Global parameters

The SeisComP configuration uses a unified schema to configure modules. Modules which use the SeisComP libraries can read this configuration directly and share global configuration options like messaging connections, database configurations, logging and much more. There are still some modules that do not use the libraries and are called standalone modules such as seedlink and slarchive. They need wrappers to generate their native configuration when seiscomp update-config is run.

Global parameters can be used by many modules. Thus multiple configuration can be avoided. The parameters are read from file in the following order:

  1. @SYSTEMCONFIGDIR@/global.cfg

  2. @CONFIGDIR@/global.cfg

Parameters from @CONFIGDIR@ override parameters from @SYSTEMCONFIGDIR@.

Most trunk modules read the configuration from the global configuration which can be overridden by the module configuration. Read the concept section on modules and the concept section on the configuration for more details.

Though it is easy to create the configuration by directly editing the configuration files, it is even more convenient to use a graphical configuration tool. SeisComP ships with scconfig, a graphical configuration and management tool which makes it easy to maintain module configurations and station bindings even for large networks. It has built-in functionality to check the state of all registered modules and to start and stop them.

The configuration is divided into three parts: stations, modules and bindings.

Station meta data

Station meta-data is a fundamental requirement for a seismic processing system and for SeisComP. Read the inventory section in concepts for more details.

Modules

The concepts of modules and their configuration is described in the concepts section.

Bindings

Bindings provide specific configurations per module and station and even stream. Read the bindings section in concepts for more details on bindings.

Extensions

Extensions add new configuration options to modules. It does not matter how those extensions are used. Commonly a module loads a plugin, which requires additional configuration parameters - these are provided by an extension.

There are currently extensions for the following modules, corresponding to the plugins shown:

By default only the station code is used (e.g. tablePath.P.@STA@.time.*), but that doesn’t allow to distinguish between multiple network codes or location codes that use the same station code. To overcome this limitation this parameter could be set in a more general way, for example @NET@_@STA@_@LOC@. In this way NonLinLoc will look for travel time table (grid) files of the form: tablePath.P.@NET@_@STA@_@LOC@.time.* Where @NET@ @STA@ @LOC@ are just placeholder for the actual codes

Default: 0.25

Type: double

Unit: s

Typical error in seconds for travel-time to one station. This value affects the uncertainty of the location. In OctTree it also influences the probability density computation: a too conservative value increases the number of iterations required by OctTree to converge to a high resolution solution.

Note

StdLoc.profile.$name.OctTree.* Find the source location and time via OctTree search. This method uses the parameters defined in GridSearch, but applies the OctTree search algorithm. The solution can be further improved combining OctTree with the Least Squares algorithm, which can use the OctTree solution as initial location estimate.

scheme.* This group defines various options for color, pen, brush, font, etc. for SeisComP graphical user interfaces. There are various conventions to define colors, fonts and gradients. ** Colors are defined in HTML convention, e.g. as rgb values, hexadecimal numbers or color keyword names defined by W3C. If rgb or rgba is used, it must be quoted because the comma is handled as list separator by the configuration. Examples: “rgb(255,0,0)”, FF00FF40, green. ** Gradients are configured as lists of tuples where each tuple is colon separated in the form value:color. Value is either int or double and color is again a color definition. Example: 0:yellow,10:red

Unit: km/s

The maximum phase velocity used to determine the signal window start.

amplitudes.MN.snrWindowSeconds

Default: 10

Type: double

Unit: s

The length of the SNR window.

amplitudes.MN.noiseWindowPreSeconds

Default: 0

Type: double

Unit: s

The offset of the noise window. A positive value will move the computed noise window to the left on the time axis, a negative value will move it to the right on the time axis.

amplitudes.MN.signalStartPriorities

Default: Lg,Sg,Sn,S,Vmax

Type: list:string

The priority list of phase onsets to compute the signal start window. Except for Vmin and Vmax, associated phases (arrivals) must be present in the origin for this particular phase. Picked phases are only considered if the origin is a manual origin or the pick is a manual pick. The first value in the list which can be retrieved or computed, is selected.

Allowed tokens: Pg, Pn, P, Sg, Sn, S, Lg, Rg, Vmin, Vmax

amplitudes.MN.signalEndPriorities

Default: Rg,Vmin

Type: list:string

The priority list of phase onsets to compute the signal end window. Except for Vmin and Vmax, associated phases (arrivals) must be present in the origin for this particular phase. Picked phases are only considered if the origin is a manual origin or the pick is a manual pick. The first value in the list which can be retrieved or computed, is selected.

Allowed tokens: Pg, Pn, P, Sg, Sn, S, Lg, Rg, Vmin, Vmax

Note

magnitudes.MN.* Parameters for computing MN magnitudes from AMN amplitudes.

magnitudes.MN.minSNR

Default: 2

Type: double

The minimum SNR required for a magnitude to pass the QC check. The station magnitude will be computed anyway but if the SNR is below this threshold it will be associated with weight zero and will not contribute to the network magnitude.

magnitudes.MN.minPeriod

Default: 0.01

Type: double

Unit: s

The minimum period required for a magnitude to pass the QC check. The station magnitude will be computed anyway but if the period is below this threshold it will be associated with weight zero and will not contribute to the network magnitude.

magnitudes.MN.maxPeriod

Default: 1.3

Type: double

Unit: s

The maximum period allowed for a magnitude to pass the QC check. The station magnitude will be computed anyway but if the period is above this threshold it will be associated with weight zero and will not contribute to the network magnitude.

magnitudes.MN.minDist

Default: 0.5

Type: double

Unit: deg

The minimum distance required for a magnitude to pass the QC check. The station magnitude will be computed anyway but if the distance is below this threshold it will be associated with weight zero and will not contribute to the network magnitude.

magnitudes.MN.maxDist

Default: 30

Type: double

Unit: deg

The maximum distance allowed for a magnitude to be computed. If the distance exceeds this threshold then the computation will be canceled and no station magnitude will be available at all.

Note

magnitudes.MLr.* Parameter for computing MLr magnitudes for GNS/Geonet from MLv amplitudes.

magnitudes.MLr.params

Type: string

Defines Stations Corrections parameters for MLr (GNS/Geonet Local magnitude). Format: "UpToKilometers A ; UpToNextKilometers A ;". Example: "30 nomag; 60 0.018 ; 700 0.0038 ". The first parameter set "30 nomag" means that up to 30km from the sensor the magnitude should not be calculated. A is used as station correction. "nomag" is used to disable station magnitudes.

Note: No MLr computation if params is empty.

Command-Line Options

Generic

-h, --help

Show help message.

-V, --version

Show version information.

--config-file arg

Use alternative configuration file. When this option is used the loading of all stages is disabled. Only the given configuration file is parsed and used. To use another name for the configuration create a symbolic link of the application or copy it. Example: scautopick -> scautopick2.

--plugins arg

Load given plugins.

-D, --daemon

Run as daemon. This means the application will fork itself and doesn’t need to be started with &.

--auto-shutdown arg

Enable/disable self-shutdown because a master module shutdown. This only works when messaging is enabled and the master module sends a shutdown message (enabled with --start-stop-msg for the master module).

--shutdown-master-module arg

Set the name of the master-module used for auto-shutdown. This is the application name of the module actually started. If symlinks are used, then it is the name of the symlinked application.

--shutdown-master-username arg

Set the name of the master-username of the messaging used for auto-shutdown. If "shutdown-master-module" is given as well, this parameter is ignored.

Verbose

--verbosity arg

Verbosity level [0..4]. 0:quiet, 1:error, 2:warning, 3:info, 4:debug.

-v, --v

Increase verbosity level (may be repeated, eg. -vv).

-q, --quiet

Quiet mode: no logging output.

--print-component arg

For each log entry print the component right after the log level. By default the component output is enabled for file output but disabled for console output.

--print-context arg

For each log entry print the source file name and line number.

--component arg

Limit the logging to a certain component. This option can be given more than once.

-s, --syslog

Use syslog logging backend. The output usually goes to /var/lib/messages.

-l, --lockfile arg

Path to lock file.

--console arg

Send log output to stdout.

--debug

Execute in debug mode. Equivalent to --verbosity=4 --console=1 .

--trace

Execute in trace mode. Equivalent to --verbosity=4 --console=1 --print-component=1 --print-context=1 .

--log-file arg

Use alternative log file.

Messaging

-u, --user arg

Overrides configuration parameter connection.username.

-H, --host arg

Overrides configuration parameter connection.server.

-t, --timeout arg

Overrides configuration parameter connection.timeout.

-I, --record-url arg

The recordstream source URL, format: [service://]location[#type]. "service" is the name of the recordstream driver which can be queried with "--record-driver-list". If "service" is not given, "file://" is used.

--record-file arg

Specify a file as record source.

--record-type arg

Specify a type for the records being read.

Cities

--city-xml arg

The path to the cities XML file. This overrides the default paths. Compare with the global parameter "citiesXML".
