Results of integration with prototype RCE system Oct 2014

Ryan Herbst, Matt Graham, Giles Barr, John Freeman, Kurt Biery, Tim Nicholls

System configuration

ATCA shelf with 1 COB, containing 4xDPMs (8RCEs) and 1xDTM installed. Set up on DAQ internal network with hostnames lbnedpm0-8, lbnedpm0, lbnecob-sm (shelf manager).
RCEs mount /data/lbnedaq/cob_nfs from lbne35t-gateway01

Test operation

Built, configured and ran lbne-artdaq system in /data/lbnedaq/rce ran with 2xRCEs (DPM0,1) in 2x2x2 mode on lbnedaq3

Default configuration for RCEs loaded by rceServer from file /data/lbnedaq/cob_nfs/35ton/config/defaults.xml

RCE data transfer firmware/software set up to generate 3xmicroslices per second. BoardReader configured to create 1 millislice per 3 microslices, i.e. 1Hz of fragments.

Wrote data file in this mode, stored on system as /data/lbnedaq/data/lbne_r001000_sr01_20141003T134235.root

Also ran under DAQInterface / runControl prototype with guidance from John F, following instructions on wiki at: https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/lbne-daq/wiki/Running_DAQ_Interface

Created DAQInterface configuration file at /data/lbnedaq/scratch/DAQInterface/lbnerc/docs/config_lbnedaq3_2RCE.txt:
