Announcing a new DHI utility called ‘FetchResp’, version 1.0, now available for download from IRIS DMC. You can get to FetchResp through the Software and Manuals web page:


FetchResp is a program which will download response information from the IRIS Network Data Center. It is intended to be run as a script either from the command line using a terminal window or with cron using crontab.

FetchResp reads a file which specifies the networks, stations and or channels to be downloaded. You can indicate what dates are of interest. The default for FetchResp is the latest response information, but you can also download the first, last or all responses. See below for more information on command formats.
