes selected in plotms which both depend on azelUT time (Azimuth, Elevation, HourAngle) will only update the data for the first axis; sent email to Jim
Worked on multi-rater PEP for former boss. Ugh.
This week: MAC tickets for release.
profiling mms; open file fix. Ger's fix was slow, so testing alternatives.
Justo González Villalba
Implemented support for writing output SIGMA_SPECTRUM in mstransform
Investigated issues related with ALMA Cycle-2 parallel run tests
Now working to add weighted channel average in mstransform
Plotms: CAS-7046, CAS-7050, found and fixed bug with legend on overlay plots.
Worked on clean-up of Carta state issues.
Replied to "(CAS-5879) include pixel rms in imfit fitting" which apparently still has blocker status and still hasn't been tested even though I committed code for this more than 10 months ago. Suggest that testing assignments need to be reviewed more frequently and reassigned as necessary to prevent situations like this; I've seen it happen more than once that a ticket languishes for months waiting for testing by someone who rarely seems to have time to do it.
Worked on stats framework implementation.
"Polarization" lecture at EVLA Data Reduction Workshop
Some plotms discussions with Pam
Continued discussions with Justo on channel averaging in TVI
User support at DRW
Issues in importasdm, lazyfiller doesn't work under OSX. Michel is now looking into the problem.
bdf flags now work on sd data, fixed on trunk and release branch.
wvrgcal fixes, but may not go into release branch. reduce size of cal tables.
No new development. statwt unit test fix, other small bugs in setjy (still need to merge to release branch) problem with dictionary return, fluxscale issue identified at the data reduction workshop, etc.
