NAME

AOFlagger - execute an RFI strategy on one or several observations

SYNOPSIS

aoflagger [ options] <obs1> [<obs2> [..]]

DESCRIPTION

This program will execute an RFI strategy as can be created with the RFI gui and executes it on one or several observations. This tool supports at least the Casa measurement set, the SDFITS and Filterbank formats. See the documentation for support of other file types.
The old name of this program is rficonsole.

OPTIONS

-v
produce verbose output
-j
overrides the number of threads specified in the strategy (default: one thread for each CPU core)
-strategy
specifies a possible customized strategy
-direct-read
perform the slowest IO but will always work.
-indirect-read
reorder the measurement set before starting, which is normally faster but requires free disk space to reorder the data to.
-memory-read
read the entire measurement set in memory. This is the fastest, but requires much memory.
-auto-read-mode
select either memory or direct mode based on available memory (default).
-skip-flagged
skip an ms if it has already been processed by AOFlagger according to its HISTORY table.
-uvw
reads uvw values (some exotic strategies require these)
-column <name>
specify column to flag
-bands <list>
comma separated list of (zero-indexed) band ids to process
-fields <list>
comma separated list of (zero-indexed) field ids to process
