Passports, Test Beam software and more

A git repository has been created to store, share and keep updated the software and passports information for the testbeam.

See https://github.com/CALICETB

Software packages and installation/running instructions (prepared for Ubuntu 14)

  1. ILCsoft http://flcwiki.desy.de/ILCSoftInstall

  2. Reconstruction for testbeam https://github.com/CALICETB/AHCAL-Reconstruction

  3. Monitoring, with DQM4HEP: http://flcwiki.desy.de/AHCALMonitoring_DQM4HEP

  4. EUDAQ http://flcwiki.desy.de/EUDAQforAHCAL (in construction)

Grid Install (save the data during testbeam)

This is done in SL6. http://flcwiki.desy.de/GridInstall

PCs

flchcallab4 --> Ubuntu 14, EUDAQ (ILCsoft and DQM4HEP are installed as backup)

flchcallab5 --> Ubuntu 14, Reconstruction software + VirtualMachine with SL6 and GridInstall

flchcallab6 --> Ubuntu 14, ILCsoft and DQM4HEP ( EUDAQ is installed as backup)

Campaigns in 2016 :


We had 2 weeks of beamtime at DESY, TB22, from 02/05 to 14/05. Elog is available here : https://ttfinfo.desy.de/CALICEelog-sec/show.jsp?dir=/2016/18/04.05&pos=2016-05-05T10:55:00

  1. DAQ tests: Monitoring improvement (DQM4HEP), EUDAQ improvements (BIF data, LED automatic scans) and speedups
  2. Setup 1 (4th - 9th of May): TDC calibrations using Electron Showers for 4 big Modules setup
  3. Setup 2 (10th May): MIP Calibration of the new HBU4
  4. Setup 3 (11th - May): Power-pulsing
