List of SBN online systems and components

SBN-ND (SBND) detector hall

Note the network setup at SBN-ND is temporary, until the production equipment arrives and installation commences in ~ April 202

Central Server

  • sbnd-gateway01, sbnd-gateway02 : path into the SBND online computing cluster and for general purpose work
  • sbnd-nfs01, sbnd-nfs02 : file server for SBND online cluster and hot backup
  • sbnd-db01, sbnd-db02 : databases server for SBND and hot backup
  • sbnd-tpc01 ... sbnd-tpc12 : TPC readout servers, have readout PCIe cards installed

More to come!!!

SBN-FD (ICARUS) detector hall

The network is divided into three segments - Fermilab, DAQ, and DCS/management.
  • Fermi - - SBN-FD-Public
  • DAQ - - SBN-FD-DAQ-Private - Vlan 2048
  • DCS - - SBN-FD-DCS-Private - Vlan 2041

Only two icarus servers at the SBN-FD building are accessible directly from the Fermilab public network - icarus-gateway01 and icarus-gateway02. You must login to one of these two computers to access the other computers on the SBN-FD network.

Central Servers

  • icarus-gateway01, icarus-gateway02 : Path into the ICARUS online computing cluster
    • icarus-gateway01-dcs
    • icarus-gateway02-dcs
  • icarus-db01 : main ICARUS online database
    • icarus-db01-daq
  • icarus-db02 : backup ICARUS online database
    • icarus-db02-daq
  • icarus-nfs01 : backup ICARUS general purpose file server
  • icarus-nfs02 : main ICARUS general purpose file server

Naming convention

All computer servers have a Fermilab network connection ( with dns name icarus-xxxyy.
The systems are divided by functionality. The values of xxx so far are.
  • evb - event builder
  • tpc - TPC readout, A3818 cards installed
  • pmt - PMT readout, A3818 cards installed
  • crt - CRT readout
  • clk - Timing readout
  • dcs - detector control system
  • pdu - power distribution units
  • ipmi - connections to management ports on the computer servers


  • icarus-crt02
