What LTACAT pipeline backend can do for you

  • provides a rest API for running LTA processing pipelines
  • supports multiple methods of running pipelines

This is the pipeline backend for the LTACAT web portal. It provides a REST API, which the LTACAT portal can use to retrieve a list of available pipelines and their configurations options. By seperating this backend from the web portal itself, the implementation details of executing the pipelines can be handled separately.

Currently two different methods of executing pipelines are supported: xenon-flow and IEE. In the first, pipelines are submitted to a xenon-flow service configured to submit to a certain compute infrastructure. In the second, the data transfer and job submission is forwarded to the IEE, which handles it from there.
