Instructions for SIDIS Experiment


1. Keep an eye on the Hall C Scaler Data GUI and make sure the rates with beam ON are steady

2. In the middle of the run, check online plots for the detectors

a. Update the file " standard.Kinematics " : usually opened in HIGH VOLTAGE Monitor (HCDESK 2 )

  path : 
/net/cdaqfs/home/cdaq/hallc-online/hallc_replay/DBASE/COIN/STD/standard.kinematics
b. Login to cdaql1 machine and go to hallc_replay directory:
  > ssh cdaql1 
  > go_analysis 
  for SHMS detector check: ./run_coin_shms.sh <run_number>
  for HMS detector check: ./run_coin_hms.sh <run_number>
c. Once you have about 200000 events, analyze the run with :
 ./run_coin_sidis.sh <run_number>
e. Run the script:  ./UTIL_SIDIS/scripts/run_sidis_spec_compare.sh <run number> <targ> <p-m> <kine group> <pt setting>
d. Run the script: ./UTIL_SIDIS/scripts/run_sidis_kine_compare.sh <run number> <targ> <p-m> <kine group> <pt setting>
<targ> is the target d or h
 p or m is the SHMS polarity plus or minus  
<kinematics group> is a number between 1 to 4 corresponding to the 4 different groups of kinematic settings  
<pt setting> is a number between 1 to 12 is the p_t setting for the current run (consult the run plan)
 make sure the red and blue histograms agree with each other, if not inform the shift leader and RC


3. After the full run, check the Good events and Update the run_list wiki

a. Make sure the standard.Kinematics file was updated in step 2 above.
b. For a quick report on the charge collected in the run Analyze the full run with :
 ./run_charge_sidis.sh <run_number> and record the total charge in the run-list wiki.

c. Analyze the full run with :
 ./run_full_sidis.sh <run_number> and record the total charge  of the run in the run-list wiki.
d. Run the script
 ./UTIL_SIDIS/run_beancounter.sh <run_number> <target>
  <target> = d or h

record counts to run_list wiki
