Subject: Plan for GigE cameras 

This afternoon Gautam and I assessed what to do about restoring the GigE camera software. Here's what I propose:

  • Set up one of the new rackmount Supermicros as a dedicated camera feed server
  • All GigE cameras on a local subnet connected to the second network interface (these Supermicros have two)
  • Put the SnapPy, pypylon, and pylon5 binaries on the shared network drive. These all have to be built from source.
  • All other dependencies can be gotten through the package managers, so create requirements files for yum and pip to automatically install these locally.

I've started resolving the many dependencies of this code on rossa. The idea is to get a working environment on one workstation, then generate requirements files that can be used to set up the rest of the machines. I believe the dependencies have all been installed. However, many of the packages are newer versions than before, and this seems to have broken SnapPy. I'll continue debugging this tomorrow.
