GWSumm: the gravitational-wave summary information system¶
gwsumm package is a tool used by the
Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO)
to collect, aggregate, and visually summarise the sundry data produced
throughout the experiment in order to characterise instrument performance.
The output of this package, known internally as the ‘summary pages’, give an archive of a number of figures or merit, including time-series amplitude trends, frequency spectra and spectrograms, and transient event triggers.
This package includes a collection of command-line utilities and a python module:
GWSumm is best installed with conda:
conda install -c conda-forge gwsumm
but can also be installed with pip:
python -m pip install gwsumm
Note, users with
LIGO.ORG credentials have access to a software
container with a regularly-updated build of GWSumm. For more
information please refer to the
LSCSoft Conda documentation.
