Initial Request

CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED

If I want to generate a plot showing aggregated ME values instead of those
produced by averaging previously computed ME values what do I need to do? I
created a plot of ME for each valid time from 00Z to 23Z using the "Summary
Statistics" method and then tried clicking on "Aggregation Statistics", then
"Scalar partial sums", but the there was an error and it could not generate
the plot. The attached plot shows the plot I generated using the Summary
Statistics method. For this plot, you can see that the values of NStat at
the top along the x-axis indicate that 3 ME values were averaged to produce
the plotted ME value. I need to plot aggregated ME values instead of
averaged ME values.

Thanks.

Subject: question about METViewer V2.11 (UNCLASSIFIED)
From: John Halley Gotway
Time: Thu May 07 17:34:41 2020

Hi John,

I see you'd like some direction as to how you can change from plotting
the
mean of daily statistics to plotting an aggregate statistics in
METviewer.

It sounds like you're on the right track. To briefly outline the
logic, you
are currently...
(1) Telling METviewer to query the ME statistic from the table which
stores
the CNT line type.  Then METviewer summarizes multiple ME statistics
by
computing their mean (or median, depending on which you choose).

And what you'd like to do instead is...
(2) Tell METviewer to query the partial sum statistics from the table
which
stores the SL1L2 line type.  Then METviewer aggregates multiple SL1L2
partial sums by computing their weighted average, where the weight is
determined by the TOTAL column (which is the number of matched pairs).
Then recompute the ME statistic from the aggregated partial sums.

Since we're talking about ME, you'll find that both (1) and (2)
produce the
same result as long as TOTAL remains constant.  However, if the number
of
matched pairs on day 1 is more than the numbers on days 2 and 3, it'll
have
greater weight.

To illustrate, I worked up a simple example using this METviewer
instance:
http://www.dtcenter.org/met/metviewer/metviewer1.jsp

The ME_mean value plot illustrates (1) while MET_agg illustrates (2).
I
manually fixed the Y1 axis so they are the same on both plots.  You'll
notice that the results are very slightly different.  So the number of
matched pairs must have changed over the 7 cases being plotted.

Note that you can save the .xml files to your local machine, and then
use
the "Load XML" button on METviewer to recover my state. But to
clarify, the
differences are:
- In the "Statistics" box, change from "Summary" to "Aggregation
Statistics".
- And also change the dropdown list from "None" to "Scalar partial
sums
(SL1L2)".

This will only work if your database actually contains that SL1L2
data.

Hope that example helps.

Thanks,
John

Time: Fri May 08 08:57:01 2020

CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED

John -

Thanks for the detailed explanation which focused exactly on what I'm
trying
to do. I checked my database to confirm it has the table for the SL1L2
line
type. ("line_data_sl1l2" appears after command "show tables;" )

I checked the .stat files which were loaded into the database and they
contain
the SL1L2 LINE_TYPE.

I've attached a screen capture of my METViewer (web UI) display to
show my
settings and the XML output file for the failed plot. I've also
attached the
"load_spec_file" which I used to load the database in case you can see
how I
loaded the data. I clicked on the "Log" tab on the right side of the
UI page
and the dialog had an error because it needs the GSL library to
function. See
the attached log file. I recall that my sysadmin was able to install
GSL
(gsl-devel) using the instructions provided by Tatiana, but when we
tried to
load the  R package for GSL (install.packages('gsl')) we encountered a
problem
and never resolved it. We decided that the impact of not having it was
not
significant at the time. Is this possibly causing the problem or
something
else?

R/
John

I'm going to reassign this ticket to Tatiana.  I think she'd be better
suited to debug it with you.

Hi John,
I remember you were having difficulties installing gsl package for R
so we decided not to install it for that moment and proseed with it
when it is needed.
>From your log file I see that you run agg_stat.R which requires gsl
only for some operations.
We can start from commenting out this library and rerun your plot.
Hopefully, it will work for you and we can postpone installing gsl for
later. But if you continue to get errors from this script - then gsl
has to be installed.

To comment out gsl you need:
1. Write privileges for
/opt/tomcat7/webapps/metviewer/R_work/include/agg_stat.R
2. If you can edit this file, open it
3. Put # before library(gsl);
it should look like this: #library(gsl);
4. Save file

Let me know if this works for you or we need to install gsl

Subject: question about METViewer V2.11 (UNCLASSIFIED)

Time: Mon May 11 10:17:42 2020

CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED

Hi Tatiana -

the file
which you show in the path below, but it's not accessible from my home
on my
linux machine. I had been communicating with my system admin by email
on this
issue just when I received your email and I have just provided him
with your
fix. He confirmed that gsl-devel is installed and he is going to try
installing the R package for GSL first to see if he can reproduce the
original
error which I was getting last July and he may be able to fix that
issue
himself. If not, he will apply your fix. I will let you know how this
goes.

R/
John

Hi John,
I remember you were having difficulties installing gsl package for R
so we
decided not to install it for that moment and proseed with it when it
is
needed.
>From your log file I see that you run agg_stat.R which requires gsl
only for
some operations.
We can start from commenting out this library and rerun your plot.
Hopefully,
it will work for you and we can postpone installing gsl for later. But
if you
continue to get errors from this script - then gsl has to be
installed.

To comment out gsl you need:
1. Write privileges for
/opt/tomcat7/webapps/metviewer/R_work/include/agg_stat.R
2. If you can edit this file, open it
3. Put # before library(gsl);
it should look like this: #library(gsl); 4. Save file 5. Rerun your
plot.

Let me know if this works for you or we need to install gsl

Tatiana

Tatiana -

My system admin was able to reproduce the error when attempting to
package for gsl. I sent him the info you provided me last July which
pointed
us in the direction of a potential version incompatibility issue which
might
be causing the error. He concluded yesterday that, he thinks the issue
is a
compatibility issue between the installed version of gsl (gsl-devel)
and that
expected by the R package. His next step is to try updating gsl to a
version.

Tatiana -

My system admin successfully installed gsl and then installed the R
package for gsl. I did some testing, but I am still unable to generate
the plot of aggregated ME error. The error we are getting is as
follows:

==== Start Rscript error ====
DLLpath = DLLpath, ...):
unable to load shared object '/home/jraby/R/R-
3.6.1/library/gsl/libs/gsl.so':
libgsl.so.25: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory
Execution halted

The file gsl.so is on my system at the above location:

[jraby at carson2 libs]\$ pwd
/home/jraby/R/R-3.6.1/library/gsl/libs
[jraby at carson2 libs]\$ ll
total 388
-rwxrw-r--. 1 jraby users 394416 May 13 15:24 gsl.so

We are continuing to troubleshoot this error, but if you have any
ideas about the cause we would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks.

Hi John,

so we
decided not to install it for that moment and proseed with it when it

>From your log file I see that you run agg_stat.R which requires gsl

We can start from commenting out this library and rerun your plot.
Hopefully,
it will work for you and we can postpone installing gsl for later. But
if you
continue to get errors from this script - then gsl has to be
installed.

To comment out gsl you need:
1. Write privileges for
/opt/tomcat7/webapps/metviewer/R_work/include/agg_stat.R
2. If you can edit this file, open it
3. Put # before library(gsl);
it should look like this: #library(gsl); 4. Save file 5. Rerun your
plot.

Let me know if this works for you or we need to install gsl

From: Tatiana Burek
Time: Mon May 18 15:10:49 2020

Hi John,
Do you use the same user name 'jraby' to run Tomcat?
If the library is installed in your home directory and the Tomcat is
running as some other user then it might not have the permissions to
access the files in
/home/jraby/.

Hi John,
Do you use the same user name 'jraby' to run Tomcat?
If the library is installed in your home directory and the Tomcat is
running as some other user then it might not have the permissions to
access the files in /home/jraby/.

Subject: question about METViewer V2.11 (UNCLASSIFIED)
From: Raby, John W USA CIV
Time: Thu May 21 14:04:55 2020

CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED

Tatiana -

We are now able to use the use the option to query the partial sum
statistics to produce aggregated values of the error statistics. My
in resolving the issue he was having with the R package for GSL and
GSL:

"the GSL package software is an independent package that on its own
needs to be
installed, and the version needs to be compatible with the version of
R that
is installed.  Second, understanding that the R gsl package is NOT the
same
as the GSL package software, that was a big confusion for me.  Once I
figured this out I learned how the GSL software and the R gsl package
worked
together, which is still kind of fuzzy to me, but I had enough of a
concept
to get it to work.  Lastly, hope the environment setting that I put
into
your .bashrc will continue to remain, and load when you source them."

Hi John,
Do you use the same user name 'jraby' to run Tomcat?
If the library is installed in your home directory and the Tomcat is
running as some other user then it might not have the permissions to
access the files in /home/jraby/.
