U.S. ATLAS TDAQFY06 M&O Planning A.J. Lankford UC Irvine
Overview of FY06 TDAQ M&O Activity • TDAQ Construction Project continues beyond CD-4A. • Most hardware acquisition and installation in FY06-07 • Much software development, esp. HLT, continues. • TDAQ M&O activity overlaps with Construction in FY06-07. • Construction Project ‘labor’ is ramping down quickly. • FY06 is first year of ‘significant’ M&O activity. • FY06 M&O activity focuses on DAQ & HLT Infrastructure s/w. • TDAQ M&O activities can be classified as: • Hardware commissioning • Hardware maintenance • Software commissioning • Software maintenance • Operations • Detector support • TDAQ support
FY06 Hardware Commissioning & Maintenance • Hardware Commissioning • Complete commissioning of Pre-series system • 10% scale of final system w/ components of final specs • Commission final RoI Builder hardware • Commission DAQ infrastructure • Network infrastructure (large central switch)- connectivity to ROS’s • DAQ processors - SFI’s, SFO’s, L2SV’s, pROS’s • Racks & rack instrumentation • Initial complement of HLT processors - late in year • Hardware Maintenance • Pre-series system • RoI Builder • DAQ infrastructure • Test beds - particularly “performance testbed”
Software Development: Transition to M&O • The Combined Test Beam Release of HLT/DAQ software was nearly complete with respect to DAQ and HLT Infrastructure functionality. • This release was commissioned, operated, and maintained for the 2004 ATLAS CTB Run. • Subsequent development of this HLT/DAQ software consists of: • Added functionality (e.g. fault tolerance & error recovery) • HLT selection algorithm development • Refinement of existing code based upon CTB and subsequent experience and feedback • Development of added functionality and algorithms is Construction Project activity. • Refinement of existing code is M&O activity. • Starting in FY05, software development is increasingly M&O. • After first physics run, software development will be entirely M&O.
FY06 Software Commissioning & Maintenance • Software Commissioning • Commissioning of new functionality • Examples of U.S. activity: • LVL2 Supervisor and RoI Builder software • DAQ software • Monitoring • Inter-process communication and Information Services • Message passing • HLT Infrastructure software • Run Control & Supervision • LVL2 Steering • EF Dataflow • Software Maintenance • Maintenance of above (bug fixes, releases, TDAQ/Offline consistency) • Incorporate new functionality based upon experience
FY06 Operations • Operating DAQ infrastructure in USA15 and SDX1 in support of Detector (and TDAQ) commissioning • Network administration • System administration (DAQ and HLT computer systems) • TDAQ support teams will start rotations once level of activity at Point 1 demands
FY06 Detector & TDAQ Support • Detector Support • ROD Crate DAQ maintenance and support • Support for: • Detector-specific software development, e.g.: • ROD software • Online histogramming & monitoring • Detector commissioning • Detector calibrations (and test beam runs ?) • TDAQ Support • Support development & commissioning of other TDAQ subsystems • Examples: • SRB support for commissioning LVL1 trigger subsystems • Integration of HLT vertical slices • Network support for Dataflow performance tests
FY05 M&O Activities • Hardware Commissioning • Pre-series system, including pre-series RoIB • DCS for TDAQ racks • Planning for TDAQ infrastructure commissioning • Hardware Maintenance • Set up RoIB test bench • TDAQ test bed maintenance & administration • Software Commissioning • Releases, release testing, release testing procedures • Software Maintenance • Maintain code authored by U.S. members, e.g.: • Message passing, Information Services, Online Histogramming, • HLT Steering, HLT Control, Monitoring • Synchronization of releases with Offline • Adapt/port code to new compiler and new CERN Linux
FY05 M&O Activities – p. 2 • Operations • Completion of CTB run • System administration planning • Detector Support • TileCal beam test • Monitoring • Support of production and simulation of test beam data • TDAQ Support • Support integration with RoIB in CTB • Support of HLT algorithm integration • Test bed setup in UK, Dubna
M&O Planning Methodology/History • Experience in FY04, particularly CTB, indicated prior estimates of M&O effort were low. • New bottoms-up estimate of M&O effort in Jan. 2005 • By “new kid on block”, w/ input from all involved • Based on effort needed for commissioning and ongoing maintenance of hardware & software components delivered by U.S. • Constructed matrix of effort per component vs. time • Estimate larger than prior estimate => add Management Reserve • MR added covers ~1/2 of increase in estimate • Checked total estimate w/ 20% of top-down estimate for ATLAS • Coordinated w/ TDAQ Management Team

FY06 Management Reserve • FY06 MR priorities (in rough priority order): • Hardware commissioning: 0.25 => 0.5 FTE • Software commissioning: 0.25 => 0.5 FTE • Hardware maintenance: 0.5 => 1 FTE • TDAQ support: 0.4 => 1 FTE • Operations: 0.3 => 1 FTE • Detector support: 1 => 2 FTE • SRB: 1 => 1 FTE; Software maintenance: 2.5 => 2.5 FTE • Total: 6.2 => 9.5 FTE ~458k$ • Impact of MR: • Improved readiness of TDAQ for cosmics and beam • Improved efficiency of detector commissioning • Improved tools for detector monitoring • More efficient HLT/DAQ operations • Improved efficiency of operations due to s/w enhancements • Without MR funds, either or both: • Reduced DAQ support for detectors, with delays in detector commissioning • Reduced effort on ongoing HLT/DAQ development, with delays in completing critical software
