Left and the Right DAQ are completly independent of each other.

The Left DAQ setting takes data for the LHRS and the DVCS calorimeter. For the Left DAQ, the data needs to be taken with (regular) LEFT DAQ prescale 9 only. To switch between different type of triggers in the LEFT HRS or on the DVCS calorimeter, one needs to modify prescale on the DVCS trigger module.

==How to run DAQ on LEFT HRS (which is also the DVCS one)==
       From a terminal login as "adaq" on adaq1 machine (do "ssh adaq@adaq1" without the quotes)
       Password is available on the white board
       After login to adaq1, type "startcoda" to bring up the runcontrol GUI
       The default configuration is "DVCS", if it is not loaded you can choose it from the menu "configurations->Cool", select "DVCS"
       Click "Platform->connect"
       Click on "Configure" button
       Click on "Download" button
       Click on "PreStart" button
       Click on "Start" button, and acknowledge "start-of-run" pop-up window
       To end a run click on "End" button 

When starting coda (startcoda command), the DVCS rocs should open automatically, but if not you can try to issue a "dvcsrocs".

How to run DAQ on RIGHT HRS (only for GMP)

       From a terminal login as "adaq" on adaq2 machine (do "ssh adaq@adaq2" without the quotes)
       Password is available on the white board
       After login to adaq2, type "startcoda" to bring up the runcontrol GUI
       The default configuration is "RHRSnoBuff", if it is not loaded you can choose it from the menu "configurations->Cool", select "RHRSnoBuff"
       Click "Platform->connect"
       Click on "Configure" button
       Click on "Download" button
       Click on "PreStart" button
       Click on "Start" button, and acknowledge "start-of-run" pop-up window
       To end a run click on "End" button 


   How to kill coda processes
       At the terminal of adaq1 (for LHRS) or adaq2 (for RHRS), type "kcoda". You may also try a "killdvcsrocs".
