(Things in *bold* definitely need to done every day.)

7 72 Kathy Romer
# *Send out an email to des-observers@fnal.gov* to say whether the 4pm meeting is happening or not (this may have already been decided at the previous 4pm meeting, but it is still worth sending out that email).
8 28 Thomas Diehl
# Perform Observer 1 and 2 End Of Night Checklists if the observers didn't do it (see their instructions).
9 19 Thomas Diehl
# Write the Synopsis_Night logbook entry if the observers didn't do it.
10 32 Kathy Romer
# Publish the nightsum in the morning if the observers didn't do it.
11 5 Thomas Diehl
# Complete CTIO end of night report if the observers didn't do it (if you had two operators, make sure both names appear). Check "the calendar":http://www.ctio.noao.edu/noao/calendar-node-field-nr-date to see the status of the night reports.
12 1 Marc testing Mengel
# Be aware of our observers arrival to and departure from the mountain. 
13 72 Kathy Romer
# *Prepare the nightly observing plan page*, including populating Almanac and Weather info (go to the Shifters page ("link for Y5":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/DESShiftsYr6) and scroll to - and then click on - today's date.) Top tip: populate the new page with the contents from the previous night, and then edit. That way you won't forget the info to include.
14 1 Marc testing Mengel
# Check the instrument status (read the logbook, talk to people)
15 1 Marc testing Mengel
# Check the DM status
16 17 Klaus Honscheid
# Check SISPI status 
17 61 Kathy Romer
# Check what scripts are needed/present for calibration
18 72 Kathy Romer
# Take a first look at the DESDM data quality "results table":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/DM_into_Database Anything unusual should be discussed at the 4pm meeting. Typically you won't accept the results until after the 4pm meeting.
19 72 Kathy Romer
# *Check diskspace*.  Log into one of the observer machines as user "sispi"  (password on white board) and execute the commands below. If any disks are filling up (>90% for observer2, >93% for the pipeline machines) send an email to Klaus and Ann (kh@physics.osu.edu and elliotta@mps.ohio-state.edu)
20 55 Kathy Romer
> added by Kathy R 10/17: I didn't have any success logging in using *su sispi* from observer3 but *ssh -X sispi@observer3* did work

h2. Late afternoon

28 22 Ann Elliot
# Before the 4pm meeting check with telops if SISPI instance and the GUIs were restarted. You could also do this by checking if they completed a "2 PM Checklist" in the eLog, or looking at the "Uptime" field in the Architect Console GUI.
29 31 Douglas Tucker
# Perform the "aTmCam afternoon check":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/ATmCamInfo
30 59 Kathy Romer
# Attend the "4pm meeting":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/4pm_meeting_ (this is usually chaired by someone at Fermilab, but occasionally you might have to do it)
31 1 Marc testing Mengel
# Edit the observing plan (go to the Shifters page ("link for Y5":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/DESShiftsYr6) and scroll to - and then click on - today's date.) Top tip: populate the new page with the contents from the previous night, and then edit. That way you won't forget the info to include. Differences in the plan do occur from night to night: these are usually discussed at the 4pm meeting.
32 71 Kathy Romer
# Check that telops have started the afternoon calibration flat fielding scripts (see below for an overview of what they have to do)
33 68 Kathy Romer
# Perform the Late Afternoon Checklist in the logbook. (link to logbook that only "works at CTIO":http://system1.ctio.noao.edu:8080/ECL/decam/E/index") See below, for some of the information that is asked for in the logbook:
34 68 Kathy Romer
# "check the SN processing status":https://desar2.cosmology.illinois.edu/DESFiles/desardata/QA/sn_status.html [for this you need a password that would be the first 3 letters of your Services username + docdbpw (the inaccurate info about how many CCDs) ]
35 68 Kathy Romer
# "Implement the data quality":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/desops/wiki/DM_into_Database (= "fill out the Survey Table") *If you didn't have a 4pm meeting, then you need to check with DESDM before doing the implementation if you think any of their true/false flags are erroneous.* (Note that it is OK to implement the data quality later in the evening/night if you didn't do it sooner--it won't mess up the data from that night.)
36 68 Kathy Romer
# Make sure observers are present and roles are defined/understood
