keyword=Re: DAQ problems (TS0)
The recent problem with CODA (halog 87852 and 87602) is the
following: TS0 does not make event output, so its output is specified
in the CODA database as "none". For some reason, this string suddenly
becomes "" (i.e. an empty string) and the TS0 software chokes on this.
All manner of reboots don't fix it. At the time it was happening I queried
the database and the string did report "none", so I can't understand why
TS0 sees "".
What "fixes" this is switching configurations. One can imagine toggling
between COINC and UNBUFF config. I realize this is very unsatisfying
and am thinking of a better solution. In the meantime, reconfigure. Also
it seems COINC is working fine, and I agree it is ok to run like that.
