Dynamic Observing Scripts

The following scripts and files are required to make dynamic observing work. They are available for download here (updated 02/12/2016):

By default, the scripts should be downloaded from the oper account on your PCFS and unpacked in the home directory:

cd /home/oper
tar xzvf dysched_scripts.tar.gz

This will create a directory called dysched with three scripts and a text file. Some configuration is required before they will run. Follow the links below for notes on configuration.

  • dysched.pl, a script to manage dynamic scheduling observations.
  • ds_redbutton.pl, a program to allow local users to join or leave the dynamic observing observations at any time
  • DynamicSnap.sh, a script called by dysched.pl that runs Drudge on the retrieved schedule and appends it to the schedule that is currently running.
  • override.txt, a file needed by ds_redbutton.pl to track the override status.
