Description

Engineers often expect DAQ systems to include tools for interacting with the front-end and DAQ hardware and firmware. (To be contrasted with the primary DAQ function of reading out the data.)

We should investigate how to include this in artdaq.

History

#1 Updated by Eric Flumerfelt over 2 years ago

As of artdaq v1_13_03, the CommandableFragmentGenerator class has an optional thread which periodically calls a user-defined method that collects hardware status information. This functionality can be used to automatically stop readout if a fault condition is detected.

  • Tracker changed from Idea to Feature

I'm upgrading this to a "Feature", and it should cover the work needed to move MacroMaker out of otsdaq and into artdaq/artdaq_utilities.
