Adding KAGRA events to GraceDB
Created by Alex on January 28, 2017. Copied from redmine (https://bugs.ligo.org/redmine/issues/5071)
The purpose of this ticket is to track the future development of the uploading and sharing protocol for events from KAGRA. The below points came as a result of a face-to-face conversation at the University of Tokyo on January 28, 2017. Open issues include:
- How to compartmentalize KAGRA events from LIGO events? Options include (but are not limited to): Standing up a separate KAGRA GraceDB instance. KAGRA will use separate authentication to restrict access, but access to coincident LIGO events would be unavailable. Using the existing GraceDB infrastructure, but restricting access to events to users with a separate KAGRA authentication, e.g., only KAGRA users can have access to events uploaded by KAGRA.
- Event data-exchange between LIGO and KAGRA users. Scenarios include events that are determined to be significant due to LIGO-KAGRA coincidence; what data about the event would be available to LIGO/KAGRA members?
- If and how to restrict KAGRA uploads in the age of public LIGO data? This is an open issue for VIRGO events as well.
- Event data format. What will be the format of events uploaded to GraceDB? Would there need to be modification to GraceDB's data parser to accept KAGRA events?
