== Checking that EPICS events are making it into the raw data files ==
 +
You can quickly verify that EPICS events are going into the raw data files by looking at the [https://halldweb.jlab.org/hoss HOSS database]. Just click on a run number and look for the count of EPICS events in the far right column of the bottom right table that appears. Note that the DAQ system writes two files simultaneously and only one will contain the EPICS events. This may need to be considered when looking at data offline.
 +
 +
[[File:20200829_HOSS_epics.png | 400px]]
 +
 +
To check actual values, you can run hd_dump from the hdops account on one of the gluon computers. Give it the options "-DDEPICSvalue -s" as shown below. It may take a little bit to get to the first EPICS event so be patient.
 +
 +

Detector configurations

Nominal GlueX configuration

  • No Pb shielding
  • DIRC installed
  • Solenoid field at 1350 A

CPP Test Configuration

  • With and without Pb shielding
  • DIRC removed
  • Solenoid field at 1350 A (no change)
  • Radiator Diamond JD70-105 47 um, Peak at 6 GeV

Data taking (standard GlueX)

  • daq_run: PHYSICS_DIRC
  • daq_setup: hd_all.tsg_DIRC_CC_HL
  • daq_config: FCAL_BCAL_PS_m9.conf
  • Use Random Trigger GUI to set the random trigger rate to 30 kHz.
  • Install desired target/lead sheet configuration
  • Ask MCC to deliver beam at 20 nA.
  • Start run.
    • Take data for 5-10 min of stable beam.
    • Ask MCC to deliver 40 nA. Continue with same run for 5-10 min of stable beam.
    • Ask MCC to deliver 30 nA. Continue with same run for 5-10 min of stable beam.
    • Ask MCC to deliver 10 nA. Continue with same run for 5-10 min of stable beam.
    • End run.
  • Go to next target/lead sheet configuration

Lead sheets

  • Shielding (from log entry 3656916)
    • We have used two sheets of shielding.
    • Each sheet consists of 2 sheets of Pb sandwiched between two layers of Al.
    • The thickness of Pb is 4.5-4.6 mm (0.80-0.84 rad len)
    • The thickness of Al is 2x1.6 mm = 3.2 mm (0.04 rad len)
    • Total radiation lengths is 0.86 +/- 0.02 radiation lenghts per sheet.
  • Sheets are 60cm x 60cm with a 18cm x 18cm beam hole. These sheets are the same as used in CPP Beam Test Feb. 2019 but with an enlarged opening for the beam.

Beam setup

  1. Turn lower section of tagger hodoscope ON.
  2. Restore beam with nominal configuration for JD70-105 diamond with the coherent peak at 8.6 GeV
  3. Check transmission using the PSC rate. It should be > 6.7 kHz.
  4. Move the coherent peak down to 6 GeV. Record the value of the PSC rate. Use this rate to gauge the transmission for the duration of the test.

Rates with Coherent Bremsstrahlung generator

  1. See Log Entry 3838451 for plots.
Coherent bremsstrahlung calculator
Coherent Peak 8.6 GeV 6.0 GeV
Background (0.1-3 GeV) 49.2 MHz 49.2 MHz
Peak (5.4-6.0 GeV) 11.5 MHz
Peak (8.0-8.6 GeV) 3.8 MHz
PS range (6-11.4 GeV) 14.2 MHz 12.8 MHz

Checks during the run

  1. TOF scaler rates
  2. EPICS beam current. If possible check that it is being recorded onto tape. See next section

Beam restoration

  1. Turn lower section of tagger hodoscope back OFF.
  2. Re-establish coherent peak back to 8.6 GeV.

Checking that EPICS events are making it into the raw data files

You can quickly verify that EPICS events are going into the raw data files by looking at the HOSS database. Just click on a run number and look for the count of EPICS events in the far right column of the bottom right table that appears. Note that the DAQ system writes two files simultaneously and only one will contain the EPICS events. This may need to be considered when looking at data offline.

To check actual values, you can run hd_dump from the hdops account on one of the gluon computers. Give it the options "-DDEPICSvalue -s" as shown below. It may take a little bit to get to the first EPICS event so be patient.

Finally, if you want to change the EPICS variables being written or the frequency in which they are written, edit the file ~hdops/CDAQ/daq/monitoring/epics2et.conf
