Hi,

I've never been able to get the Federator (-F) option to work using
FetchData. Here is a little script that works fine when I don't use the -F
but when I include the -F, i=I get the following:






*Received 910 Bytes from federator catalog in 1.3 seconds (705
Bytes/s)Fetching data from GEOFON (http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de
http://geofon.gfz-potsdam.de)Received 1.8 KB of metadata in 1.0 seconds
(1.8 KB/s)Processed metadata for 195 channel epochs in 2.1 secondsCannot
open output file 'GEOFON-./foo.mseed': No such file or directory*
and I don't get any data. Here is the script:

#!/bin/bash

elat=-4.952
elon=94.330
dmin=0.0
dmax=10.0
min_dur=3550
dur=3600

etime=2016-03-02,13:49:48

ddir=.

${fetch} -radius ${elat}:${elon}:${dmax}:${dmin} -s $stime -e $etime -F\
-chan "BH?,HH?,EH?,SH?" -msl $min_dur -o $ddir/$ofile -sd $ddir -m
$ddir/meta.data

Thanks,

    Hi Keith,

    Have you tried changing the -o to -O and -m to -M? I think when it uses the
    Federator it needs the capital letters to merge from multiple data centers.

      OK, I just tried that and I did get a different kind of error message:

        Hi Keith,

        There are a small handful of things going on. To address some of them there is a new version of FetchData (2016.260) available here:
        https://seiscode.iris.washington.edu/projects/ws-fetch-scripts/files

        Direct link:
        https://seiscode.iris.washington.edu/attachments/download/1226/FetchData-2016.260

        With the latest version if you take out the -msl (minimum segment length) and -sd (SAC PZ directory) options in your calls the requests should complete.

        More details below:

        Rob's suggestion to use the -O and -M options will avoid the first problem you were seeing, you will not be able to see which data came from which data center though.

        * When federating, FetchData adds a data center identifier (e.g. IRISDMC, GEOFON) to the output files when using -o and -m. That didn't work well with the path you gave. This is fixed in the latest version.

        * Most data centers other than the DMC do not support the -msl (minimum segment length) and -lso (longest segment only) options. A warning has been added to FetchData when you use these options while federating. You probably shouldn't use them when federating, I don't think any center except the DMC supports them.

        * When there are problems with a request FetchData will retry, when it makes sense, up to 10 times, pausing 10 seconds between. With your version of the script it retried 60 times, so it looks like an endless loop but would eventually give up. The latest version will only retry 2 times when federating to reduce the wasted time.

        There is also a -nr (no retry) option, but it will cause the script to completely give up on any sort of errors and it would not continue on in the list of data centers.

        * Requesting SAC Poles and Zeros is only supported by the IRISDMC and NCEDC centers, other data centers do not have a SACPZ service. FetchData will print a warning that it cannot get SACPZ, but it might leave you wondering where the others went.

        cheers,
        Chad
