 Simulation work is momentarily on stand-by, as explained in the 1st year review, due to the changes in the needs of the mission. The second large simulation expected for this year has been postponed and the simulation resources at CSUC have been moved to data mining (also agreed in the 1st year review). The latest update from the DPAC consortium indicates that a new simulation will be needed towards the end of the year (TBC) and the activity would then resume.

T4.2 - Visualization

Added:

Object Server
  • Designed and implemented new baseline approach for levels of detail. Has brought an important increase in fluidity, lower storage and optimized data transfer.
  • Optimised data structures for indexing and storage (e.g. used in the server octrees)
  • Capable of serving 100 million points for interactive visualisation. Tested with hardware at U. Lisbon
  • Already installed at ESAC. Current version capable of efficiently serving Tycho2 for 3D visualisations (thus, OK for TGAS if it arrives)
  • Tested creation of a full 2B rows GUMS-MW visualization and ensured that it can be done with a moderate amount of system RAM (~8GB is enough for one visualization, does not scale linearly but more is better as it masks low disk bandwidth). Tested with hardware at U. Lisbon.
  • Confirmed that pre-computations for each full GUMS-MW visualization (=a set of variables to be visualised) will take at least 270GB of space to be persisted (for 2B rows, if more than X,Y,Z are defined more space is needed)
  • Confirmed that disk I/O is a bottleneck (lots of Random Reads and Writes needed) for the pre-computations.

3D Client ESAC Related
  • Created TAP vs JDBC test case, which simulates a some of the workflow (includes, Sequential and Random access tests).
  • Validated ESAC VM changes (16GB ram plus 1TB nfs share, I/O at 1Gbps)
Other
  • Updates to the documentation in the WP980 wiki.
  • End user tests of the whole client-server visualisation capabilities with U. Wien
 

T4.3 - Data Mining

  • Firsts tests as a demostration of a possible procedure to extract data from the Gaia Archive to be used be the Data Mininng framework.
  • Analisis on newly implemented MlLib algorithms on Spark, tested on non-Gaia data.

    • First tests for TGAS where we cross-match with Hipparcos, calculate difference in parallax, separate constant from variable stars and test that: - S. Blanco-Cuaresma
      • Both groups have a mean parallax difference of zero (Student's t-test)
      • Both groups have the same mean parallax difference (Student's t-test for 2 samples)
      • Both groups have the same variance for parallax difference (F-test)
      • Both groups have the same distribution (Kolmogorov–Smirnov test)
