This is an old revision of the document!
This section is aimed at helping the Device Physicist remember the list of things that need to be done prior to the S800 tuning.
In S3 vault
Ensure that the object scintillator is in good conditions and has enough shimming positions to withstand the expected rates during the course of the experiment. The guideline document describing the installation and shimming procedure can be accessed here
In data U6
Verify that stagearea in u6pc5 is pointing to the right place. After typing
ls -l ~/stagearea in a u6pc5 terminal, you should see: /user/s800/stagearea → /mnt/daqtesting/s800/exxxxx, where xxxxx corresponds to the experiment number. If the experiment number is not right, follow the following steps:
Create a experiment directory in /mnt/daqtesting/s800 by typing
Go to the newly created experiment directory, and create subdirectories s800built, rawccusb, and rawvmusb
Create the stagearea link by typing
ln -s /mnt/daqtesting/s800/exxxxx stagearea
Run the S800 DAQ with multilogger enabled, and take some data on disk to ensure that the newly created stagearea is properly filled
