    <8-bit signal> <8-bit reminder> <2-bit integer result of division>

    Signal is extended by the value in the range 0-31.
    For example, signal 00010010 and value 2 result in extended signal
    01111110 with reminder 00000000 and 00 or in hex 7e 00 0.
    For the signal 00010010 and value 12 we get 11111110 with reminder
    00000001 and 01 or in hex fe 01 1.

    The mapping between memory addresses and signals is given in %addr2sig hash.

Usage:

   Command line: widthGenerator.pl
   Without args      : Generate hex output for the extended signals.
   [-a|--all]        : Show additional numbers in bin and hex formats.

      .............................................

   where
      sig1  : Initial signal in binary format.
      val   : Value for signal extension in decimal format.

daqop

General description

The daqop tool is used as a simplified, human-readable access to TRBNET. It operates outside the optical network on a common PC. The PC, however, needs an ethernet connection to a TRB. It calls trbcmd on ETRAX, parses the output and displays it either in raw or human-readable form.

  • Name: daqop
  • CVS Root: /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/
  • CVS Repository: trbsoft/daqop

Usage:

   Command line:  daqop
   help                        : List all commands and syntax info.
   trbcmd <args>               : Executes a remote trbcmd call, as specified in <args>, e.g. daqop trbcmd r 0x0
   <...>                       : all other commands can be found using 'help'.
   []                          : No command - starts the interactive mode (not used anymore)

   Examples:

            daqop read ids
            daqop read oep voltages
            daqop get code violations
   

Errorhandling

The daqop tool forwards all Errors and Warnings from trbcmd. If a Warning occurs, it will continue operating and the warning will be attached to the output at the end. An Error breaks daqop immediately. All trbcmd errors are prompted as Errorcode 01 - internal TRBNET error. In addition to that, there are daqop-internal errorcodes enumerated from 02-06.

hubmonitor.pl

Use this script in a terminal to monitor the hub status and busy times. If it shows abnormal behavior - enlarge the screen wink The script does not respond to user inputs - kill it with ctrl-c.

globalmonitor.pl

Shows (a) system - busies, (b) if a board that should be present in TrbNet is not found, and (c) error status (a + denotes that more similar errors on that particular subsystem were found). If it shows abnormal behavior - enlarge the screen wink The script does not respond to user inputs - kill it with ctrl-c.

   Insert info on subEvtIds from file subevtids.txt to Oracle:
       board2ora.pl -t subevtid -f subevtids.txt

   Insert info on boards from file boards.txt to Oracle:

daq2ora_client.pl - daemon to insert board info to Oracle

  • Name: daq2ora_client.pl
  • CVS Root: /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/
  • CVS Repository: trbsoft/daq/oracle/

This script runs in the background as a daemon, reads new files in the directory and stores the info on the boards to the Oracle data base. The time stamp of the file must be later than the time stamp of the last commit to the Oracle.

daq2ora_client.pl

   This script stores information related to the boards in Oracle data base.

Usage:

   Command line:  daq2ora_client.pl
   [-h|--help]               : Print this help.
   [-b|--base name]          : A base of file name to read (default: daq2ora).
   [-i|--indir name]         : Directory with input files (default: /home/hadaq/oper/daq2ora).
   [-d|--daemon]             : Run as a daemon.
   [-o|--oracle]             : Do insert to Oracle data base.
   [-p|--sport port]         : Port for status server.
   [-v|--verb]               : More verbous.
   [-f|--file file]          : Given file for insertion to Oracle.

Exaples:

   Insert info from files in $opt_dir to Oracle and be verbous:
      daq2ora_client.pl -o -v

Magnet data to Oracle

Each midnight Labview writes the Magnet data to hades28:/home/magnet/Hades_Magnet_Labview/Log/log1/. This data is copied each night to the standard GSI PC:
  • The cron job on hades28 executes /home/magnet/cron/cp_magnet_data.pl which copies the second last file at 1:00 at night from hades28 to lxhadesdaq:/home/hadaq/magnet/data/
  • The cron job on lxhadesdaq executes /home/hadaq/cron/scripts/cp_magnet_data.pl which copies the last file at 2:00 at night from lxhadesdaq to lxi001:/misc/hadaq/magnet/data/

The copying procedure must be done via lxhadesdaq because hades28 is only in HADES VLAN. Passwordless access is required from magnet@hades28 to hadaq@lxhadesdaq and from hadaq@lxhadesdaq to hadaq@lxi001.

The corresponding scripts are also in CVS:
  • Name: cp_magnet_data1.pl (Magnet data from hades28 to lxhadesdaq)
  • Name: cp_magnet_data2.pl (Magnet data from lxhadesdaq to lxi001)
  • CVS Root: /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/
  • CVS Repository: tools

Event Builders

daq_disks - Server for data storage on multiple disks

Event Builder processes running on one machine should be able to write to different disks (and several EBs should never write on the same disk). daq_disks server provides a disk number for daq_evtbuild via shared memory (daq_evtbuild must be executed with --multidisk option). daq_disks finds itself all shared memory segments opened by EBs.

  • Name: disks

  • Name: eb_logmonitor.pl
  • CVS Root: /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/
  • CVS Repository: trbsoft/daq/evtbuild

Usage:

   [-t|--thsleep <sec>]    : Sleep time of threads in sec (default: 5).
   [-v|--verb]             : More verbouse.
   [-d|--dir <dir>]        : Directory with log files (default: /home/hadaq/oper).
   [-b|--daemon]           : Execute as a daemon.

Displaying and colorizing EB log

To read and display the output of eb_logmonitor.pl one should simply start /home/hadaq/Desktop/DAQ/EBLog_Watch.desktop on lxhadesdaq.

The following is the sequence of commands which will be then executed:

  • /home/hadaq/Desktop/DAQ/EBLog_Watch.desktop
    • xterm -geometry 132x8-0-200 -bg darkblue -fg white -cr white -ms white -T "EB Log Watch" /home/hadaq/bin/eblog_watch
  • /home/hadaq/bin/eblog_watch
    • tail -n 300 --follow=name /home/hadaq/oper/eb_all_log.txt | /home/hadaq/bin/colorizelog_eb.pl

The script colorizelog_eb.pl is colorizing the output.

  • Name: colorizelog_eb.pl

   if the hld files from the list were archived on tape and also
   finds the files on the disks of the EB servers.

   You can grep and sort the output of this script and provide it as
   input to data2tape.pl to archive the data: ./bin/data2tape.pl -f /tmp/lxhadeb02_hld2tape.txt -a hadesuser -d kgoebel/hld

Scan ports of Event Buidler

  • Name: scan_active_ports.pl
  • CVS Root: /misc/hadesprojects/daq/cvsroot/
  • CVS Repository: tools

   This script reads the ports from a file /tmp/eb1_192.168.100.11.txt
   generated by start_eb_gbe.pl script. And then it scans all the ports
   and defines which ports got no data.

   If you reconfigure DAQ and change data sources, do not forget
   to restart start_eb_gbe.pl to generate new files with active ports.

   Make sure that no other EB processes are listening to the ports
   when you run this script.

Usage:

   Command line:  startup.pl
   [-h|--help]             : Show this help.
   [-e|--eb <EB_number>]   : Scan ports for this EB number.
