Jobs of the WAC

Prompt the new runs

Run prompt on all the runs taken since the last wac summary. Do a reprompt if there is any doubt about the initial offline analysis. Look carefully through the output and try to spot problems. For example, Ahmed noticed large outliers in the bcm double differences and this helped us to learn that the dac glitch on the 18 bit ADCs was causing problems.

Update the run database

For every run the database of runs must be updated. The database structure is as follows.

+-------------------+------------+------+-----+-------------------+----------------+ | Field | Type | Null | Key | Default | Extra | +-------------------+------------+------+-----+-------------------+----------------+ | WACentriesID | int(11) | | PRI | NULL | auto_increment | | RunInfo_RunNumber | int(11) | YES | MUL | NULL | | | WACname | tinytext | YES | | NULL | | | WACEntryTime | timestamp | YES | | CURRENT_TIMESTAMP | | | WACcomment | longtext | YES | | NULL | | | LeftDETeventLo | int(11) | YES | | NULL | | | LeftDETeventHi | int(11) | YES | | NULL | | | RightDETeventLo | int(11) | YES | | NULL | | | RightDETeventHi | int(11) | YES | | NULL | | | Slug | int(11) | YES | | NULL | | | SlowSign | tinyint(2) | YES | | NULL | | | Production | tinyint(4) | YES | | NULL | | +-------------------+------------+------+-----+-------------------+----------------+

The database can be interacted with using the addWACentry.pl script in the wac directory.
