Instructions for Shifters¶
This page contains information for people taking 35t shifts. See general information on shift taking before arriving at FNAL (including prerequisites such as possessing a valid Fermi ID) on this page: Shift Information.
Log into machines in ROC West¶
The DUNE 35t machines are located by the windows in ROC West, on the 1st floor of Wilson Hall. There are two stations, each with a keyboard, mouse and four monitors (by now, only one station is on).
Log into the computers using the username dune. It will ask for your password and then principal (in this order); use your standard personal Kerberos principal and password to log in. This will require your credentials be in the .k5login file on the machine; this should be the case (it will be the responsibility of the Deputy Run Coordinator to ensure it is) but if you have problems let the DRC know (see DRC (deputy run coordinator) schedule).
If there is always someone logged in to the machine first log them out before using your Kerberos credentials to log in.
If dune is already logged in, execute the kdestroy command to delete their kerberos credentials and then a kinit -f to load yours.
Log into the ECL¶
In New Entry you will find the forms: Start of Shift, Shift Summary, Start of Run, End of Run Summary, etc.
Taking DAQ data¶
Before taking data, be sure that no one else is already using the DAQ. Check the ECL and enter a note in New Entry.
Log into the machine where the code is:
ssh -l lbnedaq lbne35t-gateway01.fnal.gov
This will also require your credentials to be in the .k5login file on the machine (ask the Deputy Run Coordinator to provide this).
For instructions on running the DAQ:
For instructions on how to use the just_do_it.sh code:
This page provides instructions for how to take TPC data, specifically pedestal runs.
The average shifter will hopefully not have to concern themselves with this, but if so the subsequent pages will detail the relevant cabling.
This page describes the major run modes of the DAQ and their configuration fHiCL documents with important parameters. Shifters will not usually have to edit these parameters directly.
