TallFurryMan added a comment to D19393: Prevent rescheduling aborted jobs until all jobs are processed.

With that change incorporated (own build of Dec 2), my eqmod-based setup stalled at least once just after the first alignment.
That first alignment required an adjustment, the mount operated the requested slew, but the alignment module didn't proceed further.

Oh I totally forgot about this one. Actually, it's interesting in the sense it can be used to ensure a mean ADU over the frame. That is, calculate the ideal exposure duration. But there are things to fix, as seen in the comments. I keep this in my list and I'll have a look just because it's cool.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D24232: Hitting a constraint sets a job to IDLE instead of COMPLETE so that it might be restarted later.

OK so as far as I have investigated this issue doesn't seem to be a regression from D22446: when Scheduler wakes up, Scheduler::wakeUpScheduler() calls Scheduler::start(), which calls Scheduler::startJobEvaluation(), which resets all jobs to JOB_IDLE.
Scheduler::startJobEvaluation() is supposed to be called from the UI when the end-user really presses the play button.
Here state is SCHEDULER_IDLE, and the wake up procedure doesn't seem to care whether Scheduler is actually more or less already running.
That needs a bit more time to check.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D24232: Hitting a constraint sets a job to IDLE instead of COMPLETE so that it might be restarted later.

Proceeded with a test with two schedule jobs, one that is able to finish inside one night, and one that cannot.
First job runs after dusk, and manages to finish before dawn, and is marked Completed.
Second job starts to run, is preempted by dawn, and is marked Scheduled for the next night while the first remains Completed.
So far so good.
But when Scheduler wakes up on next dusk, the first job is reset to Scheduled and is run again.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D24232: Hitting a constraint sets a job to IDLE instead of COMPLETE so that it might be restarted later.

Still in progress, so far so good.
This morning I tested a very simple Simulator observation schedule using Deneb with default constrains, and a SimClock interval of 5 minutes.
Deneb starts after dusk, proceeds to focus and align, is cancelled when dawn is there and is rescheduled to the next night.
That situation repeats indefinitely as if a multi-night schedule.
It would be quite important to use pre-emptive shutdown here, as the Mount Simulator probably wrapped cables up multiple times during my test... (I spotted a wrong warning there, I'll fix that)

I have a small request : when phd2 is not started and Ekos starts, Ekos will keep the guider module disconnected as expected. But when Ekos requests the guider module to start guiding, I think no attempt to connect again is made. Could this be added in? This would improve robustness. Well that can be another diff of course.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D24151: Summary: Connect Scheduler sleep timer to Simulation Clock scale change..

Actually the use case I stumbled upon was:

  • launch Ekos in the afternoon
  • change the simclock to see how the sky is at 22:00
  • configure schedule with objects available at that time
  • start scheduler, expecting it to fall asleep until 22:00

TallFurryMan added a comment to D24151: Summary: Connect Scheduler sleep timer to Simulation Clock scale change..

After playing with this diff, I think I will add a warning pop-up when the simulation clock is too far from the system clock. That would be a timed pop-up defaulting to start the schedule. But this pop-up could also reset the simulation time instead. If we go for full-dbus, there should be a way for the remote user to intercept such requests. Opinions?

D24151 should help us debugging those situations: it allows to change the simulation step in KStars and have Scheduler update the delay it waits sleeping when that happens.
Changing the simulation scale also helps bringing restriction events in faster.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D22446: Adding error handling strategy control to Scheduler.

So we try to set jobs to COMPLETED based on frame count, we make sure we do not touch the frame count except when receiving a frame or recounting storage frames, and we do that state change when starting evaluation only? In other words, we never complete jobs during execution? The problem with states is that we must not jitter between values needlessly. Do you have a state diagram in head?

Oh no. You mean I've been tweaking the UI to death just because I thought you meant 800x600 and not 800x800? That's embarrassing for the hairs I've been pulling out for that diff...
Could you simply tweak as an additional differential the minimum size block at the very beginning of manager.ui to relax my restriction to 768 instead of 568?

Sep 19 2019, 6:25 AM · KDE Edu
TallFurryMan added a comment to D22446: Adding error handling strategy control to Scheduler.

Yes, given my conditions, make scheduler complete a job, then abort a second one because of a guide failure. Have the second job re-scheduled far away enough that scheduler falls asleep. Let scheduler wake up to process jobs again. When scheduler wakes up, it re-evaluates jobs, and the completed job is incorrectly reset for execution. Using preemptive shutdown and dawn and dusk offsets could ease that test by reducing the amount of time to wait.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D23869: Implement customizable dusk and dawn offsets..

I didn't touch the manager, except for adding the dimension you mentioned and that was not there in the first place. As you can see, the manager is unable to achieve 800x600 without overlapping gadgets as it is now. I made sure Scheduler was not preventing the dimension from being reduced to the required size. The manager issue must be tackled by another diff.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D23892: Fix HFR calculation, add HFR on focus view, adjust focus UI..

The labels are simple drawText calls. There could be a first loop consolidating a list of rectangles bounding labels, then a second pushing labels away from each other but keeping them close to their star marker. But the added value is not high enough for me to implement this now. It'd more important to be able to tweak SEP parameters to detect stars more efficiently I think.

Awesome job, Eric!
I've tested it with simulators and everything looks good. Having the HFR-values displayed makes it much more transparent what the focusing algorithm does.

Thanks. Along with the area filter, it's really more stable than the single-star focus procedure in my opinion (with my setup in fact).

  1. Advanced tab .. maybe we should rename this to "Parameters"?

That would make "Settings" and "Parameters". Maybe I should replace "Settings" with "Basic" if I move some stuff in from "Advanced"?
I'll try to move stuff around. I would expect for instance SEP parameters to get a new tab.

Manager dimensions restricted to 796x568, to leave room for window manager decoration and remain under 800x600.
Rehauled the Scheduler UI completely, removed ALL size specificities, and had the layout manager do its job on its own for the entire UI.
Qt layouts are nice, but one need to trust logic and hierarchy, not Qt Designer views.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D22446: Adding error handling strategy control to Scheduler.

OK, understood. But why did it happen that no frame has been captured? Was it due to the case that as soon as it would have been there turn to be started, they already hit their altitude or twilight limit, right?

Yes, the first job started, proceeded to focus, but in the meantime altitude got under 15°, at 14.6°, and the job aborted (completed).
The second job started at that moment, but immediately saw that its altitude was lower than 15° (I think), and aborted too (completed).

Sep 18 2019, 7:49 PM · KDE Edu
TallFurryMan added a comment to D22446: Adding error handling strategy control to Scheduler.

Yeah, the issue I haven't mentioned is that those jobs are marked completed without any frame captured, so the behavior is not correct. I believe that setting those as ABORTED would have been OK : in the case of my mosaic, there's no problem retrying the job at the end of the queue, or "immediately", here rescheduled at a valid time.

Sep 18 2019, 5:43 PM · KDE Edu
TallFurryMan added a comment to D22446: Adding error handling strategy control to Scheduler.

This night I had a 25-job mosaic run. All jobs were constrained with altitude 15° and twilight.
In the morning, job #11 failed to find a guide star after 2 runs and was aborted (OK).
When job #12 crossed the altitude restriction at 15° while focusing, it was incorrectly set to completed instead of aborted (KO).
When job #13 crossed the altitude restriction at 14.3° before starting, it was incorrectly set to completed instead of aborted (KO).
Further jobs were kept as scheduled, and observatory fell asleep as expected (OK).

TallFurryMan added a comment to D23869: Implement customizable dusk and dawn offsets..

We need applyConfig to trigger updates in modules following a change of settings. For instance, altering lead time in the options requires a re-evaluation of the schedule. Granted, there are not so many cases for now because most procedures use options when they execute, without preview. Scheduler prepares execution and present it to the end-user for verification as a job list. Thus while the evaluation would be done again when starting the observation, and options taken into account at that moment, scheduler needs to update its presentation when options are applied to retain coherence.

TallFurryMan added a comment to D23735: Improvements is estimateJobTime.

My opinion on this is that observatory setups are too diverse to use a set predefined durations. Those durations need to be at least customizable via options. We thus get a whole new set of options, incidentally one or two per Ekos module.
Based on this observation, it means the estimation of procedure duration needs to rely on each module instead of being computed by scheduler. By extension, each module has to be responsible for the calculation of those duration, based on the actual work it has to do.
Therefore, I suggest we review that estimation activity when each Ekos module is assigned a blob of settings, as I presented on the forum.
"Hi Ekos module, here's what you need to do!" "- Yeah, that will probably take me <insert double> hours!"
Makes sense?

So please rebase your changes and eventually issue a preliminary differential to make observatory_work live.

Do we create a feature branch for this, or do we use the trunk?

TallFurryMan accepted D19648: Keep GUI parameters for scheduler and capture in sync with row selection.

No more problem with reordering of jobs when the scheduler is running. The behavior is now coherent with the Capture module.
However, the end-user now has the same feedback when clicking (job characteristics are displayed) and double-clicking (job characteristics are edited).
But that's a better behavior I think (and it matches with the draft UI I'm preparing).

TallFurryMan added a comment to D20068: Shifted scheduler job specific scorings from Scheduler to SchedulerJob.

I think we should merge this. I'll then separate scheduler.cpp into several file to try to clarify what functions are for. I'll also separate the interface from the implementation, so we don't have too many private stuff cluttering.
