data.aggregate.publishnotify generates and sends a report that a period of data has been passed and needs to be published. It may inspect the data to determine any additional information in the email. It is normally invoked with a quarter of data at a time. What is in the report is controlled by publish.check.conf and publish.spikefilter.conf. The targets of the resultant email are determined by notify.conf.

It is intended to be called as part one of the aggregators invoked by data.aggregate.station.

See data.publish.

Command Line Usage

data.aggregate.publishnotify [--print] station start end


start and end

The time specifiers for the data to be retrieved. Start is inclusive while end is exclusive, so all data contained within the half open interval [start,end) will be returned. Any convertible time format is accepted.


The station identifier code. For example 'brw'. Case insensitive.


Print the report to standard output instead of sending an email.
