Data Ingestion

Ingestion processes have to map between the filename components and directory locations. To do this the ingestion is done via calls to the  cfarr_ingester.py script. This script has a class that inherits from the standard Ingester class. cfarr_ingester.py is then called for each ingest stream as defined in the /home/badc/software/datasets/chilbolton/chilbolton_fromDeliveries.cfg config file

Runs on crontab.

Post Ingestion work


QC checks:

Files are only checked by CFARR staff. No other checking done at this stage. Format of files was confirmed to be CF-compliant ahead of setting up automatic processes.

Common problems:

Standard issues around ingest only.
