Failing Run Control¶
If the Runn Control fails, call Jon Paley right away. When he requests, go through the following steps:
- Open a terminal on the NOVA-DAQ-1, and start the Run Control.
[novadaq@novadaq-ctrl-master ~]$ startRunControl.sh
- Look for the process rcWindow and copy its process id.
[novadaq@novadaq-ctrl-master ~]$ ps PID TTY TIME CMD 3428 pts/1 00:03:25 ssh 3634 pts/1 00:00:04 python 3635 pts/1 00:00:00 ssh 3636 pts/1 00:00:00 python 3645 pts/1 00:00:00 ssh 3646 pts/1 00:00:00 ssh 7910 pts/1 00:01:38 msgviewer 7912 pts/1 00:00:00 rsrcWindow 7914 pts/1 00:04:22 rcWindow 13238 pts/1 00:00:00 ps 23739 pts/1 00:00:00 bash
- Open a new terminal window. Attach the debugger to the rcWindow process by refering its process id.
[novadaq@novadaq-ctrl-master ~]$ gdb -p 7914
Jon Paley will probably tell you what to do next over the phone.
