Hi all,
I have only the readme file in my received/tmp directory. The .fsy
file remains at normal size. (I have not requested participation in
MSG-2 trials).

Best regards - Alan

But I do notice that between 16:50 and 16:55 my 0.fsy file grew
alarmingly from 14 to 22 Mb.

This is close to the 24 Mb limit I setup.

This is a bit unexpected as the additional MSG2 stream had very little
impact on my test system.

I have almost the same scenario here Arne fsy is currently 21,655 Before today the fsy even with MSG-2 enabled was just peaking at 8Mb.

R: MSG-2 trial experience

Giuseppe Cico
 

Yesterday my Tellicast has fault... I've had to reboot... log file was full
of something like ...
ERR:2006-05-17 21:06:28.809:Cannot join channel "EUMETSAT Data Channel 2":
Missing key 31055
ERR:2006-05-17 21:06:32.246:Cannot join channel "EUMETSAT Data Channel 5":
Failed to decode key 31058

My revc.ini was set to "file_database_size=24576000"... I've ramdisk up to
256M so I've set to 62914560.
Now fsy file has grown to 22154240, and reception is ok unless today MSG-1
out-of-duty.
If I wasn't at work I'd switched temporarily to MSG-2, so I wondered if in
the future we can schedule such changeovers when MSG-1 will be the backup
sat.
David, this is yours... if it's possible... :-)
Have a good evening, ciao

Hi all,
I'm keeping some time to focus on 2-days-trial...
Firstly my system seems funny to deal with 4+Mbps data flow... he's so
fine...
From yesterday until 16 today I've saved MSG-2 on HD (at the moment I have
all raw data from yest.10 to today 16), without processing, just to keep
high traffic, and creating some kind of reports viewed from office.
I remember fsy file sized about 9MB.
Back home I've set MSG-2 channels saved to ramdisk and MDM to them deleted
while processing MSG-1, and now fsy is 13M.
This is not a problem, just a curiosity... anyway it works!!!
I've not tried to process MSG-2 data, because in the past I tried to
process
old data and if I understand MDM behaviour, it doesn't like out-of-time
data.
I suppose it's correctly built to process data in current 15min timeslot,
not older... more or less... who knows...
I'm waiting for Tellicast update too...
Ulrich, maybe They provide it only on Eumetcast flow because we're an
"elite" to receive it...
"MSG Crusaders"... :-)
Ciao to all

Re: MSG-1 data since about 12:30

Hi all,
Has anyone else noticed no data on channel 2 (i.e. HRIT) since about 12:30
?
FSD is OK but I've got no MSG1 images since lunch time - is it me?
Regards
Nick

No, see the OPS message today.

Following the problems encountered on Met-8 during preparations for the
orbital manoeuvre on Tuesday, 16/5/06 (day 136), it is now necessary to reconfigure to the backup Attitude and Orbit Control Electronics (AOCE).
This will cause a 2 hour outage of SEVIRI images, followed by a 2 hour
high-risk period.
Additionally, there will be degraded image quality for some hours following
this configuration change.
It is planned to start this operation at 1200 UTC on Thursday, 18/5/06 (day
138).

The last scan was actually 12.30 UTC.

Regards
Douglas.

Ken, just to be sure, how long have you not been receiving MSG-1. MSG-1 is
currently off as per the OPS advisory :-

Following the problems encountered on Met-8 during preparations for the
orbital manoeuvre on Tuesday,
16/5/06 (day 136), it is now necessary to reconfigure to the backup Attitude
and Orbit Control Electronics (AOCE).
This will cause a 2 hour outage of SEVIRI images, followed by a 2 hour

It is planned to start this operation at 1200 UTC on Thursday, 18/5/06 (day
138).

In fact the last scan was 12.30 UTC.
I'll respond to your other points depending on your reply (just going out).
Are you receiving MSG-2 ok.

Regards
Douglas.


Re: MSG 2 setup

Ken Barker
 

Recently David T wrote in part;

"However, I am concerned that folk who do not already filter their data by using the recv-channels.ini file may be overwhelmed by having two lots of data in the same directory, but I am sure that the group here will help if that is the case.
Essentially, if you have the line :
-------------------------------------------------------------------
[*]
target_directory=received
-------------------------------------------------------------------
in the recv-channels.ini file, you will get all the data, both the MSG-1 data you want, plus the MSG-2 test data which you don't want. The asterisk means "everything". You need to replace that line by lines like:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
[EUMETSAT Data Channel 1]
target_directory=received
[EUMETSAT Data Channel 2]
target_directory=received
[EUMETSAT Data Channel 3]
target_directory=received
[SAF-Europe]
target_directory=received
-------------------------------------------------------------------
This will ensure that the unwanted MSG-2 commissioning data, which will be transmitted on [EUMETSAT Data Channel 5] and [EUMETSAT Data Channel 6] will not be processed by your TelliCast software."
In my .ini file I have
------------------------------------
[*]
target_ directory d:msg&#92;received
------------------------------------
I have nothing in the .ini about EUMETSAT Data Channels. Since applying to Eumetsat to be included in the MSG2 tests, I now receive ONLY Admin Messages. I do not receive any MSG1 files.

Do I have a problem with my .ini file or is the problem with my EKU update?
Thanks in advance

Nick,

You and me both.

I've been running a couple of animation's over the last couple of days
tracking the 'summer deep depression' which was running OK mid morning as was MSG
D M.

I nipped over to Heathrow at lunchtime to see the arrival of the Airbus A
380 - IT'S BIG! - I was right at the end of the runway as it screamed low right
overheard - coming in, I might add, at an alarming angle in the strong cross
winds.

Got back home to find MSG D M stuck on 12:30 cycle but Zone Alarm 'traffic
light' showing data flow, green satellite icon and 'pink T' - 'Oh dear, now
what?'
Brief panic till I read the EUMETSAT messages.

Trouble is I'll have holes in an interesting animation.

Regards,
John Tellick.


Re: ERS-SCAT Trial

Indeed Douglas,

Could not find a viewer for BUFR data that runs on windows.
KNMI uses Fortran software that runs on Linux/Unix.

Not sure if the site belows shows the same data but I do see coverage
is very limited at this moment.
http://www.knmi.nl/scatterometer/ers_prod/ers_app.cgi

But this is a trial to test and prepare for the EPS data.

Just a reminder that there is another trial running on Eumetcast:

The ERS-SCAT demonstration service as part of the preparations for the
EARS-ASCAT Pilot service.

If you have not done this already, you have to thick the "ERS-SCAT"
box under Setup, SAF to keep this data.
This option is only available in the new MSG Data Manager 2.5

Although I have not looked into decoding/viewing these BUFR format
files, they are present as SCATT*.L2 in the raw data if you did
subscribe.

For more info:

The ERS scatterometer wind product produced by KNMI is disseminated in
parallel, in two different formats:
- Classic ERS BUFR format, filenames such as ISXYYYYMMDDHHMMSS.inv
- ASCAT BUFR format that will be used for the EARS ASCAT Pilot service
and the EPS global mission, to enable EUMETCast users to become
familiar with the type of data that will be provided from the EARS
ASCAT Pilot service. filenames are like:
scatt_YYYYMMDD_HHMMDD_ers2___00000_ears_MS250.l2

The ERS scatterometer wind product produced by KNMI is disseminated in
parallel, in two different formats:
- Classic ERS BUFR format, filenames such as ISXYYYYMMDDHHMMSS.inv
- ASCAT BUFR format that will be used for the EARS ASCAT Pilot service
and the EPS global mission, to enable EUMETCast users to become
familiar with the type of data that will be provided from the EARS
ASCAT Pilot service. filenames are like:
scatt_YYYYMMDD_HHMMDD_ers2___00000_ears_MS250.l2
