Alan,

Thanks for posting that. May I suggest:

- in recv.ini, the tmp_directory should be defined, and it should be in the
same disk partition as the received directories, so in your case something
like:

[parameters]
tmp_directory=D:&#92;temp

Hi David
In my instance all the tellicast stuff and receive folders are on the one physical hard drive, and nothing else.
The tmp directory is in the Tellicast folder therefore isn't specified.
Works very well.
Processed data goes to another hard drive and there is a separate system hard drive for Win 7 64 bit.
I had more or less the same with win xp
Agree about tidying the # lines.

Alan,

Thanks for posting that. May I suggest:

- in recv.ini, the tmp_directory should be defined, and it should be in the same disk partition as the received directories, so in your case something like:

[parameters]
tmp_directory=D:&#92;temp

Ensure the directory exists and has full access.

I would also remove all the commented out stuff from recv-channels.ini to make things clearer. You may find you have unexpected entries! For what it's worth, my own sample files look something like this:

http://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/recv.ini.txt
http://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/recv-channels.ini.txt

These files are for:
# EUMETCast directory: C:&#92;EUMETCast&#92;
# Received files: C:&#92;EUMETcast&#92;received&#92;
# In-reception files: C:&#92;EUMETcast&#92;temp&#92;
# 300 MB RAMdisk drive: Z:
# Only some sample channels are shown

If you can keep the EUMETCast data to a separate physical disk (as your drive D: may be) so much the better, but /don't/ use a separate partition on the same physical disk (e.g. another partition on the physical disk where your C:&#92;Windows&#92; resides - that just causes more disk head movement between the partitions. It is important to remove the catch-all [*] entry in recv-channels.ini, as you demonstrate, otherwise your system can easily become overloaded with unwanted data.

After a new install, I copy the recv.ini and recv-channels.ini to a safe location for a reference.

Cheers,
David

Chris,

You will find my information for Windows Vista and later here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/wxsat/Dexatek/RAMdisk.html

I hope you can read that across to Win-XP. There's also a somewhat older document which was published in the GEO Quarterly here:

Eumetsat website

Alan Banks <alan@...>
 

I have just spent the last two hours updating links from GEO site to new EUMETSAT site. I'm sure I've missed some. Links to some pdf files were well hidden in the new structure.
Glad the GEO site is fairly simple.
Irritating.

ANN: Switch your MSG Data Manager from MSG-3 to MSG-1 today!

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

A reminder to switch your MSG Data Manager from MSG-3 to MSG-1 after 08:15 UTC today (Monday, July 01) to ensure continued reception of full-scan Europe/Africa data - see:

http://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/News/DAT_2045911.html

Revert to MSG-3 after 09:15 UTC on Tuesday July 09. There are instructions here describing how to go from MSG-2 to MSG-3:

http://www.satsignal.eu/software/faq.htm#msg2-to-msg3

Use those instructions, but change from MSG-3 to MSG-1 today, and reverse that change next Tuesday.

David,

Meteosat 8 data will be disseminated between July 1 and 9 when
decontamination of Met-10 takes place. According to the Eumetsat web site
files will carry the MSG1 label.

Are you aware of any consequences for users of your programs or of actions
to be taken?

Cheers,
Ferdinand
=======================================

Ferdinand,

I'm expecting it to be just like we have to switch MSG-2 to MSG-1 at the moment for the 48-hour Rapid-Scan outage, except that it will be switching the prime MSG Data Manager from MSG-3 to MSG-1, and back again. This is described (in terms of the MSG-2 to MSG-3 transition) here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/software/faq.htm#msg2-to-msg3

With the RSS switch, only the SEVIRI (image) data is sent, and not the derived meteorological products but it seems that for this switch, both image and derived products will be available. See:

http://www.eumetsat.int/website/home/News/DAT_2045911.html

Bit of a pain, but it's only once a year.

Cheers,
David

Re: Eumetsat Web Site

James Brown
 

I agree.
I will now have to check all the links in the GEO site. Fortunately when
I changed the GEO site to php instead of html extensions there weren't
too many external links that would cause a problem. However I am running
two index pages in parallel both html and php as some linking to GEO
front page included the full extension to the index page.
Reminds me need to check on that!
Alan
Even one of the links on the weekly update e-mail today regarding the August 2014 transmission change is not quite pointing to the correct page.

Eventually found it, and it is marked as updated on June 24th, so not sure if that is more to do with the web site or the information.

The new Eumetsat Web Site due to be launched tomorrow appears to have been launched today, although requires further investigation to see if it has been fully launched.

New shortcuts will certainly be required !!

EUMETCast outage on 24 June 2013 - a note from EUMETSAT

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

I've just received this note from EUMETSAT:

=========================
Yesterday, 24 June 2013, there was an outage of EUMETCast between 08:46 and 09:41 UTC caused by an anomaly in the EUMETCast Administration Tool software. High availability services, e.g. SEVIRI L1.5, were interrupted for approximately 40 minutes, other data was buffered and then disseminated late.

Nominal timeliness was reached for the 0 degree Meteosat-10 mission at 10:12 UTC.
All services reached nominal timeliness around 11:00 UTC.

A software correction is in preparation and an operational workaround has been implemented to prevent a recurrence.

With best regards,

Kim-Hui Gaune
User Support Officer
User Support and Climate Service Division

Re: Data Outage (2nd reply !)

Douglas Deans
 

Thanks to everyone who replied. As well as problems with Eumetcast there was
some serious delays with Yahoo group mails today which may not yet be
resolved. Indeed I have just seen a mail from MSG-1 arriving 4/5 hours
late.

Regards
Ian.

================================================================

Yes my WSR was seriously delayed. There were warnings on the Yahoo site
that there are upgrading works being carried out with delays and some
services not available.

Too late to stop BT's 6 million customers being moved from Yahoo to a new
provider ! ..... and from what I hear rightly so.

Regards,
Douglas.

I take it others are seeing a complete data outage for the last 45 minutes

I have seen Tellicast go red once for a few seconds, but just want to check
the issue is not at my end.

I was away, but I see EUMETSAT e-mailed this to subscribers:

EUMETCast Meteosat 0 degree High Rate SEVIRI News

Seq Nr: 1

News information:
Total Eumetcast outage: Service interrupted between 08:50 and 10:00 UTC.
--------------------------------------------

You can usually check here:

http://www.satsignal.eu/mrtg/EumetcastEurope_throughput.php

but watch the date on the graphs as not everyone runs 365 days a year. I
gather it was an uplink server issue, which is currently being investigated.
Normally they have standby arrangements which automatically switch in.
