Updates to the MSSL IDFS Archive


This page lists major updates to the MSSL IDFS Archive, including new pidfs, new VIDFS and reprocessed data. Normal daily processing is not listed here of course.

  • 2008-03-01
    • New inter-anode calibrations v5.2 have been released. CLUSTERII 3DF, 3DR, 3DX1, 3DX2, PAD, SPINPAD and LER VIDFs have been replaced.
  • 2007-08-31
    • DOUBLESTAR TC-2 FGM DFUNIT data has been replaced. New files were made used a new version of cleaned files from FGM.
  • 2007-08-09
    • DOUBLESTAR 3DF VIDFs have been replaced with daily VIDFs with improved inter-anode calibration. These VIDFs are labelled as Calibration Version 2.0.
  • 2007-08-08
    • CLUSTERII 3DR, 3DX1 and 3DX2 VIDFs have been replaced. These VIDFs are labelled as Calibration Version 5.1.

    • All 2004-2006 DOUBLESTAR TC-2 RPAD data replaced with newly-regenerated data (spin information now included correctly)
    • CLUSTERII PAD, SPINPAD, LER and 3DF VIDFs have been replaced. These VIDFs are labelled as Calibration Version 5.1.
    • CLUSTERII MOMS_L2 now available to 2006-12-31.

    • CLUSTERII/CLUSTER-?/JSOC/JP and CLUSTERII/CLUSTER_SP/JSOC/JP have been regenerated to correct EOF problem BUT...
      This is a temporary fix - for a few days - will need to regenerate again once we've establish Data_ACC can be 0ms.
  • 2005-11-22
    • ALL Cluster Summary Parameters (all instruments) reprocessed, just like Aux on 2005-11-21, below.

    • Cluster Auxilary Summary Parameters reprocessed to:
      a) Shift timestamps (that is remove 30s from timestamps and set record duration to 60.000s)
      b) Insert the first record of the day (previously missing)
      c) Avoid rounding issues in time stamps (11:24:00.000 rather than 11:23:59.999)
      d) Correct the End of File tag at the end of the IDFS files
      e) Reprocess SP AUX CDFs from 2000-2005, place in archive and update MySQL entries
