Technical Progress

Pipeline quality Metric Bundles produced by the science pipelines (including analysis tools) can now be ingested into Sasquatch. We are now porting over all our metrics and Pipeline QA dashboards over from Squash to Sasquatch. This is important for commissioning because we can correlate image quality metrics with telemetry from the EFD in one database.

Improved sky object placement using a quasi-random approach provides better coverage of the sky with the same number of sources.

Real-bogus classification was added to the Alert Production pipeline.
Work has commenced on support of HTCondor containers on summit for batch processing on demand. Released rubin-env 6.0.0 with new packages and the ability to use newer versions of existing packages. The Butler interfaces and implementation were simplified by always using “resolved” concrete locations internally.

Replication between Summit LFA and USDF has been enabled. Currently all data stored in the LFA will be automatically copied to USDF using the LHN
