An update for the SeisNZ fleet!
Released August 2014, this upgrade is to be installed on the machines connected to the seismometers.
If your version of jAmaseis needs updating, you will see an alert titled “Incompatible Version“. The text below the title will say something about needing to upgrade to version 1.0.2.x to be compatible with the IRIS data collection server. This incompatibility does not affect our ability to upload the screen grabs -just the way in which the instrumentation data is pushed to IRIS -given we are not yet doing this in any concerted fashion, this update is not essential.
The following is a recording of the process:
Step by Step
Quit jAmaseis and log out
Log in using the Seismometer Admin[istrator] account.
Open a finder window, and browse to the data hard drive.
Open this, then open the data folder, then open Shared
You should see a file labelled jAmaseis1020_install.app.zip
Copy this to the desktop.
Double click to unzip the file.
Double click on the extracted application jAmaseis_install[.app]
You should be able to click through the various dialogues without changing anything, but double check the settings if you like -the application needs to be installed in the Applications folder on the system drive (this will normally be named nzseis-XXX).
Once finished, check that the “Prevent Appnap” setting is checked, and restart the computer.
This should eventually bring the jAmaseis application back in the Seismometer User account -the new version should be up and running!
In the video above, I check the “Prevent Appnap” settings -but it looks as though the upgrade does not affect this.
You need to log in as the Seismometer Admin user.
Make sure jAmaseis is not already running.
Download the software from http://www.iris.edu/hq/jamaseis/.
Double click to install, and use the defaults provided.
