Installation

Install PVSS and get a license

This takes time : http://itcobe.web.cern.ch/itcobe/Services/Pvss/welcome.html (register, download, install software & patches, request a license, install the license)

For problems with the license see : http://itcobe.web.cern.ch/itcobe/Services/Pvss/FAQ/Questions/invalidLicense.html

As root :

chmod -t /tmp

Create an account for pvss on an Oracle server : pvss_rbasset on int5r.

Create a project

Clean all the old projects and create a new one (MyDCS in $HOME, standard, Eng_US, runnable).

Add four sections to config according to Jim's document https://edms.cern.ch/file/684959//PVSS-COOL.pdf on p.8.

Change the .dll with .so for the GNU/Linux version.

Edit config/progs to remove all valarchs.

Add RDB manager via the console (-num 99, start manual).

The entries in EVENTHISTORY_000200Main.01 are only from the four elements (see table ELEMENTS) _ReduManager, _ReduManager2, ExampleDP_DPE, ExampleDP_Trend. I open PARA (from GEDI), enable internal DPs and I remove the _archive config for all four. Eventually, no data is written to Oracle anymore.

Create new DPs

Create type MyInt.i as integer with instance MyInt1 and configure the instance for archive (add _archive and set it equal to RDB-99). It seems that initial values are not stored (even if the box is checked), but changed values are stored OK.

Create new panel

In order to change the DP values and check their value.
