THIS IS THE OLD/DEPRECATED SBS SHIFT HOW-to PAGE!!!

To access the new wiki page, follow this link to the new how-to page

Overview

This page gives instructions for various aspects of the experiment relating to each of the major subsystems and shift tasks.

Shift Roles

  • Shift Leader: Executes the Run Plan according to the Run Coordinator's instructions
  • Target Operator: Monitors the target system
  • Data Quality Monitor: Starts and stops CODA DAQ runs and monitors the quality of the data that is being recorded

Reporting and Logging

All shift takers should regularly log shift details in HALOG - the Hall A electronic logbook.

Shift leaders should fill out Beam Time Accounting (BTA) information during the shift.

Taking Data

  • Using the CODA DAQ
    • GUI Description
    • Starting a Run
    • Stopping a Run
  • Monitoring the data
  • Online analysis
  • Shift checklist

Analyzing the Data

This section contains instructions for running the replay script with all detectors on a-onl@aonlX.

Instruction for shift crew

  • Login to a-onl@aonlX (X=1, 2, 3, 4)
  • once logged in, type gosbs => this takes you to the directory where the analysis should be done, and sets up the correct environment variables.
  • type ./run_gmn_50k.sh runnum with
    • runnum (integer) the run number you want to analyze;
  • This analyses the first 50000 events and produces plots that need to be checked.
  • Please review all produced plots of each GUI, and click on "Exit GUI", this will pop the next GUI.
  • After you're reviewed all plots, they will be saved as PDFs.
  • Instructions for full replay to be updated After a run is completed, you may run ./run_gmn_all runnum firstseg nseg with:
    • runnum having the same definition as above;
    • firstseg being the first segment to analyze;
    • nseg the number of segments to analyze.

Specific instructions for experts

Note: these instructions are likely to evolve in a very near future

  • Login to a-onl@aonlX (X=1, 2, 3, 4)
  • once logged in, type gosbs => this takes you to the directory where the analysis should be done, and sets up the correct environment variables.
  • open the analyzer by typing analyzer
  • once in the analyzer type .L replay_gmn.C+
  • type replay_gmn(runnum, nevents, firstevent, file_prefix, firstsplit, nsplits, pedestalmode) with:
    • runnum (integer) the run number you want to analyze;
    • nevents (long integer) the number of events you want to analyze.
    • firstevent (long integer) the event number from which you want to start the analysis;
    • file_prefix (char*)the prefix of the file you want to analyze;
    • firstsplit (integer) the split/segment number at which you want to start the analysis;
    • nsplits (integer) the number of splits/segments you want to analyze
    • pedestalmode (integer) turn pedestal mode on or off for the GEMs
