This section describes the procedure a data node administrator have to follow to install or to update an ESGF data node.
This section describes the prerequisite steps that need to be carefully follow to configure CMIP6 data publication on the data node side.
This section describes the prerequisite steps that need to be carefully follow to configure CMIP6 data publication on the index node side.
This section describes how to configure the metrics collection on the data node.
This section describes how to configure the CoG front end so that the CMIP6 CoG pages and the associated search works as expected.
This section describes the usage of the ESGF test suite that will validate that a data or index node is working as expected. This test-suite should be run after the installation and configuration phase has been completed.
This section describes prerequisite steps needed to apply the appropriate policies to the data access.
This section describes a tools that permits the data provider to check the consistency of time axis coordinates across several files. Having this quality control well ahead of your data publication step can save you a lot of time.
This section describes how to configure the PrePARE quality control tool independently from the ESGF publisher. Having this quality control well ahead of your data publication step can save you a lot of time.
This section describes the usage of the esgprep tool. This tool will take of your CMIP data directory structure and will greatly ease dataset version management.
This section describe steps required to publish the first version of a new CMIP6 dataset. After those steps your CMIP6 dataset will be findable and accessible from the ESGF portal.
Note on publishing: please do not manually edit esg.cmip6.ini to add missing information if your data files won’t publish. In such a case, it is likely that either the model is unregistered or there is an error in the metadata that needs to be corrected. Please contact (1) the modeling group to ensure all fields are properly registered ; (2) support from CDNOT to get the publisher config (esg.cmip6.ini file) updated. See (https://github.com/WCRP-CMIP/CMIP6_CVs/) for the most up-to-date catalog of registered entities (source_id, institution_id, etc.)
The following steps are for users of the esgpublisher version(s) 4.x and older. If you have upgraded esg-publisher (esgcet) to v5.x or interested in doing so, then skip to the last step (j.).
For users who have upgraded to version 5.x or plan to, installation, configuration and usage are covered here:
This section describes how data providers can describe issues affecting datasets they have published to ESGF for CMIP6.
This section describes the step you need to follow to withdraw a CMIP6 dataset from ESGF.
This section describes the step you need to take to publish a new version of a CMIP6 dataset on ESGF. Old version will still be accessible but the latest version will appear first by default.
