COSMO (COS Monitoring)

Welcome! This is the documentation for COS Monitoring (COSMO). This document aims to give a high level overview of COSMO, including it’s monitors, the back end, and how it all ties together.

What is COSMO?

COSMO is a software package of monitors and interfaces for their data for the Cosmic Origins Spectrogragh (COS) at Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI). These monitors are important for ensuring that COS is operating nominally as well as extending its mission lifetime.

COSMO is built on monitorframe, a light-weight framework for creating instrument monitors (for more information about monitorframe, check out the documentation).

The remote repository for COSMO is hosted on GitHub and utilizes Travis CI for its automated testing needs. COSMO also tracks testing coverage with Codecov.
