Ask a control room expert or the Run Coordinator to add your Kerberos principal to the .k5login files for the uboonedaq and ubooneshift users on uboone-cr-01, uboone-cr-02, uboone-cr-03, and uboone-cr04.
Changes in shift procedure and important notices for shifters are listed by date in the Operations Wiki Updates page. Please review this list at the beginning of every shift and contact the relevant subsystem expert or Run Coordinator if you are not clear on new procedures.
Be sure to reread parts of the Operations Wiki that have been updated (or are new) since the last shift you took. The Operations Wiki Updates page should make it very simple to determine which material should be reviewed.
If your last shift was before October 14th, 2015 (the date the Operations Wiki Update page was created), please read the entire Operations Wiki. Ideally this should be done before the beginning of your shift.
Execute the noisy channel analysis script (see Getting the list of noisy channels) and post the list of very noisy and very quiet channels to the E-log under topic "Shift".
Look at the Online Monitor plots for the run you just took. See the prototype checklist here: OM - Checklist
Monitor the slow control display. Check for alarming or tripping Wiener power supplies (see here for instructions). Call the DAQ expert on call if this happens. Monitor the pressure in the cryostat. There is a saved plot "filling.plt". If you see the pressure rise to 15 psig and no corresponding e-log entry from the cryogenics team that they are working on the issue immediately page the cryo on-call expert (630-255-1324) and call the run coordinator. If you do not receive a response within 10 min, call cryogenics experts directly. Check the slow control for recent alarms (see instructions).
Monitor the data processing, a.k.a. PUBS. Make sure PUBS is running and that the computers on which PUBS is running are not overloaded. See the specific instructions at DM - Shifters.
Please promptly update the Run Information Document (a Google Doc) with noise/pulser run information as the runs are taken during shift: [[https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1aVGAZrCYizhmduY4pqx5k29pVjyPRO7ydBJj95i0XfA/edit#gid=0]] This document includes ASIC configuration settings as well as information about activity at LArTF during the collection of data. Please continue to update this document during the commissioning process as it will be very helpful in helping us diagnose noise-related concerns. Please update this document during your shift and copy your updates into an E-log entry at the end of your shift.
Also note that noting operations-related items in the Run Information Document or making a note in the shifter Google chat window is not a replacement for an E-log entry. Any operations-related items of interest must be noted in the E-log, both promptly and with specific information (such as which alarms went into a bad state).
Shifters need to notify Run Coordinator when experts are going to work in LArTF and also when the shifters are asked to help the experts in LArTF. Shifters must also fill out an E-log entry using the Start of Detector Access form, and fill out the End of Detector Access form when the work is complete.
SLC - Shifters: SHIFTER INSTRUCTIONS (Shifters are strongly instructed to ONLY follow instructions in this link. Ignore any other instructions you might see in the slow monitoring tabs below, you are welcome to read them for informative purposes ONLY!)
Example - Experts Only: This is where the "Expert Documentation" should live, but only for the time being, we will want to move this behind a password wall. For the time being please start to build the documentation here now but be mindful that it is public viewable.
