NOvA Trigger - MINOS Spill

Once activated, this script will wait for a NuMI Spill trigger to be issued to our DAQ. It will then attempt to access the MINOS database to read out the latest NuMI spill time recorded by MINOS, and calculate the difference of the two.

Getting ready to run the script

Note: You will likely already have a terminal setup to do this, the one you run startRunControl.sh and stopRunControl.sh from, for example. If not, follow the steps below to get to this point.
  1. Log into novadaq-ctrl-trigger:
  2. Set up the NOVA-DAQ Environment:
    • source DAQOperationsTools/novadaq_setup.sh
      • or use alias setup_online

Running the script

  • The name of the script is watchSpillsNOvAVsTheWorld.sh
