Instructions to install ILCsoft in Ubuntu 14 LTS release.
We want to install the v01-17-09 ILCsoft release, for that we want to use c++11, and therefore some packages need to be installed previously.
Boost 1.58 (installation script in the link)
Other requirements (from http://www.desy.de/~rosem/howtos/howto_install_ilcsoft_on_ubuntu.txt)
########################### # (1) System preparation: # ########################### In order to be able to build and use ilcsoft at all; vanilla Ubuntu needs several packages. #--- mysql includes etc. sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev #--- create a links for mysql (if missing): sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib64 sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so.18 /usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so #--- install code mgmt and build tools: sudo apt-get install subversion sudo apt-get install cvs sudo apt-get install cmake sudo apt-get install cmake-curses-gui #ccmake sudo apt-get install doxygen sudo apt-get install latex2html #--- graphics stuff (X and OpenGL): sudo apt-get install libxext-dev sudo apt-get install freeglut3-dev sudo apt-get install libxmu-dev libxi-dev #--- ROOT stuff sudo apt-get install dpkg-dev sudo apt-get install libxpm-dev sudo apt-get install libxft-dev sudo apt-get install python2.7-dev #--- javac: sudo apt-get install default-jdk #--- if needed/wanted: cernlib and gfortran sudo apt-get install cernlib sudo apt-get install gfortran # ---- liblog4cxx10 sudo apt-get install liblog4cxx10-dev OR: in single line: sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev subversion cvs cmake cmake-curses-gui doxygen latex2html libxext-dev freeglut3-dev libxmu-dev libxi-dev dpkg-dev libxpm-dev libxft-dev python2.7-dev default-jdk cernlib gfortran liblog4cxx10-dev && sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib64 && sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so.18 /usr/lib64/libmysqlclient.so
It might be also a good idea to install all root requirements:
sudo apt-get install git dpkg-dev make g++ gcc binutils libx11-dev libxpm-dev \ libxft-dev libxext-dev sudo apt-get install gfortran libssl-dev libpcre3-dev \ xlibmesa-glu-dev libglew1.5-dev libftgl-dev \ libmysqlclient-dev libfftw3-dev cfitsio-dev \ graphviz-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev \ libldap2-dev python-dev libxml2-dev libkrb5-dev \ libgsl0-dev libqt4-dev
Installation of ILCSOFT
The first is to download the code (from desy).
svn co https://svnsrv.desy.de/desy/ilctools/ilcinstall/tags/v01-17-09 ilcinstall-v01-17-09
To install it, you will need to make few changes in the release-ilcsoft.cfg and release-versions.py files in
Also the ilcsoft/qt.py and ilcsoft/root.py need some changes:
- to find the proper link to download the versions (qt and root)
- to install root with all needed dependencies, specifically with enable-qt which is not the usual but is required by DQM4HEP.
Here you can find those files.
To install ilcsoft with all needed packages for DQM4HEP, just go to the folder and write:
!! the ilcsoft/root.py is not modified to find the right root version (is in the to-do-list, sorry): I downloaded manuallly so the python script only makes the compilation.
To install DQM4HEP:
- First download the git-hub package:
git clone https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/DQM4HEP DQM4HEP-AHCAL cd DQM4HEP-AHCAL
- Then modify the CMakeLists.txt file to point to the AHCALMonitoring git-hub repository
SET( xdrstream_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/xdrstream.git" ) SET( xdrlcio_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/xdrlcio.git" ) SET( DQMCore_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/DQMCore.git" ) SET( DQMViz_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/DQMViz.git" ) SET( DQM4ILC_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/DQM4ILC.git" ) SET( JsonCpp_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/jsoncpp.git" ) SET( DIM_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/dim.git" ) SET( DIMJC_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/dimjc.git" ) SET( levbdim_repository "https://github.com/DQM4HEP/levbdim.git" )
SET( xdrstream_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/xdrstream.git" ) SET( xdrlcio_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/xdrlcio.git" ) SET( DQMCore_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/DQMCore.git" ) SET( DQMViz_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/DQMViz.git" ) SET( DQM4ILC_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/DQM4ILC.git" ) SET( JsonCpp_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/jsoncpp.git" ) SET( DIM_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/dim.git" ) SET( DIMJC_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/dimjc.git" ) SET( levbdim_repository "https://github.com/AHCALMonitoring/levbdim.git" )
- Finally, modify the paths of following script and install all the packages by running it in the folder that is your DQM4HEP-AHCAL
export LCIO_DIR=/home/calice/Programs/ilcinstall-v01-17-09/v01-17-09/lcio/v02-05 export ILCUTIL_DIR=/home/calice/Programs/ilcinstall-v01-17-09/v01-17-09/ilcutil/v01-02-01 source /home/calice/Programs/ilcinstall-v01-17-09/v01-17-09/root/5.34.30/bin/thisroot.sh source /home/calice/Programs/ilcinstall-v01-17-09/v01-17-09/init_ilcsoft.sh mkdir build cd build cmake -DBUILD_DQMVIZ=ON -DBUILD_DQM4ILC=ON -DBUILD_EXAMPLES=ON -DINSTALL_DOC=ON -DDIM_GUI=ON .. make
You might need to modify the FindLCIO.cmake file on ilcutils. Here is an example (change tha path in the right places) FindLCIO.cmake
Quasi online AHCAL Raw Monitoring
Setting up the monitor
The first step is to set up the correct environment, since each element should be run in a separate terminal window. Add the following lines to your .bashrc, changing the directories as necessary. Note that this should also be added to the .bashrc for the super user, as one step requires a super user environment.
source /home/calice/Programs/ilcinstall-v01-17-09/v01-17-09/init_ilcsoft.sh export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH export PATH=/home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/bin:$PATH export DIM_DNS_NODE=localhost export DQM4HEP_PLUGIN_DLL=/home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/lib/libDQM4ILC.so:/home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/lib/libAHCALRawModule.so
To access recently-taken and live data, the folder of the EUDAQ PC where the LCIO data is written to must be made available by mounting. Enter the following in your terminal:
sshfs firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/calice/EUDAQ1.6-TestBeamMay2016/data /home/calice/DataMount -oauto_cache,reconnect,allow_other
DNS and DIMJC Daemon
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter the following in the terminal window:
dns & dimjc_daemon
Leave this terminal open for the entire duration; closing it will break the connections between all other processes.
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the run control:
dqm4hep_start_run_control_server -r AHCALRunControl -k pass &
The argument after -r is the name of this process. This must be the same as in your XML file. The argument after -k is the password needed to begin or end a run.
Then you need to start the interface to the server. Enter this command:
dqm4hep_start_run_control_interface -r AHCALRunControl
The argument after -r is the name of this process. This must be the same as in your XML file, as well as the server above. A window with a GUI will open. As far as I know, all that is necessary for online monitoring is to press the START RUN button, which ensures that the event collector and analysis module work correctly.
DQM Monitor GUI
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the monitor GUI:
This will open a GUI for viewing plots and histograms. To see your histograms, click "Browse", then choose the name of your monitor element collector from the drop-down list. You can select which plots to add using the checkboxes. Clicking "Append" adds all checked plots to the main window. There may be no options displayed if the monitor element collector is not running..
Plots will not be updated or kept unless they are subscribed. Individual plots can be subscribed to by checking the box by their names. All plots can be subscribed to by right-clicking anywhere on the list of plots and selecting "Subscribe all". Once subscribed, monitor elements are stored regardless of whether the plot is displayed. A plot can be displayed by double-clicking it. You can click "Update" to manually refresh all plots, or click "Start Update" to make them update automatically. New canvases for plots can be opened using the + sign at the top-right of the window.
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the event collector:
dqm4hep_start_event_collector -c ahcal_event_collector -s LCIOStreamer
The argument after -c is the name of this process, the name after -s is the name of the file streamer to save events from. These must be the same as in your XML file.
Monitor Element Collector
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the monitor element collector:
dqm4hep_start_monitor_element_collector -c ahcal_me_collector
The argument after -c is the name of this process. This must be the same as in your XML file.
In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the analysis module:
dqm4hep_start_analysis_module -f /home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/DQM4ILC/source/examples/AHCALRawModule/lcioAHCALTests.xml
The argument after -f is the path to the XML file used to define your histograms and other processes. ""IMPORTANT:"" Make sure that all the process names in the XML file are the same as the ones you use at runtime. Ensure that you are using the same type of histogram in the XML file as your module file, otherwise the analysis module will throw segmentation faults as soon as it tries to push data into histograms.
LCIO File Service
This should be the last thing to be run, as when the LCIO file service is started the run will begin and data will start being processed by the analysis module. In a new terminal window with init.sh already executed, enter this command to start the LCIO file service:
dqm4hep_start_lcio_file_service -f /home/calice/DataMount/tests/Run_41750__whatever.slcio -c ahcal_event_collector -t 0
The argument after -f is the path to the SLCIO file to read events from (separate several with a colon), the argument after -c is the name of the event collector to send events to, and the argument after -t is the time interval between reading events and sending them to the event collector (in usec).
Asumming that we want to run only one Analysis Module (i.e. Power Pulsing module) and the dns and dimjc_daemon are running in the background (see explanations above).
1) In /home/calice, load all the dqm4hep elements:
This is only needed once, but eventually an element will crash. In this case kill them, for that:
2) In the Run Control, click Start run and introduce the password defined in the manual_start.sh script, (normally will be "pass")
This is only required once at the begining.
3) Modify accordingly the xml file (for example chosing the channel numbers or the memory cell to use in the plots) and start the analisys module:
dqm4hep_start_analysis_module -f /home/calice/Programs/DQM4HEP-TBMay2016/DQM4ILC/source/examples/AHCALRawModule/TestbeamMay2016_PowePulsing/lcioTestbeamPowerPulsing.xml
4) In the DQM Monitoring window browse for the plots: chose ahcal_me_collector and clic update list. Then append all the plots. All of them will appear in a browser tree in the DQM Monitoring window, suscribe to all of them and organize them in the canvas as you want.
5) Start the streamer with the name of the file to look into (and the full path if you are not in the right path)
dqm4hep_start_lcio_file_service -c ahcal_event_collector -t 0 -f /home/calice/DataMount/tests/Run_41750__whatever.slcio
After the first time that you do 1->5, you only need to repeat, for every run, the steps 3 and 5 (not the 4!!)
instructions for July/August Testbeam
cd /home/calice/TB2016/scripts source
Then, import, in the monitoring tab, the appropiate configuration file, for example MIPcalibration_thirdRound.xml (in scripts folder) that contains all the histograms and canvas already booked and prepared.
Import the setting for the run control (now the channel choice is done in the run control)
The run control asks for password: just click okay.
Load analysis modules in two terminals
dqm4hep_start_analysis_module -f /home/calice/TB2016/DQM4HEP-AHCAL/DQM4ILC/source/examples/AHCALRawModule/TestbeamJuly2016_Hitmaps/lcioHitMap.xml
dqm4hep_start_analysis_module -f /home/calice/TB2016/DQM4HEP-AHCAL/DQM4ILC/source/examples/AHCALRawModule/TestbeamJuly2016_15channels/lcio15channelsX4.xml
Stream the lcio files
dqm4hep_start_lcio_file_service -v INFO -t 1 -c ahcal_event_collector -f /home/calice/TB2016/Data_July2016/MIP/20160729/Run_4331029p07p201616p51p40.slcio
For every new position, we only need to: stop the run, import the run configuration, change channels numbers in the run control, start the run and stream the lcio file.
If we are interested in hit maps, only start stop is needed (not the loading of the conf)
