h1. Welcome to the SBND VST Wiki
22 33 Gustavo Valdiviesso
23 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
This is the wiki for the SBND's Vertical Slice Test (VST). This is an integration of the cold and warm electronics with DAQ and online monitoring using LArIAT's cryostat and TPC.

29 49 Gustavo Valdiviesso
30 49 Gustavo Valdiviesso
*  Take beam data with these configurations: Energy = 64GeV, Intensity = 7E8, MC7 Magnet = 100 amps
31 49 Gustavo Valdiviesso
*  Take 2h runs, which has to be done by hand. Shifter has to stop the SBND DAQ (ctrl+C) and launch the script again every two hours. First run of the plan is #40, which started Jun 29 18:05:25 CDT
32 53 Gustavo Valdiviesso
*  When the new run starts, the Online monitor show reliable information for the noise correlation matrix and the wires rms. Save a snapshot of

*Gaining Access*
57 33 Gustavo Valdiviesso
58 39 Gustavo Valdiviesso
* First, set up your Fermilab computing account and Kerberos. This can be done by following instructions "here":https://redmine.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/lardbt/wiki/Fermilab_Computing_Access. Check that you can issue a Kerberos ticket with 
59 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
60 39 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre> kinit <yourKerberosPrincipal>@FNAL.GOV</pre> 
61 39 Gustavo Valdiviesso
62 39 Gustavo Valdiviesso
and confirm that you have gotten a kerberos ticket by checking the output of the command @klist@.
63 39 Gustavo Valdiviesso
64 33 Gustavo Valdiviesso
* If you are at Fermilab:
65 33 Gustavo Valdiviesso
** Check that you are connected via ethernet, or to the Fermilab @fgz@ Wi-Fi network and not the guest Wi-Fi network. This is required to access the lariat shift machines. The latter may lead to "Connection reset by peer" errors, refusing you access. Register your device to the fgz network "here":https://fermi.service-now.com/kb_view_customer.do?sysparm_article=KB0011206. 
66 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
** If you find you cannot SSH into lariat-cr-02.fnal.gov, make sure your SSH config file allows X11 forwarding and all GSSAPI options. Further details can be found "here":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/lardbt/wiki/Fermilab_Computing_Access#Logging-into-Fermilab-Computers-with-Kerberos.

** %{color:red} The Java dependent Cisco AnyConnect client can no longer run from a browser due to the lack of support for NPAPI%. This means that the old VPN method (https://vpn.fnal.gov) only works in old browsers. Use this as an alternative method, which is browser-independent:
70 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
71 56 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Uninstall Cisco AnyConnect (skip this if you are sure you don't have it):
72 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
73 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
74 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
sudo /opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpn_uninstall.sh
75 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
76 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
77 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
78 56 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Install  openconnect (it is an open source vpn client)
79 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
80 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
if you are using ubuntu...
81 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso
82 54 Gustavo Valdiviesso

95 19 Gustavo Valdiviesso
96 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
Contact the current shifter in the hangouts group to tell him/her that you are getting ready. This will give the current shifter time to fill in his  End Of Run report. Ask about the current plan and status (the shifter might ask you to read some e-log entries). 
97 19 Gustavo Valdiviesso
98 19 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Don't log into the hangouts yourself just yet. Wait until the current shifter tells you that he/she is ready to give you the controls.

120 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
sudo openconnect https://vpn.fnal.gov
121 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
122 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
123 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
and it is going to ask for your Username and Password (your SERVICES password).
124 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
125 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
If it works, you will be greeted with this message:
126 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso

151 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
152 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Again, leave this terminal open. If this fails, ask one of the following collaborators (stjohn@fnal.gov or badgett@fnal.gov) to add you to the ~lariat/.k5login list, which will grant you SSH access.
153 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
154 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
* *VNC* - Finally opening the VNC. You may use a client of you choice. When it asks for a server, use *localhost:5900* which is our tunnel. The password is the same as the *lariat-doc-db* password (*%{color:red}NOT SBND's%*).
155 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
156 57 Gustavo Valdiviesso
157 35 Gustavo Valdiviesso
** *Please do not interfere with the shifter by VNC!*  Contact the shifter on Google Hangouts to confirm a convenient time before you test your VNC.  
158 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
* *Google Hangouts* from Chrome browser (phone function does not work in Firefox)
159 36 Gustavo Valdiviesso
** Try to make a free phone call to a US number using the hangouts dialer (may require installing Google Talk plugin first time)
160 35 Gustavo Valdiviesso
** This is how the Main Control Room will phone you (it will ring when they dial +1 331-442-4353) and it is how you should phone them.

* SBND DAQ and DQM: https://redmine.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sbnddaq/wiki/Starting_DAQ_Software
216 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
217 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
If for any reason you have to access those yourself (sometimes it happens when the previous Kerberos ticket expires), here is how:
218 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
219 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
** With the tunnel open, log in to the lariat-gateway with the sbnd user:
220 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
221 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
222 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
kinit <youruser>@FNAL.GOV
223 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
ssh -X -Y sbnd@lariat-gateway.fnal.gov
224 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
225 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
226 67 William Badgett
once you are in the gateway, access lariat-daq00 if you want to launch the LArIAT DAQ, or lariat-daq04 for the SBND DAQ (you want both, so repeat this procedure twice).
227 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
228 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
229 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
kinit <youruser>@FNAL.GOV
230 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
ssh -X -Y sbnd@lariat-daq04.fnal.gov
231 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
232 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
233 67 William Badgett
again, substitute daq04 for daq00 if you want to launch the LArIAT DAQ.
234 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
235 67 William Badgett
In the DAQ00 window, execute the LArIAT script:
236 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
237 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
238 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
go
239 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
240 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
241 67 William Badgett
Do *not* specify any arguments.
242 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
243 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
In the daq04 machine, excecute the SBND script:
244 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
245 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
246 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
startDAQInterface
247 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
248 59 Gustavo Valdiviesso
249 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
You also need the SBND DQM website (which can only see this via Fermilab VPN or locally through the fgz network): https://sbn-online.fnal.gov/cgi-bin/minargon/minargon.wsgi
250 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
If you are in a remote shift, you can open another terminal and make use of the tunnel. Launch your favorite browser from the terminal, for instance
251 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
252 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
253 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
google-chrome
254 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
255 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
256 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
and it will be able to access the DQM site.
257 60 Gustavo Valdiviesso
258 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
259 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
260 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Keep checking the Synoptics alarms and the DQM website. The DQM has several plots that should be updating every few minutes. If you see any of the time stamps getting too old, you may need to restart it (instructions above). Instructions on how the DQM works are in its first page.

*%{color:red}Some Troubleshooting%*
264 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
265 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
If the SBND DAQ won't start, there are two steps to follow, in this order:
266 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
267 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Step 1. Try again: sometimes it just need some persistence.
268 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
269 62 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Step 2. Other times, it might need some clean up. Try running this script:
270 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
271 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
272 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
kill_ipcs
273 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre>
274 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
275 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
and go back to Step 1.
276 61 Gustavo Valdiviesso
277 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
Another problem is data corruption. You will see the RMS of the Wires going through the roof. If that happens, try this one first without turning off the daq.
278 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
279 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
<pre>
280 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
source start_bnl_ld.sh
281 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
python WIB_nevis_sync.py
282 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
</pre> 
283 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
284 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
After about 3 minutes, you should see the rms going back to normal. If not, then follow this recipe:
285 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
286 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso
stop the daq (ctrl+C only once)
287 63 Gustavo Valdiviesso

h2. How to change the DAQ configuration to calibration mode
316 65 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
317 64 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
At lariat-daq04.fnal.gov, open the file /home/nfs/sbnd/SBND_DAQ2/bin/start_daq_interface.sh and comment the line
318 64 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> CONFIG=NevisTPCXMIT30 # External triggers 
319 64 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
and uncomment the line
320 64 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> #CONFIG=NevisTPCCalib # Internal calibration triggers
321 64 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
Then you can start a new run following the usual procedure. This will run the DAQ using internal triggers and a calibration pulse will be sent to the Magic Blue Box for each trigger.

If you want to run the DAQ in calibration mode, follow the instructions there)

1. Make sure the Nevis crate and NIM bin are powered. Experts: (on-site) Davio Cianci, (off-site) José I. Crespo (Skype: josei.ca)
330 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
2. ssh into the DAQ machine
331 4 William Badgett
Log into the SBND gateway (or you can create an FNAL VPN connection and skip sbnd-daq00, not needed on FNAL site)
332 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> ssh -Y sbnd-daq00.fnal.gov
333 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
Log into the LArIAT gateway
334 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> ssh -Y lariat-gateway01.fnal.gov
335 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
Log into the DAQ server using the common sbnd account (reserved for DAQ) 
336 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> ssh -Y sbnd@lariat-daq04
337 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
3. Go to the jcrespo/ directory
338 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> cd jcrespo
339 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
Run the DAQ-decoder-plotter script
340 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> ./run_and_plot_sbnddaq.sh
341 1 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
and follow the instructions printed on screen. This script runs the DAQ in calibration mode (CALIB pulses are sent to the Magic Blue Box every 1 s) -- once you have collected the desired number of events, it requires you to stop the DAQ using CTRL + C twice --, then runs the binary decoder, and finally runs a ROOT analysis to plot the waveforms.

The data is saved in the directory /home/nfs/sbnd/jcrespo/runs
344 5 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
The script makes a new directory for each run named RunYearMonthDayHourMinutesSecond (e.g. Run20180620113511).
345 5 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
The raw binary data is the file named output_NevisTPCCALIB_generator.dat. For a hexdump, you can use
346 5 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
> hexdump -v -e '8/2 "%04X ""\n"' output_NevisTPCCALIB_generator.dat | less
347 5 Jose Ignacio Crespo Anadon
(it will display the data in 8 columns with 2 bytes each). The ADC data is encoded in the lower 12 bits (3 last hex characters) of the words beginning with "0".

h2. How to Access Files
355 68 Dominic Barker
356 68 Dominic Barker
All files created for the VST test are initially created on lariat daq01 and daq04. They are despoiled in /daqdata and are quickly moved to /daqdat/dropbox where they last for ~2 days until they are moved to SAM. Files beginning with sbnd are the raw data non-decoded files. Files beginning with digits_sbnd are larsoft friendly files. These have been decoded and raw:digits objects have been created. Files beginning with lariat for the corresponding runs contain the beam-line detector information.    
357 68 Dominic Barker
358 68 Dominic Barker
Raw Data files starting with sbnd from runs prior to Thursday 13th July are now temporarily being stored in /pnfs/sbnd/persistent/users/VST/sbnd_files. You can access these from the SBND GPVM. Gray is putting the digits on pnfs as well. Soon there will be the corresponding digits file as well.  
359 68 Dominic Barker
360 68 Dominic Barker
All Other files can be found on SAM. All the files come under the lariat experiment name so make sure there is a "-e lariat" in the commands you write.  To Quickly access the files here is a set of instructions: 
361 68 Dominic Barker
362 68 Dominic Barker
Setup the required stuff. 
363 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>
364 68 Dominic Barker
source /grid/fermiapp/products/setups.sh; 
365 68 Dominic Barker
setup ifdhc; 
366 68 Dominic Barker
setup sam_web_client; 
367 68 Dominic Barker
setup fife_utils; 
368 68 Dominic Barker
</pre>
369 68 Dominic Barker
370 68 Dominic Barker
To Look at the files available you can use some of the "SAM commands":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sam-main/wiki/Sam_web_client_Command_Reference. Here is a few examples:   
371 68 Dominic Barker
372 68 Dominic Barker
To see a list of files from after a date: 
373 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb -e lariat list-files "start_time > 02-Jul-2018" </pre>
374 68 Dominic Barker
375 68 Dominic Barker
To see all the files which have  sbnd: 
376 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb -e lariat list-files "file_name like sbnd_r%.root" </pre>
377 68 Dominic Barker
378 68 Dominic Barker
To use metadata. 
379 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb list-files -e lariat "MetaDataName = value"</pre>
380 68 Dominic Barker
381 68 Dominic Barker
Use And to do two or more filters :
382 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb -e lariat list-files "start_time > 02-Jul-2018" AND file_name like sbnd_r%.root </pre>
383 68 Dominic Barker
384 68 Dominic Barker
You can look at the MetaData in the files by running: 
385 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb -e lariat get-metadata file.root</pre>
386 68 Dominic Barker
387 68 Dominic Barker
You can locate the file on enstore: 
388 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>samweb -e lariat locate-file file.root </pre> 
389 68 Dominic Barker
390 68 Dominic Barker
To use the files you have to stage them and copy them into your directory. This "can be done":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/sbndcode/wiki/_How_to_create_and_use_a_SAM_definition using "project.py":https://cdcvs.fnal.gov/redmine/projects/larbatch/wiki/User_guide as a wrapper once definitions of the data have been created. 
391 68 Dominic Barker
For now you can use ifdh_fetch to fetch one or more files. It works in the same way as SAM and here is a couple examples on using it: 
392 68 Dominic Barker
393 68 Dominic Barker
Know the file name: 
394 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>ifdh_fetch -e lariat filename.root</pre>
395 68 Dominic Barker
396 68 Dominic Barker
Copy every file with a name that begins with sbnd_r. (NOTE: We have the downloaded so don't do it again. Just run on them. If they have been deleted because it has been a long time and we need the space for MC productions then you can download them but make sure we have the space!): 
397 68 Dominic Barker
398 68 Dominic Barker
<pre>ifdh_fetch -e lariat --dims "file_name like sbnd_r%.root"</pre>
