Execution times of dfos tools
Certain dfos tools are operationally
critical since they close the QC loop between the Paranal Observatory and QC Garching.
In particular, these are:
- calChecker (monitoring the calibration plan completeness)
- autoDaily (providing incremental processing of daytime calibrations and feeding
back product quality and instrument health information).
These tools need to provide a near-realtime feedback and are therefore
called by cronjobs in regular intervals, typically once or twice per hour. Their
performance is critical for the QC process and is measured by this execution time
