Migrating to artdaq v3_09_00

artdaq v3_09_00 adds a new plugin type "fragmentTypeHelper" to allow usage of the ArtdaqFragmentNamingService functionality outside of an art process. Updating a v3_08_00 FragmentNamingService is trivial, see artdaq-core-demo:source:artdaq-core-demo/Overlays/ArtdaqDemo_fragmentNameHelper.cc for an example.

You should then update your ArtdaqFragmentNamingServiceInterface configuration as follows: art.services.ArtdaqFragmentNamingServiceInterface: { service_provider: ArtdaqFragmentNamingService helper_plugin: YourExperiment }

Also, this version requires the configuration variable receive_requests: true to be added to all pull-mode BoardReaders.

Example Configurations (BEFORE DAQInterface bookkeeping)

BoardReader

  daq: {
  fragment_receiver: {

    # CommandableFragmentGenerator Configuration: 
    fragment_ids: []
    fragment_id: -99 # Please define only one of these

    sleep_on_stop_us: 0

     # Possible values are: Ignored, Single, Buffer, Window
    request_mode: "Ignored" 

    data_buffer_depth_fragments: 1000
    data_buffer_depth_mb: 1000

        receive_requests: true
    request_port: 3001
    request_address: "227.128.12.26" # Multicast request address

    # Request message contains tzero. Window will be from tzero -
    # offset to tzero + width

    request_window_offset: 0 
    request_window_width: 0

    # How long to wait before discarding request messages that are
        # outside the available data

    stale_request_timeout: "0xFFFFFFFF" 

    # If request windows are unique, avoids a copy operation, but
    # the same data point cannot be used for two requests. If this
    # is not anticipated, leave set to "true" 

    request_windows_are_unique: true 

    # separate_data_thread MUST be true for requests to be
        # applied! If requests are not desired, but a separate readout
        # thread is, set this to true and request_mode to ignored.

    separate_data_thread: false 

    # Whether a thread should be started which periodically calls
        # checkHWStatus_, a user-defined function which should be used
        # to check hardware status registers and report to MetricMan:

    separate_monitoring_thread: false 

    # How often, in microseconds, checkHWStatus_() should be
        # called. 0 to disable:
