Data acquisition

DAQ server for common acquisition:
~/DAQServer/build/src/calopddaqserver runCommands.txt

The standard DAQ procedure::
/home/calocube/SPS2021/CaloCubeBTsoftware/bin/acquire_TROC -C -R 2:
/home/calocube/SPS2021/CaloCubeBTsoftware/bin/acquire_TROC -R 2 -T -o /home/calocube/SPS2021/acquired_files/

Standard analysis procedure:
/home/calocube/SPS2021/CaloCubeBTsoftware/bin/analyze_alone -O /home/calocube/SPS2021/acquired_files/FILE_NAME.dat:

Standard performance monitor::
TO BE DONE

Oct 8

PD: finished mounting and testing readout. Short circuits problem found and solved. (need more details..)

Oct 9

PD: channel noise tested with the external box closed. The mean noise is < 20 ADC, while 4 channels have large noise (> 50 ADC).
The file is "20211009_154027.dat" on the RPI4 SD, folder "~/HIDRA_2.0/acquired_files/"

20:00. Acquire data using the PD system with ground muons.

Calibration file: 20211009_195607
Two large scintillators are used to select muons on the front of the calorimeter. Some calibration are events are also acquired @ 0.3 Hz.
File: 20211009_200436 20211010_032616

PD: 20:35. Acquire data using the PD system with ground muons.

Calibration file: 20211010_202948
Two large scintillators are used to select muons on the front of the calorimeter. Some calibration are events are also acquired @ 0.3 Hz.

File: 20211010_203553 20211011_040048

Oct 11

PD: 15:57: two calibration acquisition with PD system and I2C trigger provided by IHEP trigger board.
file: 20211011_153110 20211011_154505
The mean noise of PD channels is < 20 ADC as expected

17:30 Acquisition with muons started, we acquired a single file: 20211011_172919.dat

Oct 14

PD: 23:45 calibration file before closing the area: 20211014_232248.root 20211014_232435.root
File with muons inside the beam area, large scintillator (10x10) is used: 20211014_232755.root

First electron @ 250 GeV file: 20211015_000302 First proton @ 350 GeV file: 20211015_001137

Starting long proton run @ 350 GeV: 20211015_011416 20211015_025359 20211015_043348 20211015_061158

Oct 15

10:30 calibration run: 20211015_103644
13:10 starting the common DAQ with protons @ 350 GeV
14:20 first acquisition with all detectors (no FIT) receiving trigger: CALOPD_RUN00035_BEAM_20211015_122209
15:30 first calibration with all detectors connected: CALOPD_RUN00037_CAL_20211015_132833
15:40 with the common DAQ for the name of the run see the table

Oct 17

CALOPD_RUN00116_BEAM_20211017_060424 we see some channels with adc_cn pedestal value of 18000 (suspected bad pedestal subtraction)

Oct 18

First calibration procedure done, 8 points from 0 to 3 V free gain folder: calibration/20211018_000904 forced gain: ./calibration//20211018_002121

Oct 19

CALOPD_RUN00159_BEAM_20211018_092837.root correlation adc_cn[12][7]:adc_cn[13][7] very strange
