scquery

Read database objects and writes them to the command line.

Description

scquery reads objects such as event information from the SeisComP database based on custom queries and writes them to stdout. It extends scevtls and scorgls which are limited to searching event and origin IDs, respectively, by time.

scquery takes into account the query profiles defined in

  • @SYSTEMCONFIGDIR@/queries.cfg or

  • @CONFIGDIR@/queries.cfg

while parameters in the latter take priority.

Module Setup

  1. Create the query profiles in queries.cfg in @CONFIGDIR@ or @SYSTEMCONFIGDIR@. The file contains your database queries. Examples for MariaDB/MySQL and PostgreSQL are found in the section Queries.

  2. Optional: Add the database connection parameter to the configuration file scquery.cfg or global.cfg in @CONFIGDIR@ or to @SYSTEMCONFIGDIR@:

    database = mysql://sysop:sysop@localhost/seiscomp
    

    Hint

    If the database connection is configured, the database option -d in the section Examples can be omitted or used to override the configuration.

Examples

Choose any query profile defined in the queries.cfg. Provide the required parameters in the same order as in the database request. The required parameters are indicated by hashes, e.g. ##latMin##.

  1. List all available query profiles using the command-line option showqueries:

    scquery -d localhost/seiscomp --showqueries
    
  2. Profile event_filter: Fetch all event IDs and event parameters for events with magnitude ranging from 2.5 to 5 in central Germany between 2014 and 2017:

    scquery -d localhost/seiscomp eventFilter 50 52 11.5 12.5 2.5 5 2014-01-01 2018-01-01 > events_vogtland.txt
    
  3. Profile eventByAuthor: Fetch all event IDs where the preferred origin was provided by a specific author for events 2.5 to 5 with 6 to 20 phases in central Germany between 2014 and 2017:

    scquery -d localhost/seiscomp eventByAuthor 50 52 11.5 12.5 6 20 2.5 5 2014-01-01 2018-01-01 scautoloc > events_vogtland.txt
    
  4. Profile eventType: Fetch all event IDs and event times from events with the given event type and within the provided time interval:

    scquery -d localhost/seiscomp eventType explosion '2017-11-01 00:00:00' '2018-11-01 00:00:00'

PostgreSQL

In contrast to queries for objects in MariaDB/MySQL the string “m_” must be added to the value and publicID database columns as shown below for the query “eventFilter”.

queries = eventFilter

query.eventFilter = "SELECT PEvent.m_publicID, Origin.m_time_value AS OT, Origin.m_latitude_value, Origin.m_longitude_value, Origin.m_depth_value, Magnitude.m_magnitude_value, Magnitude.m_type FROM Origin, PublicObject AS POrigin, Event, PublicObject AS PEvent, Magnitude, PublicObject AS PMagnitude WHERE Event._oid = PEvent._oid AND Origin._oid = POrigin._oid AND Magnitude._oid = PMagnitude._oid AND PMagnitude.m_publicID = Event.m_preferredMagnitudeID AND POrigin.m_publicID = Event.m_preferredOriginID AND Origin.m_latitude_value >= ##latMin## AND Origin.m_latitude_value <= ##latMax## AND Origin.m_longitude_value >= ##lonMin## AND Origin.m_longitude_value <= ##lonMax## AND Magnitude.m_magnitude_value >= ##minMag## AND Magnitude.m_magnitude_value <= ##maxMag## AND Origin.m_time_value >= '##startTime##' AND Origin.m_time_value <= '##endTime##';"

Command-line

scquery [OPTIONS] [query name] [query parameters]

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, eg scautopick -> scautopick2.

--plugins arg

Load given plugins.

Verbosity

--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

--component arg

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

-s, --syslog

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

-l, --lockfile arg

Path to lock file.

--console arg

Send log output to stdout.

--debug

Debug mode: --verbosity=4 --console=1

--log-file arg

Use alternative log file.

Database

--db-driver-list

List all supported database drivers.

-d, --database arg

The database connection string, format: service://user:pwd@host/database. "service" is the name of the database driver which can be queried with "--db-driver-list".

Commands

--showqueries

Show the stored queries in queries.cfg

--print-header

Print the query parameters and the query filter description as a header of the query output.
