scqc

Derives quality control (QC) parameters from waveforms.

Description

scqc determines waveform quality control (QC) parameters of data streams. The output parameters are time averaged in terms of waveform quality messages. In regular intervals report messages are sent containing the short term average representation of the specific QC parameter for a given time span. Alarm messages are generated if the short term average (e.g. 90 s) of a QC parameter differs from the long term average (e.g. 3600 s) by more than a defined threshold. To avoid an excessive load, QC messages are sent distributed over time. Storing QC parameters into the database should be avoided by configuring, e.g., plugins.default.archive.interval as otherwise the database grows quickly.

The QC parameters can be interactively observed using scqcv or scmm.

Technology

scqc uses plugins to compute the waveform quality parameters. The plugins can be found in @DATADIR@/plugins/qc.

QC parameters

../_images/times.png

Times describing the data records, e.g., for calculating delay or latency.

The following QC parameters are determined:

availability [%]

Plugin: qcplugin_availability

Description: Availability of data in the configured time span.

delay [s]

Plugin: qcplugin_delay

Description: Time difference between arrival time of last record at the SeisComP system and end time of last record (see Figure):

delay = t_{arr1} - t_{12}.

gap (count [counts], interval [s], length [s])

Plugin: qcplugin_spike

Description: In case of a data gap between two consecutive records this parameter delivers the gap interval time, the mean length of the gaps and the number of the gaps (count) over the configured time interval.

latency [s]

Plugin: qcplugin_latency

Description: Time difference between the end times of consecutive records (see Figure):

latency = t_{arr2} - t_{arr1}.

For constant and low delays, latency is approximately the mean record length.

offset [counts]

Plugin: qcplugin_offset

Description: Average value of all samples of a record.

outage [time string]

Plugin: qcplugin_outage

Description: Delivers the start and the end time of a data outage (gap).

overlap (count [counts], interval [s], length [s])

Plugin: qcplugin_overlap

Description: In case of overlaps between two consecutive records this parameter delivers the overlaps interval time, the mean length of the overlaps and the number of the overlaps (count) over the configured time interval.

rms [counts]

Plugin: qcplugin_rms

Description: Offset corrected root mean square (RMS) value of a record.

spike (count [counts], interval [s], amplitude [counts])

Plugin: qcplugin_spike

Description: In case of the occurrence of a spike in a record this parameter delivers the time interval between adjacent spikes, the mean amplitude of the spike and the number of the spikes (count) over the configured time interval. Internally a list of spikes is stored (spike time, spike amplitude); the spike finder algorithm is still preliminary.

timing [%]

Plugin: qcplugin_timing

Description: miniSEED record timing quality (0 - 100 %) as written into the miniSEED records by the digitizer.

Command-line

Generic

-h, --help

Verbosity

--verbosity arg

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

-v, --v
