Agenda

  1. runlist
    • What do we need to do before we're ready to respin all of the concurrent running
      • Look at the event cuts---Tao
        • TY: will check the number of events cut around a low/high beam cut and after I'll replay the 1400s run#s.
      • SAM pedestals---Tao and Devi (Tao has found different beam-dependent pedestals, should we use those or just the beam-off peds?)
        • TY: for now we'll go with the pedestals we have now.
      • Do we need to mess with beamline pedestals? Not for this pass.
      • We'd like to have a run-summary tree: CC: working on it and should be done soon. CG: we'll test your code on the runs Tao replays and go from there. Expect presentation on Friday.
      • We want to have the post-pan regression feeding in into the run-summary tree (or friend-able) CC: functionality will be there from the start for the summary tree
      • SR: will have some results for the text output soon (late this week or next week)
  2. "Operations" branch
    • PK: we should talk to Caryn and figure out if she changed the configuration in the CH crate so that we update it on the japan channel mapping.
  3. Pull requests
    • PK: merged dev->master->operations
    • PK: Tao is cleaning up the beam line channel mapping for the APEX running. Will coordinate with Tao on how we should proceed.
  4. online plots
    • PK: should work now. Closing this issue.
  5. pair analysis
    • PK: Tao is working on the pair tree output.
  6. regression analysis
    • RR: we are transitioning from hard coded variables to arrays. Should have all the data handler functionality done by mid April
  7. feedback
    • AP: trying to do the PITA feedback, position feedback (should be done by Friday). IAx3 and helicity magnets still need to be implemented.
  8. Green Monster: there needs to be ways to set all the VQWKs/timing boards/etc consistently.
    • AZ: have a bug in the pyGM and working on it.
    • AZ: Kent wanted to have setting in the new GM to set values on the integration of the VQKs
  9. VQWK adcs
    • CC: one channel still needs to be looked at.
  10. DAQ issues
    • CC: CC, Bob, Chanda are working on it (Chandan is leading the effort). We gave a two week timeline before the detectors are pulled out
  11. bmwClient has issues with not pausing when CODA isn't in progress, being stopped and restarted, and to have parameters changed
    • PK will send an email with ideas

Bob's DAQ tasklist

 TO-DO list for Parity DAQ
   updated Jan 4, 2019
Cameron & Bob: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13
Tao & Cameron: 8, 9
Bob: 3, 6, 10
Cip, Cameron, Tao: 13  
1 Doing - Timing: mostly understood, still small mysteries (LNE)
2 Doing - Synchronization-check system. w/help from Ed Jastrzembski
5 To Do - Clean up cabling, labels, fasteners - First need to examine all signals
6 Clean up CRL -- eliminate so-called "dirty trick"
7 Check the 7200 scaler setup at injector, find a spare 7200.
8 Doing - Pedestal studies, aka cross-talk.  
10 Green Monster maintenance.
11 Doing - Test spares.  Repair bad modules.
12 Doing - Document everything.  Circuit diagrams, cable map, "how to".
13 Online software, a bit undefined since software is changing.
    (a) automatic production of run-dependent database
    (b) alarms like end-of-run voice (Bob)
    (c) feedback
    (d) coil-pulsing aka modulation aka dithering (Victoria)
    (e) panguin (GUI showing real-time plots)
    (f) prompt analysis
    (g) e-logbook entries 
    (h) archiving EPICs data
