How to toggle endianness conversion for VIIRS?

Postby geoffc » Fri Mar 29, 2013 2:39 pm

While I have been testing the VIIRS Cloud Mask and Aerosol controllers, I have been using alternately the canned test data which comes with ADL (which is all Big Endian), and SDR, ANC and GridIP files generated locally outside of ADL (all Little Endian). I expected that ADL would convert the BE test data to LE when running on my LE x86 test machine, but it appears that the endianness conversion is also being performed (I assume erroneously) on LE data. This has resulted in the float ANC data (only affected datatype as far as I can tell) having the BE representation of the proper float32 value (-495925376 as opposed to -999.700012 for a bow-tie pixel) once the ANC data has been read into the appropriate data structure in the controller. For reference, I plotted the BE and LE ancillary data in such a way that I have to specify the endianness of the input files: all plots came out as expected, so I am confident the BE and LE ancillary files have the endianness that I think they do.

I ran the VIIRS cloud mask and Aerosol controllers through a debugger, and printed out the first pixel of each of the SDR, ANC and GridIP data arrays once they had been ingested into the controller. Below we show the debugger output for the BE VCM input data on the left, and the LE VCM input data on the right...

We can see that for the LE data, the float ancillary data (tpwIP, sfc_temp, windSpeed, toc_ndvi) seem to be clearly affected. For the LE terrainHeight, 7420 is the BE representation for -996 for an int16 datatype, so I think terrainHeight is affected also.

We have similarly for the aerosol controller...

Again the float ANC data (windspd, winddir, pw, sairtemp, ozconc, psl) appears to have the wrong endianness. Note that for the aerosol case I have also included some values from the various LUTS. These are always BE files, whether I am using BE or LE SDR/ANC/GriIP files. We can see that the LUT values seem to be OK in both cases.

To try and figure out what ADL was doing with regards to endian conversions, I grepped the log files looking for instances where ADL found it necessary to convert. For the VCM (BE left, LE right)...

For the LE case on the right the VIIRS-MOD-GRC* are converted because I am using the BE VIIRS-MOD-GRC* files as placeholders (they're not used to do any granulation). And I also use BE LUTS . The VIIRS-ANC* and VIIRS-GridIP-VIIRS* are however LE and should not be converted. The SDRs are (correctly) not converted as they are unpacked from HDF5 as LE files.

And for the AOT...

Here we see that for the LE case on the right, we are again using the BE LUTS, so they are converted. However, the VIIRS-ANC-* files are all LE and should not be converted.

Of course, all of the above is predicated on the assumption that if all of the inputs have the same endianness as the test machine (Little Endian in my case), that there should be no conversions done. Is this the case.

I tried changing the "DataEndianType" for the various ancillary inputs specified in ProEdrViirsCM_CFG.xml and ProEdrViirsAerosol_CFG.xml, but that did not appear to have any effect. Are there any other ways to control what input files are subject to endianness conversion?

Re: How to toggle endianness conversion for VIIRS?

I just found a reference to specifying the endianness of the inputs in the associated asc files by adding "("ByteOrder" STRING EQ "LE")" ...

Re: How to toggle endianness conversion for VIIRS?

Postby bhenders » Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:16 am

Geoff,

The ByteOrder metadata denotes the endianness of an input when running an algorithm in ADL with metadata on. The DataEndainType in the algorithm config files is only used when running in no metadata mode in ADL to denote the endianness of the specified files.

Getting the ByteOrder metadata set correctly for the endianness of any data you create is very important and the framework uses that in it's determination of whether to do endian conversion on the data.

Thanks,

Re: How to toggle endianness conversion for VIIRS? [RESOLVED

Postby geoffc » Mon Apr 01, 2013 1:41 pm

Thanks Bryan,
I was going in circles with the *CFG.xml endian stuff, being able to specify the endianness on the run in the metadata is a big help, as I want my package to be able to generate BE or LE ancillary. After adding the "ByteOrder" directive to the ancillary metadata (I am using "withMetadata"), the AOT ran to completion. However, I am still getting...

Code: Select all
Breakpoint 1, ProEdrViirsAerosol::AOT_main (this=0x2aab1c29bbe0) at ProEdrViirsAerosol.cpp:4255

(gdb) print *(mdl_data.windspd + 0)  = -495925376
(gdb) print *(mdl_data.winddir + 0)  = -495925376
(gdb) print *(mdl_data.pw + 0)  = -495925376
(gdb) print *(mdl_data.sairtemp + 0)  = -495925376
(gdb) print *(mdl_data.ozconc + 0)  = -495925376
(gdb) print *(mdl_data.psl + 0)  = -495925376


...at line 4255 of ProEdrViirsAerosol.cpp, even where the AOT runs successfully. I need to check the ancillary values later in the algorithm, especially where there are some sanity checks for ancillary values, to convince myself whether or not I'm running the AOT properly.

I checked the log files for endian conversions, the only things that are flagged as being converted are the LUTS, which I know are BE, so that seems to be in order.

I'm still getting the odd crash due to bad input to the molecular optical depth code, but now that I know the endianness issue is sorted this shouldn't be difficult to track down.

Thanks for the replies, I'm marking this as resolved.
