(see C. Gaspar)


Objectives
Objectives

  • Initialize, configure and monitor detector components

    • e.g. boards, channels, trigger algorithms

  • Running modes/activities

    • physics, calibration, subdetector testing

  • Store configuration data in a database

  • Design and implementation

    • Schema

    • Tools: maintenance, data entry/retrieval, configuration, expansion, navigation


Requirements
Requirements

  • Layout

    • Functions, hierarchy and configuration of components

    • Logical & physical descriptions

  • Inventory

    • Hardware (sensors, control devices, electronics devices)

    • Where (geographical position)

    • What it is (serial nb, bar code)

  • History

    • Spares

    • Repairs

  • Configuration of control system

    • Bootstrap

    • Startup of controls pcs in case of failure


Detector layout and configuration
Detector layout and configuration

  • Static information

    • To startup the detector

    • Component hierarchy (hw connectivity, network connectivity)

    • FE electronics (chips, boards); DAQ (network processors, subfarm controllers, pcs); TFC (RU supervisors, switches, throttles); slow control (voltage supplies, CC PCs, VLMCBs); racks, crates

  • Dynamic information

    • Activities (cosmics, physics, calibration, debugging)

    • Detector partitions

    • Downloadable parameters


Users
Users

  • Control system

    • Bootstrap control system

    • Turn components off/on

    • Define what to read out

    • Dynamically build downloadable parameter tables depending on the activity/partition

  • Configuration db manager

    • Make large modifications via programs

  • Others…


Tools
Tools

  • Data retrieval/storage

    • Which activity, which partition, start run

    • Extraction tool -> create PVSS project from DB

    • Cache frequently used recipes

  • Maintenance

    • Graphical navigation tool to locate components (in PVSS?)

    • Version control

  • Configuration

    • Partition editor

  • Expansion

    • Scripting interface for mass population


Technology
Technology

  • ORACLE for the data base

  • Java for GUI tools

  • Python as scripting language

  • C++ for interfacing to PVSS

  • IT/CO PVSS configuration DB tool for framework v3.0 will be integrated

    • Save PVSS configurations in DB

  • Work done by Z. Maxa

    • CC PC db with python and xml

  • Rackwizard & Label bar code java tools

    • Java tools from CMS (F. Glege)


Development plan
Development plan

  • Subdetector data flow, start with TFC

  • First prototype schema (L. Abadie)

  • Write some selections in C++ to connect to PVSS

  • Contact subdetectors for requirements

  • Second prototype schema (spring 2004)

  • Design interfaces

  • Develop tools (spring/summer 2004)

  • Start adding data (autumn 2004)

  • First production version early 2005
