Government Resource for Algorithm Verification, Independent Test, and Evaluation (GRAVITE) system is a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) system, developed and deployed by Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) Ground Project to support Calibration and Validation (Cal/Val), Data Quality Monitoring, and Algorithm Investigation, Tuning and Integration. GRAVITE enables novice and expert users to discover and obtain data easily by using standard protocols. The Incinerator is a component of the GRAVITE version 3.0 (GV3.0) system. It is responsible for system maintenance tasks and deletes expired files, expired subscription links, expired PGE execution directories, and generates statistics periodically.

The Incinerator will delete files and directories based on database fields and/or configuration and file age. It must be able to delete files and directories with minimal impact on the system.

GRAVITE capabilities are discussed in the following articles in this section:

“GRAVITE Distribution,” (GSC-16827-1);
“GRAVITE Upload Tool,” (GSC-16828-1);
“GRAVITE Planner,” (GSC-16829-1);
“GRAVITE Database,” (GSC-16831-1);
“GRAVITE Pull Server,” (GSC-16927-1);
“GRAVITE Monitor,” (GSC-16928-1).

This work was done by Peyush Jain, Richard Ullman, and Gyanesh Chander of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; and Wayne McCullough of Global Science & Technology, Inc. GSC-16830-1
