DM-8339, a workflow (named ciHsc) was made to reproduce the internal processing flow of the package ci_hsc. Used as CI tests in development and monitoring, ci_hsc contains all 10 major science processing tasks as of the end of 2016. It outputs all dataset types as noted here.
However, because ci_hsc considers one patch only, it does not represent the workflow complexity in making coadd and steps beyond. Only exposures overlapped a patch of the sky are the necessary inputs for making the coadd of that patch. Some lookup or queries would be needed to know what inputs are needed for a coadd job. Understanding this complexity is one main motivation of this ticket.
This new workflow (named miniHscDrp) uses a subset of the ci_hsc data and the same 10 tasks but considers four patches (through a different skymap config), so is more complex than the ciHsc workflow. In total this workflow has 321 files and 112 jobs:
16 ProcessCcd (8 visits, 2 ccd each),
32 makeCoaddTempExp (8 visits x 4 patches),
8 assembleCoadd (4 patches x 2 filters),
4 mergeCoaddDetections (4 patches),
and 7 pre-runs. Plots are attached.
