  • Make sure that DAQ is running. This is monitored on the MidasWebpage .
 
  • Make sure that when runs are manually started, all the information on the info page is correctly updated

Main monitoring tasks:

In addition to the MIDAS status page you should monitor the experimental equipment.

In addition to the MIDAS status page you should monitor the experimental equipment.You must do more than look at every item listed here throughout the shift. Read the numbers and think about them. Do the graphs and values make sense? We keep the checklist so you have a reference for what the numbers should be. If you don't know what a number should be or what a plot should look like, ask someone!
 
  • Monitor cryo TPC and CHUPS, it is essential for the safe operation of the experiment.

  • Once per shift fill out the checklist on zurban:/home/l_data/Desktop/Checklists, see desktop:5 on zurban.
  • observe online display (section 2.2 in Manual).

  • check HV and currents of chambers [zurban desktop:1]

  • observe visual scalers
scaler label function
1 proton current Proton accelerator beam current in nA
2 & 3 unused Some are connected but uninteresting
4 Forced trigger Forced trigger start signals for TPC WFDs
5 - 7 unused Some are connected but uninteresting
8 muSCa Veto halo counter used to collimate after the muSC
9 muSC "mu" Hits above the threshold for muons in muSC
10 muSC "e" muSC above electron thresh. Note that this is #Muons + #electrons
11 DAQ deadtime Fraction of time spend not taking data
12 1kHz counter Counts from 0 to 10000 at 1kHz. Use this to normalize the other scalers

  • observe separator HV, [zurban desktop: 3].

  • Logbook entries:
    • Report
      • significant changes and observations (make extra new elog entry)
      • at the end of a shift, the shift leader has to write a brief summary, e.g. shift goals, good runs and special
        shift events. (Category General / Type Shift Summary)
    • The shift run summary is on http://cheetah/musun/ by clicking on the runnumber a specific run can be edited.
      • Flag the run quality as "bad" if there is reason to believe the run is bad.

  • Once per shift fill out the checklist on zurban:/home/l_data/Desktop/Checklists, see desktop:5 on zurban
  • Shift Report : Each shift should have a log with notes about what happened during the shift. Significant changes or happenings should get their own elog entry. For an example, see elog:run3/575
  • The RunDatabase is on dolphin. By clicking on the run number a specific run can be edited.
    • Flag the run quality as 'N' if there is reason to believe the run is bad.
 
      • Add any special short comment in the comment box.
