Quick start

This is intended to give a sketch of how to get the essentials for a shift up and running quickly.

After logging in, open a terminal and give the following commands:

setup ftbf
cd /home/nfs/ftbf_user/acnet

Multiple windows should appear. Open the following:

  • PPD Params (S60) - provides beamline parameters.
  • Swics (S39) - wire position setting/profile plotting.
    • (Click between the MC7WC1 and the <I> on 9 and 10, subtract background called bg2 then start plot.)

To start a run, open another terminal and type

ssh lariat-daq02 -l lariat
go [# OF SPILLS]

to start the run. Make a record of every new run in the logbook. Add DQM plots in a related entry for any substantial runs, or if interesting.

cd ~lariat/dqm
