Explanation

This page is generated every hour on the half hour by automatically conducting a search at each node, and may not reflect recent changes. The time and date that this page was last modified is at the top of the page.

  • Alive?
  • Node description
    • a concise explanation of the node and an overview of its document collection
    • links to further information and local search interfaces
    • see all node descriptions
    • Note: If the node produced errors then it will not be available for the advanced search.
  • Total records
    • the number of dataset descriptions currently available in this document collection. This is calculated by six different searches:
      1. A search for the word "title" in the XML documents. This should return the total number of records unless ANZMETA-1.3.dtd XML documents were not used for indexing.
      2. A search for the metadata date being after the year 1000.
      3. A search for the north bounding coordinate being less than or equal to 90 degrees.
      4. A search for the south bounding coordinate being greater than or equal to -90 degrees.
      5. A search for the east bounding coordinate being less than or equal to 180 degrees.
      6. A search for the west bounding coordinate being greater than or equal to -180 degrees.
      Each of these searches should return the total number of records from each node. If the number of results from each of these searches is different then that may indicate a problem with the metadata. If the responses from these searches are different then the results are shown in the advanced results text file. The greatest number of results is shown in the total records for each node.
  • Sample response time
    • the number of seconds taken to answer a simple query for the single word "title"
    • depends on network traffic and the capabilities, performance, and workload of computers, and also on the size of the result set
    • if the query takes longer than 60 seconds then there is a timeout and the node is recorded as being down
