Retrieving the data¶
Accessing your disk space¶
Each observing project owns disk space on discos-console. Open a terminal on such machine and use:
$ su - [project-code]
The necessary password is provided by your project friend. Once logged in, you will find specific folders under your home folder, in particular
- data Folder containing the data acquired by running schedules when observing with XARCOS or the TPB
- sardaraData Folder containing the data acquired by running schedules when observing with SARDARA
- extraData Folder containing the data acquired by using command lines
- logs Folder where logfiles are stored
- schedules Folder where your schedules must be uploaded to
Your disk space can also be remotely accessed, as long as you connect to it from the SRT campus network. Use:
$ ssh [project-code]@discos-console
To retrieve your data, open a terminal on your machine and use:
$ scp -r [project-code]@discos-console:./data/[YYYYMMDD] .
For SARDARA data, this becomes:
$ scp -r [project-code]@discos-console:./sardaraData/[YYYYMMDD] .
When you need to upload your schedules to the system, instead, open a terminal on your machine and write:
$ scp [schedulename].* [project-code]@discos-console:./schedules
Inside the data folders, subfolders named according to the date (YYYYMMDD) will be automatically created during acquisitions. Taking into account the choice of the FITS format, the date-dependent folder contains a subfolder for every scan, inside which there are the FITS files (one for each subscan).
Scan folder names are composed as:
- HHMMSS is the UT time associated to the first sample of the acquisition
- Project is the code/name specified using the
- or when starting a schedule with
- Suffix is a user-defined string retrieved from the schedule files.
- Though no control can be applied on the choice/check of this string, the agreement is that it should coincide with the target name.
FITS files, each corresponding to a subscan, are composed as:
