Taking a data file on shift

This section is a basic instruction on how to take a data file when the VELO is in Local control.

Starting a run

  1. Go to the top panel and allocate resources:

  2. The status will change to NOT_READY:

  3. CONFIGURE the Velo ( this sends configuation signals to the Tell1s and timing components for the selected recipe

  4. Status will change to CONFIGURING and will remain like this for approximately 4 minutes as the Tell1s configure

  5. Upon completion status will change to READY:

  6. Click START_RUN. This sets a run number

  7. Click GO and data taking will commence for the desired number of events

  8. The status will change to RUNNING

  9. And the summary panel should be almost entirely green

  10. At the end of the data taking run, the status will change to PAUSED:

Stop the run

  1. To stop the run click STOP_RUN:

  2. Issue a RESET to return the system to its original state

  3. Free resources in the HLT farm by deallocating

  4. The status will change NOT_ALLOCATED
