Re: Roll-out of new EUMETCast Client Software (Tellicast), EKU hardware and drivers from 22 Feb

David J Taylor
 

Dear All

Up to now we have worked with 32Bit TC/EKU software even under 64Bit GNU/Linux.
The new native 64Bit GUN/Linux TC/EKU software seems to be a real step forward.
I now have for the first time an EUMETCast receiver for T1 + T2 that works in
a decent way *without* using a RAM disk even on my ancient PC hardware.

PC 10 year old Fujitsu Siemens P7935 8GB RAM. OS Devuan 2.0.0 amd64 GNU/Linux.
Receives Basic + HVS-1 + HVS-2 with a TBS-6903X card and processes on the fly
all Sentinel-3A and Sentinel-3B OLCI EFR as original, normalized and equalized.

Exports all files via NFS for special processing with EUMETCastView or PyTroll.

Cheers,
Ernst
============================

Ernst,

It will be interesting to see when/if Windows users get a 32-bit version. As far as I know we only have a 32-bit version at the moment.

Cheers,
David

It is my understanding that for Windows you have 32Bit and 64Bit versions of the new EKU software but only one 32Bit *.msi installer for the TC-client. So this most probably contains a 32Bit version of the TC-client only. Under GNU/Linux (according to the Readme) you *must* have the 64Bit EKU software installed to make the 64Bit TC-client work. Not sure you can use the 64Bit EKU software for a 32Bit TC-client under Windows. If not EUMETSAT should/will? deliver a native 64Bit TC-client for Windows too. Maybe OPS knows more ...

Cheers,
Ernst

i run the new 64-bit EKU Software with the new 32-bit TC-Client on Windows 10 without Problems.

Ernst,

Yes, you are correct about the 32/64-bit eToken installer. I didn't change my eToken software on the basis of either "if it works, leave it" or "laziness". Or both!

It's just a 32-bit client which is supplied. A 64-bit driver is what I'm using for the eToken software right now, so either that or Windows knows how to translate the 32-bit calls from TelliCast into 64-bit functions in the driver. A lot of software is like that.

David

When showing the NOAA20 VIIRS band on the 3D globe with all show all segments, is there a way to separate ascending from descending passes? I must be missing something because with all the overlaps I can't find a way to switch off one set or select only descending for example.

James when there is a lot of segments I switch off 'show all segments' and then run through them all by using the right hand scroll on the 3D map. The number that show each time is dictated by the number entered in the setting 'show number of segments in satellite path'. I have it set to ten. So as you scroll one comes off and the next one comes on. I find that works really well and very quickly.
You cannot as such select only ascending or descending (as far a I know !) but the above lets you get to what you want speedily as it runs through each orbit. Very useful.

Regards,
Douglas.

Sentinel 3B SLSTR

Ian Deans
 

The above data Level-2 Sea Surface Temperature products for Sentinel 3B was due to start today 12/3/2019 on E2H-S3B-04 but as yet I have seen no data.

I assume no one else is seeing this data and the start date has simply been delayed.

GOES-16 and GOES-17 stopped after 14:00?

David J Taylor
 

I'm hoping it's not just me, but GOES-16 and GOES-17 data stopped after the 14:00 instalment. I thought someone might have mentioned that, or is it another scheduled outage I've forgotten about!

It didn't help that I was replacing a failed HDD on my HVS-1/2 receiver PC at the time! Other HVS-1 data (GOES-15) is OK.

Terrible weather here with data losses due to rain and wind for several days.

Thanks,
David

Five minutes ago I'd fired up Animator and only saw a 1400 image for GOES16 - so phew from me as I was about to dig further.

There was an alert message from Eumetsat about PDA maintenance affecting GOES 16/17. It was hoped to be over by 17.00 UTC but clearly has run late.
Is it just me or does the PDA environment seem to have rather too many issues.

Douglas.

As Douglas says this is an issue with the connection EUMETSAT use to get the data from NOAA. We don't use EUMETCAST for GOES and our data is arriving without problems, so the satellites are fine. Unsure why the PDA is still down after 1700UTC - no update on the NOAA site, unfortunately.

Simon
