AWIPS
II Round Table Action Items
,
November 14, 2012


Questions from Shannon White (OCWWS)

What is the status of outstanding gridded Dual domain issues w/in AWIPS (Natl Hurricane Ctr)?

Ans:


HPC (Hurricane Prediction Ctr) large domain issue is resolved
via the 64
-
bit
hardware platform soln (Dave Plummer)





ACTION:


Look at Natl Hurricane & Alaska Region (AR) dual domain issue [TimH.
Lead]

o

RESPONSE:

Closed
. AWIPS Program confirmed that large domain issue
will be addressed/resolved via the

64
-
bit hardware solution.





Questions from Ross Dickman (ER


New York)

What is the status of conducting FAA testing of IDS4 Lines (i.e. Async Product Scheduler)?

When can New York cut off (retire/decommission) the IDS4 Lines (i.e. 2 copper lines
)?

Ans:


Async Product Shceduler has been tested and is working w/in AWIPS II (TimH.)
ACTION:


Identify which field OTE site will test the Async Product Scheduler [NealD.
Lead]

o

RESPONSE:

Closed. The Async Product Scheduler has been tested at OAX
and ther
e are currently no open AWIPS II DRs or known issues at this time.
Some additional OT&E sites that also have an IDS4/Async Scheduler
currently connected and will be conducting additional testing in the future are:

Central Region:


BOU

Western Region:


SLC, PQR


ACTION:


Schedule a follow
-
on meeting with DonB and ER to discuss potential
decommission of IDS4 Lines [Olga Lead]

o

RESPONSE:

Closed held teleconference meeting w/ER on Tuesday
November 29
th
. Analysis Branch (Thomas Day/Jami Casamento) has follo
w
-
on activities, from the 11/29 session, on addressing IDS4Lines. In progress…

Questions from Brian (Boulder)

When can AWIPS handle new satellite products (i.e. from NPP launch, GOES
-
15 replacing
GOES
-
West, rapid scan imaging w/in D2D, etc.)?

Ans:


For
the NPP model products, AWIPS made the software changes to accept new
NPP datat models into AWIPS. (DonB.)


ACTION:


Need to provide an answer on how/when AWIPS can use GOES
-
15
satellite products. [EdM. Lead]


o

RESPONSE:

In August 2011, testing was pe
rformed to determine if any
changes would be required for AWIPS. Since the characteristics of the
products for the Imager and Sounder are the same between GOES
-
11 and
GOES
-
15, no software changes will be required to display the images and
products in AWIP
S I and AWIPS II. Prior to the transition NCF worked
with SEC to coordinate the AWIPS I configuration changes required for
the sites. and transition was smooth. On December 6, 2011 GOES
-
15
replace GOES
-
11 as the GOES
-
West operational spacecraft and GOE
S
-
15
GVAR began to flow through GOES
-
11 communication links. On
December 14, 2011 GOES
-
15 GVAR flowed directly through GOES
-
15
communication links and GOES
-
11 was decommissioned. NCF worked
with SEC to coordinate the AWIPS I configuration changes require
d on
December 5 and transition went smoothly.




How can we better use the ADAM workstation (i.e. performance is horrible)?

Ans: ADAM is used for functionality test and local app migration activities (DonB.,
DaveT. and TimH.)

ACTION:

EdM. to develop a whi
te paper highlighting on how to increase the efficiency
on the ADAM workstation and brief findings Don [EdM. Lead]

o

RESPONSE
: Installation of OB11.8.0
-
10 (completed at over 95 sites) is
expected to helped performance (qpidd parameters to match the hardware

of the machine, PostgreSQL changes to match the hardware of the
machine, and a few system level changes). The ADAM team has
reviewed the ADAM design and believes adding memory or disk space
will not greatly improve the performance of ADAM platform. The

objective of the ADAM platform was to support local application
migration and site configuration. To accomplish that objective, the
ADAM team recommendations the following:

Begin their session by stopping all servers, then restarting them
followed by st
arting CAVE.


This gives a momentary refresh of
any resources which the server
-
side JVMs have been hogging
resources.



Site's stop ingest while they are doing file editing, and turn it back
on when it is time to test.



SEC and Raytheon continues to provi
de support for any questions on
ADAM during the weekly question (Thursday’s at 2pm) and answer
session that any can attend and ask any question regarding the ADAM,
local applications or site migration.






Questions from Mark King (SR
-

Houston)

Does FX

Collaboration work within AWIPSII?

What is the status of data formatters (i.e. QPF Consistency Checks) working within AWIPS II?

Ans:


FXC has been migrated into AWIPS II as a national local app. (SteveS.)

ACTION:


Need to provide an answer/status on QPF
Consistency Checks working
within AWIPSII. [EdM. Lead]


o

RESPONSE:

Yes. SRH tested the FXC on the SRH AWIPS II system
yesterday. SRH is working on the configuration, but it looks good.

o

RESPONSE:

The GFE Migration Strategy Group (GMSG) is working on
d
eveloping a Grid Check QC tool for all sites. They are gathering
requirements for the Grid Check QC Tool. The group estimation for
completion is end of February 2012. This tool is needed for Houston to
migrate to AWIPS II.

o

General Huston status for loca
l applications (Jan 3, 2011)



Huston has not worked on AWIPS II very much lately, because of
the Holidays and competing projects with shorter deadlines.
Huston staff anticipates it will take not take long to get things
running because most of HGX's local
apps are standalone (e.g.,
textdb apps) and have been easily migrated to the baseline for
other applications. Largest unknown are the GFE Smart Tools
necessary to migrate to AWIPS II. SEC is working with the
(
GMSG) Huston staff to quickly define the ga
p and what resources
if any are required to complete the migration before March 2012.
