Within Delft-FEWS, the datasets are exported to the archive in a workflow using the ExportArchiveModule. This workflow needs to be scheduled on a regular interval to archive all relevant data. To prevent dependencies on other processes, the ExportArchiveModule is envisioned to write directly into the archive file storage. The FSS thus needs to be able to have write access to those disks.
For each kind of dataset, the ExportArchiveModule checks the database for changes over a (configured) relative period. It exports any data which meets the export instructions and has changed within this period. Datasets are archived in a pre-defined directory structure, which is based on areaId, date and dataset.
The schema of the associated configuration file (Figure 4.1) is defined at:
http://fews.wldelft.nl/schemas/version1.0/exportArchiveModule.xsd.

Observations archiving by Delft-FEWS


For observations a dataset is generated for every area on a daily basis. The associated directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows:
<archive root>/<yyyy>/<MM>/<areaId>/<dd>/observed/
When Delft-FEWS generates the netcdf file, data is written to the same data block when the entire matrix is filled, i.e. all time steps are regular and none of the values is missing. For those locations with irregular time stamps, or missing values, a separate data block is used.
Within the netCDF file, each data block is accompanied by a header. Within each header a metadata item called 'timeseries_sets_xml' is included, holding the exact definition of the timeSeriesSet as the data was stored in the FEWS database. This feature allows full reproducibility of the time series via an Import workflow in a Delft-FEWS stand alone application, assuming that the associated Delft-FEWS configuration is in place.
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportObserved section to configure the observed timeseries that need to be archived (see Figure 4.2). Table 4.1 documents the associated elements: Anchor_Ref376780433_Ref376780433

*When an existing file is locked while it needs to be overwritten, the export function writes a new temporary file. The FileSweeper, a scheduled process, renames this file when the lock is removed from the original file.

Delft-FEWS can export messages to the archive via the ArchiveExportModule (exportMessages activity).
For messages a dataset is generated for every area on a daily basis. The associated directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows.
<archiveRoot>/<yyyy>/<MM>/<areaId>/<dd>/messages/
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportMessages section to configure the messages that need to be archived (see Figure 4.3). Currently only ForecasterNotes can be archived. Table 4.2 documents the associated elements:

Delft-FEWS can export external forecast time series to the archive via the ArchiveExportModule (exportExternalForecast activity).
For external forecasts a dataset is generated for every area for every source for every forecast. The associated directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows:
<archiveRoot>/<yyyy>/<MM>/<areaId>/<dd> /external_forecasts/<sourceId>_<ExtForecastTime>
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportExternalForecast section to configure the time series that need to be archived (see Figure 4.4). Table 4.3 documents the associated elements:

Delft-FEWS can export simulations to the archive via the ArchiveExportModule (exportSimulations activity). Typically this archiving activity is included in the workflow that computes the final approved forecast.
The associated root directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows:
<archiveRoot>/<yyyy>/<MM>/<areaId>/<dd>/simulated/<workflowId><TimeZero><DispatchTime>
Where <dd> refers to the date of the forecast time T0.
This directory holds the metaData.xml as well as runInfo.xml file with the FEWS taskrun properties (see Figure 3.8). Within this directory the following sub-folders may exist:
/timeseries, /reports, /modifiers, /states
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportSimulated section to configure the messages that need to be archived (see Figure 3.7). The associated specification is given in Table 4.4.

Delft-FEWS can export the current configuration to the archive via the ArchiveExportModule (exportConfig activity). The configuration thus is exported as part of the workflow. The associated root directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows:
<archiveRoot>/<config>/<areaId>/<yyyymmdd>/
The date refers to the revision date of the configuration. The file name typically holds the revisionId.
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportConfig section to setup the export of the Configuration (see Figure 4.6). This is due to be revised as the same relativePeriod based export mechanism should be adopted for checking what to export (see Table 4.5).

Delft-FEWS can export rating curves to the archive via the ArchiveExportModule (exportRatingCurves activity). The entire history of the rating curves is exported. The associated root directory structure of the Delft-FEWS export for this type of dataset is as follows FEWS-10198: update directory structure to above setup:
<archiveRoot>/ratingcurves/<areaId>
The configurator can choose between exporting the full set or just the rating curves that have changed, with or without modifier changes.
The exportArchiveModule.xsd has a dedicated exportRatingCurve section to setup the export of the Configuration. Table 4.6 and Figure 4.7 discuss the general section. Anchor
