Adding Triggers

Adding triggers to the DAQ involves a number of things. Follow the outline of steps below when adding a new trigger:

  1. Have a place in the trigger tables allocated for your trigger
  2. Have the daqdataformats library updated to reflect the allocation (TriggerDefines.h and TriggerDefines.cpp updated)
  3. Add your trigger to the Global Trigger configuration
  4. If your trigger is a DDT then make sure there is a handler in the GTData module that supports your trigger
  5. Add an entry in the TriggerScalars configuration file for your trigger
