Mu2e otsdaq Extinction Monitor¶
This code is an extension of the OTS-DAQ project and requires it to function. To setup OTS-DAQ use the instructions listed here for installing the core OTS-DAQ packages. This must be done first! Once the OTSDAQ core dependencies are set up, the mu2e otsdaq Extinction Monitor interface code can be included.
If you are one of the project managers and plan on making modifications to the code, you can checkout the repository doing the following assuming you have valid kerberos credentials,
cd $MRB_SOURCE # this is the 'srcs' directory that will be set in the course of setting up OTS-DAQ mrb gitCheckout -d otsdaq_mu2e ssh://email@example.com/cvs/projects/mu2e-otsdaq mrb gitCheckout -d pcie_linux_kernel_module ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/cvs/projects/pcie_linux_kernel_module mrb gitCheckout -d otsdaq_mu2e_extmon ssh://email@example.com/cvs/projects/mu2e-otsdaq-extmon
Otherwise, you can just clone the directory using the http sever,
cd $MRB_SOURCE # this is the srcs directory that will be set in the course of setting up OTS-DAQ mrb gitCheckout -d otsdaq_mu2e_extmon http://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/mu2e-otsdaq-extmon
Alternatively, if you do not have mrb set up, you can check out the code using git directly,
git clone http://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/otsdaq_mu2e otsdaq_mu2e git clone http://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/pcie_linux_kernel_module pcie_linux_kernel_module #write access git clone ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/cvs/projects/mu2e-otsdaq-extmon otsdaq_mu2e_extmon #read only git clone http://cdcvs.fnal.gov/projects/mu2e-otsdaq-extmon otsdaq_mu2e_extmon
If you don't checkout using ssh, you will not be able to push your changes to redmine.
Once the package is checked out or if you are starting a new session, source the environment,
source /path/to/products/area/setup # e.g. /data/ups/setup cd my/mrb/working/directory # this is where localProducts_otsdaq_* and srcs resides setup mrb setup git source local*/setup source mrbSetEnv
Ideally, everything that is needed for a user to run OTSDAQ will be contained in the otsdaq_mu2e_extmon directory and the code in otsdaq, otsdaq_utilities, and otsdaq_components will not need to be touched. If there is a situation where you wish to modify part of the core code, it is advised to put in a request with one of the maintainers (Lorenzo, Ryan, or Eric).
Below is a summary of some of the parts that will need to be modified in order to set up communication with the experimental device.
The FEInterface class tells OTSDAQ how to communicate with front end electronics and is found in
otsdaq_mu2e_extmon/otsdaq-mu2e-extmon/FEInterfaces/. All of the methods defined in the interface source can be called from the OTSDAQ web interface...
