Howto start the TFC

At this moment the PileUp uses TFC_PART10 (static)

  • Login to a machine with PVSS installed (tpudcs01w)
  • Open the windows explorer and go to group\online\ecs\Shortcuts\TFC
  • start TFC_UI_DEN

The top level FSM panel should appear

  • click FSM tab
  • click + on TFC
  • click + on TFC (again)
  • select TFC_PART10 with the left mouse button
  • click right mouse button -> view

The Toplevel odin panel should appear

  • click the lock-button
    • if the message is "included" than
      • close the popup window
      • close the TFC_PART10 windows
      • right click in the FSM tree on node TFC_PART10 and do a start/restart
      • Warning: do not restart the top TFC node: it is used by all of LHCB
      • right click -> view
      • again click the lock button
    • if the message is "excluded" then press 'take'
  • Now the lock should be green and the 'system state' and 'subsystem-state' selection boxes are colored as well
  • Most probably the state is 'not ready' (yellow)
  • select recipe: -Cache : ODIN/R_All/PUS_PUTEST
  • push button 'set recipe'
  • do a 'configure' from the system state select box (drop down box)
  • a 'params' window pops up: click 'send'
  • the state goes via 'configuring' to ready (blue)
  • do a 'start' from the system state select box (drop down box)
  • the state should go to 'active' (blue)
  • do a 'start_trigger' from the system state select box (drop down box)
    • and take 1000 triggers (N_TRIGGERS) if N_TRIGGERS == 0 then if keeps running until you stop it
    • click 'send'
  • the state goes via 'active' to 'RUNNING' (green)
  • watch the trigger counters (calibration trigger A)
  • for N_TRIGGER = 0 the state becomes 'paused' (blue) after the specified number of triggers is reached

If you don't get triggers from the TELL1 (tputell01) then the PileUp might be in the wrong partition. To check:

  • in the TFC FSM tree view the 'TFC_ALLOC'
  • on the righthand panel the PUS should be connected to Partition 'Part_10'. If not call Richard Jacobsson

To stop:

  • select 'stop trigger' from the system state select box
  • free the TFC by clicking the lock-button
