      Description

      The lsst-dm/sample-avro-alert repository includes a simulateAlerts.py script which generates schema-compliant alert packets with pseudorandom contents.

      In this review of DM-17549, Eric Bellm made a number of suggestions to make these alerts more realistic, and the generation process more flexible. Specifically:

      • Make the number of visits per year 825/10.
      • Add explicit arguments for --num-prv-DiaSources, --num-prv-DiaForcedSources, and --num-prv-nonDetections rather than embedding that logic in the __main__ function.
      • Make the default number of alerts to be generated 1.
