Update January 31st, 10h00 : Distribution was just restarted, a few hundreds of images will be added today, and meanwhile, data are processed in Near Real Time.
This January was a nightmare for MUSCATE. Following database issues to send data to the distribution server, our production system was stopped during the Christmas break and unstable the weeks after.
After understanding the issues, the MUSCATE team stopped the automatic sending of products, resumed the production, and started to update the production server manually. We were nearly back on track last Thursday, when the distribution server refuse to accept any new product. The explanation was found, a directory in the High Performance Storage System (a robot that handles tapes and disks) had 65535 files and could not accept a new one. We need a little reorganisation of the folder structure to overcome that, and meanwhile, the distribution is stalled again.
Still, more than 60 000 L2A products are now available, and we have started distributing the snow cover products, in NRTWD ("Near real time with delay"). We hope to be soon really in NRT.
