Strategy option list

The following table lists all the options that can be set when implementing the options() function.

option type description
bands table List of integer (zero-indexed) band ids to process.
baselines string "auto", "cross" or "all" for selecting auto/cross-correlations or both.
baseline-integration string Average baselines together to a single dynamic spectrum, with a specified method. Allowed values are: "count", "average", "average-abs", "squared" or "stddev".
chunk-size integer When not zero, aoflagger will process the data in chunks with the given maximum chunk size.
column-name string What data column to use, e.g. "DATA", "CORRECTED_DATA". etc.
combine-spws boolean Whether to concatenate all spectral windows together while flagging.
execute-file string Name of file to load for this run, which should provide the execute-function. By default, it is assumed to be the currently loaded file (which also provides the options() call).
execute-function string Name of function to run (note this is a string, not a function). Default: "execute".
fields table List of integer (zero-indexed) field ids to process.
files table List of strings that are the names of the files to process.
min‑aoflagger-version string Minimum AOFlagger version required, of the form “major.minor”. Defaults to "3.0".
quiet boolean Inhibits all output except errors.
read-mode string "direct", "indirect", "memory" or "auto".
read-uvws boolean Whether to read the UVWs. This is not done by default.
script-version string Version of this strategy. Can have the form “major.minor[.subminor] [extra description]”, for example "2.4 beta" or "3.1.4 modified by André".
start-timestep /end-timestep integer Timestep (zero-indexed) from/at which to start/end processing.
threads integer Number of threads to use. The default is to use one thread per core.
verbose boolean Sets verbose logging.
