TOTEM shifter instruction

DAQ

To start a run with “The vFAT Duck”:
  • Press “Start processes”
  • Press “Start”
To stop a run with “The vFAT Duck”:
  • Press “Stop”
When to start a new run:
  • If run crashes. In that case, click "Halt" in LTC Control page before starting a new run.
  • If CMS stops the run
  • When beam ramp starts: One should stop run, run ./96p_120Pb.sh in ~/VME/run_scripts/new_firmware/ before starting the new run
If XDAQ online web-page is not running How to include RP into the DAQ configuration
  • Make sure that the DAQ is stopped.
  • Go to the Connected Run Parameters by pressing its < button
  • Go to the Disconnected Configuration by pressing its < button
  • Press its Define button, and select ‘load’
  • Select from the list of possible configurations the T2+RP+Trigger, and press OK. Press OK again, but beware that this pain appears in the lower monitor!
  • Press the > button of the Disconnected Configuration
  • Press the > button of the Connected Run Parameters
  • Go to the LCT Control windows and select by a checkmark the sTTS(3). Until starting the run this might look in busy state, and press Apply
How to remove RP from the DAQ configuration
  • Make sure that the DAQ is stopped.
  • Go to the Connected Run Parameters by pressing its < button
  • Go to the Disconnected Configuration by pressing its < button
  • Press its Define button, and select ‘load’
  • Select from the list of possible configurations the T2+Trigger, and press OK. Press OK again, but beware that this pain appears in the lower monitor!
  • Press the > button of the Disconnected Configuration
  • Press the > button of the Connected Run Parameters
  • Go to the LCT Control windows and remove the checkmark from the sTTS(3). and press Apply

Runlog

Make a new entry for each run in https://totem-runlog.web.cern.ch/totem-runlog/fcgi/runs/new/
  • Click “New run”
Where to find the information to fill in:

DCS

To start DCS:

  • ssh –X nturini@cmsusr0
  • (ask password from experts)
  • cd .rdesktop
  • rm (the only file in the directory)
  • rdesktop –u username –d CERN cerntscms –g1920x1080
  • give your password
  • click TOTEM DCS (TOTEM User Interface Window)
Monitor DCS for T2 voltages and current
  • Go to T2 page by clicking the box next to word T2.
  • If something is red, call Nicola (160907)
Check that TOTEM status flag is correct
  • Go to LHC page by clicking the box next to word LHC
  • Check TOTEM Status in Handshake box.
    • If not correct, change it by selecting the right one from the drop-down menu
  • Correct status flags:
    • Physics: data taking with stable beams
    • Standby: outside of stable beams
    • Calibration: test runs, e.g. latency scans

Trigger rate scripts

Graphical view of trigger logic: T2_CMS_Triggers_mod.pdf

Output from new_trigger_scalers_CMS.sh:

  • Trigger paths separated by #:
  • Columns for each trigger path:
    1. Raw trigger rate
    2. Trigger rate after the fork (fork = pre-selection of bunches that trigger)
    3. Pre-scaled trigger rate after the fork
  • Trigger paths from left to right:
    1. RP vertical 220
    2. RP horizontal 220
    3. CMS L1
    4. L1SA
    5. T2 minbias
    6. T2 low multiplicity
    7. CMS L1
    8. TOTEM L1
Output from CMSPath_scalers.sh:
  • Rates that TOTEM sends to CMS
  • Trigger paths separated by #:
  • Columns for each trigger path:
    1. Raw trigger rate
    2. Trigger rate after the fork (fork = pre-selection of bunches that trigger)
    3. Pre-scaled trigger rate after the fork
  • Trigger paths from left to right:
    1. RP vertical 220
    2. RP horizontal 220
    3. Bunch crossing
    4. T2 SD
    5. T2 min bias
    6. T2 low multiplicity
    7. L1 to CMS

Orbit synchronization

Check LTC Control for orbin sync
  • Go to LTC Control page
  • Check “Orbit in sync.?”
    • If “no”
      1. Go to Main Config –tab
      2. Select “Reset” (under QPLLCTRL B it 5 (ignored if not external):
      3. Click “Apply”
      4. Select “No Reset”
      5. Click “Apply”
