3/2/2015 Notes

DocDB Event


Pengfei, Zukai, Jan, Leon, Andrew, Alec, Craig G., and Martin (taking notes)

Live Time and Trigger Speed

  • We are too slow.
  • After Yuri tests it, we can deploy Andrew's fix.
  • This will fix the memory increases.
  • However, we still need a plan to get more speed.
  • A simple solution would be to get the full farm.
  • Alec suggests that we put the Hough Tracker "abort" requirement into the energy trigger and write them out.
    • Leon believes that they must already be included in the energy trigger.
  • Andrew suggests that we need to redesign the Hough tracker and improve it.
  • Alec suggests that Denver might be able to do this.
  • Pengfei volunteered some of his time, but got vetoed by Andrew.
  • We will not be able to use the larger farm until the DAQAppMgr is patched.

SNEWS Update

  • Jan looked at the SNEWS data and found some corruption in a DCM, but this is only related to a known sync issue.
  • On the good side, we see that all 400 5 ms windows are properly written out.
