Release Notes JSOC V3.8 12Sep2007 ----------------------- --------- A release is a set of files, each having a specific version. And a release typcially has a version number because over time you have newer and newer releases of the same product. For example, a hypothetical 1.3 release may contain fileA#1.8, fileB#1.2, fileC#2.2 and a 1.4 release may contain fileA#2.5, fileB#2.1, fileC#2.9. JSOC releases are similarly versioned and contain a set of such files. JSOC release code is guaranteed to compile on cluster nodes (eg., n00, n02). The resulting binaries have been minimally tested. At the time of the creation of the release, the release versions of each file will be the most recent. But as time passes, newer versions of some files will be made, and there is no guarantee that these changes will not destabilize JSOC (ie., they may cause JSOC to no longer compile or execute properly). There are several ways to use this release. If you wish to simply use pre-built binaries, you can simply use the production binaries, which are located at /home/production/cvs/jsoc. Every time a release is created, the binaries in this location get updated. Only the production user can update these binaries. So, you could run /home/production/cvs/jsoc/bin/linux_x86_64/show_keys, for example. If instead you want to work with stable source files, then you must have a sandbox, which is a local copy (in your home directory) of the files in the cvs depot. You would probably want to work with a sandbox if you plan on making eventual changes to the depot files. Changes you make to your sandbox files are not visible to other users until you "commit" those changes back to the cvs depot. Please see "If You Don't Have a Sandbox" below for more information on how to create a sandbox. There is also a "working" release which resides in in /home/jsoc/cvs/jsoc. New files may be placed here and existing files may be edited for common use before the next official release. Each time a release gets created, the source and binaries of the working release get updated. WARNING: the files you see here may not be stable since by the time you see them, another user may have edited them. Only the production release is guaranteed to be stable and unchanged between releases. Updating to this release ----------------------- Once you have a sandbox, you may want to update it to this release so that you get new functionality that is stable (the binaries build and run properly). The general way of doing this is to run "cvs update -APd -r Ver_3-8" from $JSOCROOT. The "-r" flag tells cvs to ensure that all your local files have the versions that compose the 3.8 Release. You would then need to run "make" from $JSOCROOT to build the binaries. Alternatively, there is a script, $JSOCROOT/jsoc_update.csh that can be used to both update to the latest release and to build JSOC on all supported machines. To do this, run $JSOCROOT/jsoc_update.csh -R. The "-R" flag tells cvs to update to the latest release before building on the supported machine types. This script generates log files for each machine type: $JSOCROOT/make_jsoc_linux_X86_64.log and $JSOCROOT/make_jsoc_linux_ia32.log. You should examine these logs to look for errors. Before updating to the release with either of these alternatives, ensure that somewhere in your setup "source $HOME/.setJSOCenv" exists. If You Don't Have a Sandbox --------------------------- You need a cvs "sandbox" to contain your view of a JSOC release: (There is no need to do this unless you're going to be a jsoc developer.) Set the env variables: CVSROOT=:ext:sunroom.stanford.edu:/home/cvsuser/cvsroot CVS_RSH=ssh Make a cvs dir and do: > cd /home/you/cvs > cvs checkout jsoc This will copy the LATEST version of all cvs depot files to /home/you/cvs/jsoc. These are not guaranteed to be stable. This is something you may want to do if you are a developer, perhaps you are fixing a broken build. If instead you want this stable release, then substitute "cvs checkout -r Ver_3-8 jsoc" for the above "cvs checkout jsoc" command. You would then make changes to the checked-out files, and commit them back to the depot with the "cvs commit files..." command. Only after running this command can users "see" your changes. To "see" your changes, a user would need to update their sandbox with the latest changes to the depot ("cd $JSOCROOT; cvs update -APd" ) Additional Info --------------- If you are unfamiliar with the use of cvs see the file: jsoc/CM/working_with_sandbox.txt. There's a linux4 cvs gui at xim:/usr/bin/lincvs Also on our jsoc web page: http://jsoc.stanford.edu/cvs/jsoc/ Use the Apache cvs gui to see the diffs. For example, go to http://jsoc.stanford.edu/cvs/jsoc/src/base/libdrms/ and click on the name in the File column and then click on "diffs to previous #" to see the diffs. Changes since last release (Version 3.5) -------------------------------------------------------------------- * New non-recursive make system. * Port of time IO from MDI. * Updated README describing new make system. * Removal of several targts from the 'default make'. * Environment-variable functionality to allow a debug make. * Initial IDL interface added. * DSDS interface added. * Fortran interface plus make system changes to properly create dependencies between Fortran modules. * Factored out common jsoc_main code - put this into jsoc_main.c. Specific jsoc_mains are of the form jsoc_main_XXX.c * Implement third-party library plan. Update configure file so that with "-l" flag, it prints out 3rd-party library dependencies, says where the libraries should be installed, and says what version the libraries should be. Fix fortran_examples make rules - add dependencies files, use installed 3rd-party libraries (not something in somebody's home dir). Remove from cvs 3rd-party libraries. Remove libdsputil.a from SRCLIBS - it is not used by any binary. * jsoc_update.csh now builds on n02 for x86-64. Added a new flag "R" that updates to latest release, not latest source. * Removed warnings/loop vectorizaiton messages from default make. * Fixed some compiler-warnings in cmdparams. * Added params_get API functions that don't have a status parameter. * Better diagnostics in hmi_ground/q_import_lev0_CIF_from_file.csh. * Auto-download FDS and LZP data. * mocDlFdsSpec.txt - Make the download script more efficient. Group path specs together. Add the span modifier in path specs. * Add functionality to allow creating a new series on the fly. Allows user to create a detached record template and subsequently modify pieces of that template before creating a new series. * Can create record, keyword, segment, etc. prototypes that are not cached in the record cache. * drms_server.c - In drms_server_abort(), allow the sums_thread to finish. This gets rid of the error message when a drms_server aborts. * Port v2helio to JSOC - called o2helio.
