Validation
==========
The result file is sent back to the server over https (using the
file_upload_handler) cgi. The "validator" looks at the returned files and
verifies that they are correct. Our validator code is at
https://setisvn.ssl.berkeley.edu/svn/seti_boinc/validate/. The process to
put valid results file into a database is called the "assimilator". We
use separate table for each signal type in an informix database. The
assimilation function is in
https://setisvn.ssl.berkeley.edu/svn/seti_boinc/assimilator/ and it calls
database code in https://setisvn.ssl.berkeley.edu/svn/seti_boinc/db/ .
Both the validation and assimilation routines get linked with BOINC code.
Once the file has been assimilated, it is marked as ready for deletion by
the file_deleter, which is a standard part of BOINC.
The assimilator and validators are separate processes that are typically
stated by the boinc "start" script, that read the info in your "config.xml"
file. If you need examples of that I can provide it.
