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 1 and the <I> on 9 and 10, subtract background *bg2 then start plot.)

To start a run, open another terminal and type:

  • ssh lariat-daq02 -l lariat
Then, just type
  • go [# OF SPILLS]

to start the run. Make a record of every new run in the logbook.

Event Viewer:
Open another terminal and type

  • ssh -Y
  • source ~johnnyho/setup_dqm
  • cd ~lariat/dqm
  • python /lariat/data/users/lariatdqm/dqm/dqm_run_[RUN]_spill_[SPILL].root

to view events. (include leading zeroes; [RUN] should be 6 digits, and [SPILL] should be 4.)
