Parsers built for GLTG


The legacy repository for GLTG parsers is located in  Some of the parser sources have been updated recently and some of them have not been touched for years.

These should be migrated to on update

Legacy Data Files

Overview of GLTG parsers

  • nebula instance:
  • user = parsers (no password)
  • root directory = /home/parsers
  • directory structure
    • 4 directories for 4 systems
      • 3 parsers for 3 sources for each system
  • run parsers
    • each system has a shell script that runs all three sources sequentially
    • for each source all data is parsed first, then a subprocess runs the binning with a wait on subprocess until finished.  When done the next source parser starts.  No timeout between source parsers. 
  •  cronjobs
    • get greon data from
      • runs in as marcuss user (this can be changed but for now it is due to permissions on loggernet on gltg)
      • /home/marcuss/

        • uses rsync to pull data to /home/marcuss/data/greon/ then copies to/home/parsers/greon-data/

    • parsers
      • 4 lines for 4 systems

General processes that take significant time

System Parsing Times

Here the each source parses the data then waits for the subprocess that bins the data until finished.  When the binning finishes, the the next source parser starts.  No timeout between parsers.

GLM Parsing Time

GLM Zooplankton/Phytoplankton ingestion timing for Production server (

  • Update Statistics: About an hour for all sensors. (api/sensors/update/).
  • Binning by season
    • Ran the following endpoint for all 3 parameters simultaneously:
      • /api/cache/season/parameter-name
    • Took about 9 hours for all to complete.
  • Number of Datapoints:
    • Zooplankton-biomass: 3004
    • Zooplankton-biovolume: 3004
    • Phytoplankton-biovolume: 1930

  • No labels
