Minos Beam Data processing

This "Beam Data" is a bit more general than simply that of the batch group efforts, but lives here for historical reasons as well as a lack of an obvious alternative.

The topics to be discussed here include:

  • acquisition of the data from ACNet into MINOS .mbeam.root format files
  • replacement of direct XMLRPC calls to ACNet with access to the new IFBeamData DB ** comparison of data from minos root file and from IF database
  • processing said .mbeam.root files into MINOS DB BeamMonSpill table entries
  • fixing or repopulating BeamMonSpill when there are incomplete .mbeam.root files
  • verifying that the MINOS DB is up-to-date before batch processing of files proceeds
  • reworking Jas online beam monitoring in the MINOS+ era
  • this is not a batch task, but is only put here because the effort shares many of the same concerns with the .mbeam.root upgrade task
