In SeisComP 4.5.0 we have simplified the increasingly complex configuration of magnitudes. However, some configurations must be adjusted by you. Other parameters in the global and scautoloc module configurations were changed in earlier SeisComP 4 minor versions. Read the Changelog of SeisComP 4.5.0 for all details.
The good news is that the new configuration will be much more clear and homogeneous. To assist you we provide a script that checks your configuration and helps you to identify where you need to take an action. For identifying deprecated parameters download the script gempa-checkSCconfig.py from our public server . After download, make the script executable and read the command-line help which provides options and examples:
The number of magnitude types has grown over time and each magnitude had its own flavor of configuration. This made configurations increasingly difficult. Therefore, we have unified the configuration in the magnitudes and amplitudes sections of global bindings. By this change the configuration becomes homogeneous and easier. The corresponding parameters are deprecated and must be replaced by new ones either pre-pending “magnitudes.” or “amplitudes.” to the respective parameter. Warnings will be written to module logs if deprecated values are found. The changes affect ML, MLv, MLh, md, MLr, and Ms_20 magnitudes.
To check for obsolete parameters, execute scolv on the command line and compute the respective magnitudes or run the provided check script. Configuration errors will be reported:
We have further added new options in global bindings to configure distance ranges for mb and mB magnitudes.
Some of the possible configuration parameters were previously not exposed and visible to you without reading the source code. We have brought them up to the surface and made them configurable in scconfig. Furthermore, parameters controlling the locator were grouped in 2 sections which we have unified to only one. We hope the configuration of scautoloc becomes more clear by this.
To check for obsolete parameters, execute scautoloc on the command line or run the provided check script. Configuration errors will be reported:
We allow to set and view various type values. Among them are event type, magnitude type and depth type. For a homogeneous configuration we have renamed the magnitude column in the Events list tab of scolv or scesv from TP to MType. The global configuration of eventlist.visibleColumns must be adjusted accordingly.
