Instructions for EMC Expert Shifters
Please feel free to edit the file.
- A shift block begins with the Monday
EMC Operations meeting (to understand the ongoing issues) and
ends with a summary report (email to EMCOperemail@example.com,
or preferably a verbal report to the meeting) during the operations meeting
the following week.
- Daily checks of the EMC data quality are very important in the EMC group.
It alerts experts to problems that may have been missed by the DQM shifter
(who will not in general be an EMC expert), and can provide valuable extra
information when problems are uncovered further up the processing chain.
Your shifts/contributions are highly welcome.
If you're unfamiliar with the OEP plots, have a look at
the reference guide. This is the
major part of your daily report.
||XTal Energy Spectra Monitoring
Details of what to look for are being prepared. In the meantime,
take a look at the XTal Energy Spectra Monitoring page and note anything
of concern in your report. The monitoring page is prepared once daily, so
you only need to do this once a day.
||Lightpulser Calibration Results
The almost-daily lightpulser calibration is a part of
the central calibration performed by the pilot. Do have a look at the
Summary plots from the latest calibration as well as the Differences to the
last LP run (link at the bottom of the same webpage). Systematic differences
from day to day should be logged on the Daily Report page. Anything else that
seems odd to you should be reported on the Daily Report.
First, have a look at what the previous
shifter has written and get a feel for what's going on and
see how to file a report.
- Copy a template to your directory (obviously you want the latest one
and not the old one indicated here)
%cp $BFROOT/www/Detector/Calorimeter/Operations/ShiftReport/20031019.html myreport.html
- Edit myreport.html following the format
already in the report by the previous shifter.
- Make a copy and move it to report repository using today's date:
%cp myreport.html $BFROOT/www/Detector/Calorimeter/Operations/ShiftReport/YYYYMMDD.html where YYYYMMDD is today's date.
- Edit $BFROOT/www/Detector/
Calorimeter/Operations/ShiftReport/index.html to make an entry
for your report.
- Don't mess up files in the repository. You can prepare your next
report based on myreport.html in your personal directory.
If you have any doubt, contact the
EMC commissioner as soon as possible.
