Config file parameters

The config file has multiple different sections. Each section will be separated into a different page, linked below (to keep this page from being a million lines long!). Click through to the pages to see explanations of what each parameter means, and example values of the parameters (all copied from config 681, PHYSICS_BNB_NUMI_MUCS_EXT6990mHz_SWTrigger_2Stream_LowThreshold50_c2.fcl).

Sections of the config file:

  • ASIC -- Set ASIC parameters (including whether to reconfigure). Note that the ASICs should be reconfigured when the power is turned on).
  • Flasher, Pulser, Strobe1, and Strobe2 -- (What are these?)
  • assemblerAppevb -- parameters governing the assembler on the EVB (the process that collects data from the SEBs and writes it to disk on the EVB), including the software trigger are defined here
  • dispatcherevb -- (What does this do?)
  • online_monitornear1 -- parameters governing the online monitor (including the boundaries for triggering alarms on the resistive wall monitors)
  • sebApp (for SEBs 1-9) -- parameters governing sebApp, the process that collects data and sends it to the event builder, for SEBs 1-9, the SEBs attached to the nine TPC crates (one instance runs on each SEB)
  • sebApp (for SEB 10) -- parameters governing sebApp, the process that collects data and sends it to the event builder, for SEB 10, the SEB attached to the PMT+trigger crate (includes trigger stream).
