Expert - Configure Argo

Argo Live uses a statically-running binary to get data from the dispatcher and create files that are read by the web browser. Normally, this process is started automatically (whenever anyone goes to [[http://ubdaq-prod-near2.fnal.gov/Argo/live]]) and runs in full-featured mode.

For the purposes of the laser, you can put argo-live-backend into a 'fast' mode, where it does not compose the full color map data, but only looks for hits.

Before you begin, go to this link:
http://ubdaq-prod-near2.fnal.gov/Argo/server/restart_live.cgi?fast=1

When you’re finished:
http://ubdaq-prod-near2.fnal.gov/Argo/server/restart_live.cgi?fast=0

These links kill the backend process, and symlink in the correct settings file. You then need to go to [[http://ubdaq-prod-near2.fnal.gov/Argo/live]] to actually goose the server into starting to assemble events.
