What is the update schedule for the metadata in the VLO?

Submitted by Twan Goosen on

The metadata harvester runs with different configurations at different starting times:

  • Monday and Thursday 20:00 CET/CEST: harvesting of CLARIN providers
  • Friday 20:00 CET/CEST: harvesting of non-CLARIN providers

The  importer for the production VLO runs after every completed harvest (importing all current metadata, both CLARIN and non-CLARIN). 

Combined, harvester/import runs typically take about 12-20 hours to complete, depending primarily on the response rate of the metadata providers.

Because of this schedule, it can take a couple of days before provided metadata becomes available in the VLO. If it takes longer than that, please send a message to vlw [at] (vlw[at]clarin[dot]eu).

Be aware that the harvester and VLO schedule may be subject to change in the future!
