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 configuraion 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 configurator. SeisComP ships with a graphical configurator and management tool (scconfig) 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.

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:

Defines the channel code of the preferred stream used by e.g. scautopick and scrttv. If no component code is given, the vertical component will be fetched from inventory. For that the channel orientation (azimuth, dip) will be used. If that approach fails, ‘Z’ will be appended and used as fallback.

amplitudes.saturationThreshold

Type: string

Unit: counts; %

Defines the saturation threshold for the optional saturation check. By default the saturation check is disabled but giving a value above 0 will enable it. Waveforms that are saturated are not used for amplitude calculations.

This value can either be an absolute value of counts such as "100000" counts or a relative value (optionally in percent) with respect to the number of effective bits, e.g. "0.8@23" or "80%@23". The first version uses 1**23 * 0.8 whereas the latter uses 1**23 * 80/100.
