CODA scripts

- github page
- Scripts locations:
  • daq@tedbbdaq
- ~/gem_scripts/setupCODA.bash
- ~/gem_scripts/coda_scripts/
  • sbs-onl@intelbbgem:
- ~/coda_scripts/

Frontend scripts to use on tedbbdaq

startCoda

  • executes each CODA component (platform, rcgui, PEB, all ROCs) in a separate xterm

restartStuff

  • kills and restarts the PEB and ROCs. The xterms are not killed with this script.

kcoda

  • kills all CODA components


Useful stand-alone programs

remex

$CODA_BIN/remex <remexHost> <function call>

  • Execute a function call on the specified remote Host
- Run without arguments for usage

tiLibTest

$CODA_VME/ti/test/tiLibTest <TI slot number>

  • Test triggering capabilities of the local TI.
- Puts the local TI in master mode (with no slaves).
- Accepts triggers either from Front Panel TSinputs or Internal Random Pulser

i2c_test

$LINUXVME/mpd/libsrc/test/i2c_test <mpd slot number>

  • Test the initialization and configuration of the APVs in the specified MPD.
- Does the same initialization that is done in mpd_list.c:rocDownload()
- Also attempts the readback of the APV registers with mpdApvStatus(0xffff)

vme_display

$CODA_VME_BIN/vme_display <VME Address> <read size in bytes>

  • Display the read value of specified size from the specified VME address.
- Run without arguments for usage

vme_modmem

$CODA_VME_BIN/vme_modmem <VME Address> <read/write size in bytes>

  • Modify the value of specified size of the specified VME address.
- Run without arguments for usage

MPD/SSP/APV Config files

  • Config files for configuration of APVs and MPD / SSP can be found in
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/


  • The SSP readout list (mpd5_ssp_list.so) uses
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/ssp_config.txt
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/ssp_apv_default.txt


  • The MPD readout list (mpd_list.so, mpd_slave_list.so) uses
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/mpd_config.txt
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/mpd_apv_default.txt


  • Both use common files to configure the MPDs/APVs given the MPD's slot number. For example, slot 5 MPD:
- sbs-onl@intelbbgem:~/bbgem-cfg/bbgem_crate_1/MPD_vmeSlot_5.cfg

Machines in use

atedf3

  • NFS server, tftp server for VME Controllers
  • CODA and hardware drivers in /data/disk2/SBS/
  • Read-only permissions for all machines in 36 subnet
  • Read-Write permissions for hallavme12pc,sbsvme25

tedbbdaq

  • DAQ Computer (RunControl, Event Building)
  • Mount atedf3:/data/disk2/SBS to /mnt/SBS
- Uses autofs. /etc/auto.SBS should be included in a line in /etc/auto.master
Restart procedure if not mounted after reboot
Option 1: (preferred)
- logout of coda
- login as root
cp /etc/auto.master_SBS /etc/auto.master
service puppet stop
service autofs restart
- login normally as coda
Option 2:
- logout of coda
- login as root
mount atedf3:/data/disk2/SBS /mnt/SBS
- login normally as coda
  • Softlinks in /home/coda/SBS-GEM-Cleanroom
  • coda/ CODA (3.10)
  • linuxvme (in CODA 3.10 directory)
  • data (filename format: gem_cleanroom_<run number>.evio.<split number>

intelbbgem

  • XVR16 VME Controller
  • 'sbs-onl' login
  • Slots ? : SSP
  • Slot 21: TI
  • LINUXVME (mpd,ssp): ~/linuxvme/
  • readout lists : ~/rol/

hatsv48

  • XVB601 VME Controller
  • 'daq' login
  • Slots 2-8, 10-16: MPDs
  • Slot 21: TI
  • Softlinks in /home/daq/SBS-GEM-Cleanroom

Updated/Cloned New repos in coda/3.10/linuxvme

github links (team:coda-user):

Added /site remote with (e.g. jvme, devel branch)

 cd jvme
 git remote add site /site/coda/contrib/devel/jvme
 git pull site devel

CODA environment setup script

Using BASH, source the environment setup script:

source ~/SBS-GEM-Cleanroom/env/setupCODA

Stuff to finish

Replace hallavme12pc

  • Install OS
  • Use same mount scripts used on hallavme12pc
  • Use local storage for data.

Add SSP crate

  • Figure out it's hostname
  • Get it to boot just like the other ROCs
  • Check TI
  • Check SSP
  • Check MPD (for checking/debugging APVs)
  • Tell Ben we're ready to start connecting fiber from MPD to SSP

Log CODA runs to logbooks/superbigbite

  • check out code used by Hall A's CODA 2.x
  • from Alex:
- epicsRunstart
- epicsRunEnd
- runstart.tcl
- runend.tcl

Add scripts and GEM-cleanroom specific configuration files to a remote git repo

- .bashrc
- setupCODA
- ~/bin/*
