ALICE dcsUI Version 3.0. dcsUI v3.0 is ready and will be soon posted on the ACC site ( Users are kindly asked to pay the ticket to A. Agustinus which is in the business! ); PVSS 3.6 version compliant; Graphic Qt library based; For Windows and Linux platforms. The dcsUI layout.
The dcsUI layout
It looks like the old one but....
New ‘fashion’ for
the FSM node control !
FSM Node Status & Control
It opens the FSM Control panel and is Enabled for the Operator user only
STATUS of selected FSM Node
A multi-page window appears only if more then 14 nodes have to be displayed
Due to some constraints in the Graphic Qt libraries, the FSM state color cannot cover the usual window and consequently it is almost invisible!!
In this UI new version, to make the state color more evident, the SubSystem name region is in addition colored! (Credits to M. Boccioli detto Giotto)
Main FSM control panelOnly widgets are provided! The panel design is on the detector (this is for the HMPID. For a different example please see M.Boccioli presentation).
All these functionalities are now officially released and documented.
From the FSM ‘Chart button’
From the FSM ‘Archiving button’
Distributed host status and moreEven if the PVSS project is not distributed and not running but only the console running (PMON manager) then the list of all the managers and their status can be monitored.
Clicking on the relevant square icon in the main FSM panel you open…….
The Configuration facility of the FSM Operation Mode
For which FSM Configuration can be useful for?
Once a HV-only configuration file is created, disabling all the HV channels (SSD request), a dedicated panel to ON/OFF all/single HV channel (not using the FSM mechanism!) can be implemented and opened from (as example) the monitoring zone in the FSM node Infrastructure HVPw.
Below the HMPID HV only panel is shown.
From the ‘FSM create configuration’ button in the FSM main control panel……
This facility provides the definition of the FSM Operation Mode (Include/Exclude Enable/Disable) configuration file for the entire detector hierarchy.
