Description

I see lots of messages like the following in the artdaq process logs in an artdaq-v3_5_0-based system at protoDUNE:

Back from xmlrpc_string_new_lp
wrapper constructed
value_string constructor exiting
value_string constructor entered
Going to call xmlrpc_string_new_lp
length = 6, value = Booted

I suspect that these messages are going into the PMT log in artdaq-demo systems.

Can we disable these somehow?
Thanks,
Kurt

History

#1 Updated by Eric Flumerfelt about 1 month ago

This is caused by xmlrpc_c inexplicably leaving debug print statements in a so-called "stable" release. We have a few options:
  1. Go back to a previous version of xmlrpc_c, making sure that it compiles with e19 and c7
  2. Move to a newer version of xmlrpc_c, assuming that the problem has been fixed
  3. Patch the current version to make sure these printouts are removed

#2 Updated by Eric Flumerfelt about 1 month ago

I have found the problem in the build-framework-xmlrpc-c-ssi-build repository: there were two patch files for this issue, but only one was being applied. Since this is already a distributed product, the best way forward is probably to add an a to the version and make a new set of tarballs. The next artdaq release would then use that version of xmlrpc_c.
