ESDIS Weekly Metrics: August 12, 2021

EOSDIS Science Data Metrics

Line graph showing new EOSDIS data as of August 12, 2021.


1. The volume distributed to end users per day, as a running average over the last 4 weeks, is ~4.1 times the volume added to the archive per day.

LANCE Data Latency

Line graph showing LANCE data latency as of 12 August 2021


  1. Higher product latencies for
    1. VIIRS-Suomi NPP on 05 August 2021 are due to the recovery of Suomi NPP from being in safe mode.
    2. OMPS-Suomi NPP on 04 August 2021 and 05 August 2021 are due to OMPS-Suomi NPP going into safe mode.


Line graph showing cumulative LANCE latency


  1. Latency for a data granule is defined as the time taken from the midpoint between the start and end of acquisition of the data for that granule to the granule’s being ready on-line for users to download.
  2. Duration covered by the data for a granule is defined differently for different instruments (e.g., MODIS granules are 5 minutes long while OMI NRT granules are 13 to 136 minutes long).
  3. Over the last four weeks, over 95% of NRT data requests for all instruments except for three instruments (MODIS-AQUA, OMPS-Suomi NPP and VIIRS-Suomi NPP (Land)) were satisfied within 3 hours. For MODIS-AQUA, OMPS-Suomi NPP and VIIRS-Suomi NPP (Land) over 94%, 90% and 70% of the NRT data requests were satisfied within 3 hours, respectively.
