Run 20

Status of calibration timeline initialization

In RUN: EEMC, EMC, EPD, ETOF, GMT, TPC, MTD, TOF
Test: FST, FCS, STGC (no tables)
Desired init dates where announced to all software coordinators:

- Geometry tag has a timestamp of 20191120
- Simulation timeline [20191115,20191120[
- DB initialization for real data [20191125,...]

     Please initialize your table content appropriate yi.e.
sim flavor initial values are entered at 20191115 up to 20191119
(please exclude the edge),  ofl initial values at 20191125
(run starting on the 1st of December, even tomorrow's cosmic
and commissioning would pick the proper values).

Online Monitoring POC

The final list from the SPin PWGC can be found at You do not have access to view this node . The table below includes the Spin PWGC feedback and other feedbacks merged.

  Directories we inferred are being used (as reported in the RTS Hypernews)
  scaler Len Eun and Ernst Sichtermann (LBL) This directory usage was indirectly reported
  SlowControl James F Ross (Creighton)  
  HLT Qi-Ye Shou The 2012 directory had a recent timestamp but owned by mnaglis. Aihong Tang contacted 2013/02/12
Answer from  Qi-Ye Shou 2013/02/12 - will be POC.

  fmsStatus Yuxi Pan (UCLA) This was not requested but the 2011 directory is being overwritten by user=yuxip
FMS software coordinator contacted for confirmation 2013/02/12
Yuxi Pan confirmed 2013/02/13 as POC for this directory

     
Spin PWG monitoring related directories follows
  L0trg Pibero Djawotho (TAMU)  
  L2algo Maxence Vandenbroucke (Temple)  
  cdev Kevin Adkins (UKY)  
  zdc Len Eun and Ernst Sichtermann (LBL)  
  bsmdStatus Keith Landry (UCLA)  
  emcStatus Keith Landry (UCLA)  
  fgtStatus Xuan Li (Temple) This directory is also being written by user=akio causing protection access and possible clash problems.
POC contacted on 2013/02/08, both Akio and POC contacted again 2013/02/12 -> confirmed as OK.

  • 2013/11/15
    • Info gathering begins (directories/areas and Point of Contacts)
      Status:
      2013/11/22, directory structure, 2 people provided feedback, Renee coordinated the rest
      2013/11/25, calibration POC, 3 coordinators provided feedback - Closed 2013/12/04
      2013/12/04, geometry for Run 14,
       
    • Basic check: CERT for online is old if coming from the Wireless
      Status: fixed at ITD level, 2013/11/18 - the reverse proxy did not have the proper CERT
