Emc Monitoring

This page was last updated at:

  1. Introduction
    This page contains links to material relevant for quality assurance of Emc data. Please provide feedback and send questions regarding the cron job to Danning Dong (x8692) or page 849-9104 if urgent. Miscellaneous (updated!) links regarding the cron jobs:
    Running the monitor job manually (updated 03/11/2002)
    Troubles with the cron jobs
    Update ir2boot with EmcStatusChans
    Flow-chart of the fast monitoring system (part of BaBar Note 535).

  2. Release Description
    The running EmcMoni executable (EmcOepReadXtc) is based on release 12.4.0 and EmcOepMon tag V00-03-02, which produces the new fiber damage plot (page 15 due to Helmut Marsiske). Dependencies are: EmcOep (V00-02-07), EmcOepSequences (V00-02-11), and HbkTuple(V00-05-03).

  3. EmcLive
    The following list contains the histograms of the last 40 runs processed by the 'small' cron-job (nominally 500 events are processed, using the first 50 to determine noisy channels). Run number is now printed on each page of EmcLive plots.
    0040190 0040188 0040187 0040186 0040185 0040184 0040183 0040182 0040181 0040180
    0040179 0040178 0040177 0040176 0040175 0040174 0040171 0040170 0040169 0040168
    0040167 0040166 0040165 0040164 0040163 0040162 0040161 0040160 0039726 0039726
    0039725 0039725 0039724 0039724 0039723 0039722 0039721 0039386 0039385 0039384
    If EmcLive stopped running and Danning is not immediately available to fix it, please try the following, which will get the job restarted most of the time.

    1. Log onto bbr-farm03 as babaremc (you should know the password, or you shouldn't be doing this).
    2. /bin/rm /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc EmcLive.lock
    3. logout
    After this, EmcLive cron job will usually be relaunched in 1 minute. Please wait for 5-10 minutes for new plots to appear on this web page. If this does not fix it, please page Danning Dong at 849-9104.

  4. EmcMoni

    The following list contains the histograms of the last 100 runs processed by the cron-job (the time indicates the creation time of the Hbook file - which is NOT the time of the run). EmcMoni is still processing the following runs: . The latest run is 41150.

    The old histogram files can be found on an NFS disk. They are backed up on tape (see below).

  5. OPR Monitoring Plots
    More plots can be found on the new OPR page. DQM OPR strip charts linked as PCn and ERn are here.


  6. EmcScalers
    Get the history of the number of noisy, dead, and damaged channels. The logfile for these plots contains three columns: runnumber, #noisy channels and #dead channels.

  7. Light Pulser Monitoring Plots
    LP Monitoring.

  8. Trigger Monitoring Plots
    Level 1: L1TMon, Level 3: L3TMon (hbook only).

  10. Retrieving Persistent FastMon Histograms New! 03/15/2002
    Supposing you would like to see the monitoring plot for run 26000, but it is not shown on the web page. Here is how you can easily make the plots yourself.

    1. Log on to bbr-farm03 as babaremc
    2. cd /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/hist
    3. tar xvf /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/oldhist/runs26000-26099.tar babar-0026000.hbook.gz
    4. Run the PERL script as follows
      /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/EmcMoni/perl/EmcHbookToPsInt 26000 26000
    5. As the script runs, a HIGZ window will pop up, drawing monitoring plots successively.
    6. After the HIGZ window disappears, some cleaning up is done. So wait for the job to finish.
    7. Now, the plot you have just made should be linked here on this page.
  11. Where can I find the dead, noisy, or damaged channel status data files for all the runs taken so far, e.g. for run 26000? New! 03/18/2002

    1. dead channel status file: /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/log/noisy/26x/26000.EmcDeadChannels.dat
    2. noisy channel status file: /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/log/dead/26x/26000.EmcNoisyChannels.dat
    3. damaged channel status file: /nfs/bbr-nfs03/detector/emc/log/damaged/26x/26000.EmcDamagedChannels.dat
