April 05, 2007 (E.Tanke): New trigger handling for HW trigger 1 (bit 0)

  • When in triggered mode, the BSM23W (and BSM23E) unit will sit and wait for this trigger. As soon as it sees the trigger the shutter will be opened after which there is a fixed delay of 70k turns before data taking starts (one needs to wait for the shutter to open and for mechanical vibrations to settle). Note that this is the way these units now function ONLY for taking raw data and ONLY for trigger bit 0. This can be expanded as needed.

April 11, 2007 : /nfs server directory restructuring

  • The /nfs server directory has been restructured (see this link). BSM23W files that have been stored under /nfs/cesr/temp/ts101/BSM23W_data before, can now be found under /nfs/acc/temp/ts101/BSM23W_data

June 2007

June 12, 2007 (E.Tanke): Reset of moxa server

  • Had to reset the moxa server. T.Wilksen and C.Strohman will discuss how to deal with this issue in the long run:
    • The Coldfire can be made to auto-boot (thus in principle eliminating the need for a moxa server), but the non-volatile memory of the Coldfire has been seen to get corrupted at times
    • Adding a moxa server would in principle allow one to always interact with the Coldfire (e.g. cause it to reboot) but:
      • Adding over 100 moxa servers for future operation of CESR-TA and for ERL would be costly
      • Sometimes the moxa servers themselves get blocked; this means that for ease of operation, one would need to add the capability of a remote reset or remote power on/off control
    • A solution may be to have a single server serving multiple Coldfires with serial lines
