Safety and electrical systemsImpact on ALICE • LHC evacuation tests (7/12 after 18:00 and 24/12 tbc) • no access UX25 • EN/EL: interruption on auto-transfert network (9/12 from 07:00 till 07:05): • all wall outlets will be interrupted • including all non-UPS outlets in the ACR (so essentially all WRs) • including outlets SXL2, offices and barracks • non-UPS power for the detector cooling plants will be interrupted • power to all gas systems will be interrupted • the UPS powered systems will not be affected, but will run on batteries for the 2 min. interruption • the electronics racks in the cavern and CRs will not be affected. • See • DSS modification (13/1) • Will stop the full DSS, trigger all interlocks, including stopping power to all racks • EN/EL: AUG Test (20/1) (Arrêt Urgence General – General Emergency Stop) • Major electrical perturbation. Also ACR affected ALICE planning meeting

  15. DAQ upgrade plans • 21st Dec PM till the 04th Jan included • The DAQ will be OFF during the CERN closure. • The ACR PCs will be left ON to give access to the DCS for the detectors teams who need it. • 5th to the 11th of January included • DAQ restarted on the first working day for 1 week. The DAQ will be switched ON with the present version of all software. Allow a quick commissioning after the installation of new detector modules or the intervention on existing detectors. • 12th to the 23rd Jan included • The DAQ will be OFF during the cooling interruption at P2. • DAQ renovated (see TB December) • 24th January • The DAQ will be ON again. It will run under SLC5 64 bits unless there would be an unexpected key problem. • The electronic logbook will remain available during the whole period. When the DAQ will be OFF, it will be running in the DAQ lab in Meyrin. There will be a few hours of interruption to switch from P2 to Meyrin and back. ALICE planning meeting Pierre/Uli

  16. DCS plans Baseline: DCS will be operational all times where technically possible With ‘best effort’ support With access restrictions during CERN End-of-Year closure (22/12 – 4/1) Many activities and upgrades are planned Will be coordinated with individual detectors to minimise impact For central systems, as much as possible in shadow of other perturbations (e.g. cooling stop) Perturbations (e.g. for reboots etc.) cannot be excluded Detectors are invited to communicate ‘critical periods’, with services needed Will try to cater for detector needs as much as possible Known perturbations: Tue 7/12 10:00 – 12:00, interruptions of the GPN link to/from P2 Upgrade of router, test impact on ALICE Wk50 (13-17/12) – major updates to all PC (many perturbations to be expected) 12/1 – 21/1 (cooling stop), only minimal central services. All detector DCS switched off, except for special requests and if cooling power allows More detailed planning at weekly and daily meetings ALICE planning meeting André / Peter

  17. DCS plans (details) Wk 50 Mon 13/12 – Fri 17/12 (daytime): SW upgrades and patches to all systems (Operating system and PVSS) Delayed/extended due to problems with automatic PVSS upgrade procedure (several manual operations needed) Systems unavailable for short (~hrs) periods, frequent reboots Support to detectors restarting/testing their systems after upgrades Detectors shall test functionality as much as possible Wk 51 Contingency for system upgrades Support to detectors restarting/testing their systems after upgrades Detectors shall test functionality as much as possible Tue 21/12 PM: Limit access to DCS cluster during end-of-year closure Register with your SRC if you require access (see message Peter 2/12/2010) Wk 52 – Wk 01 Only ‘best effort’ support during CERN closure Wk 02 Wed 12/01 – (cooling intervention) shutdown of detector systems except special requests, within limits of cooling power ALICE planning meeting André / Peter
