  11410   Tue Jul 14 13:55:28 2015 jamieUpdateCDSrunning test on daqd, please leave undisturbed

I'm running a test with daqd right now, so please do not disturb for the moment.

I'm temporarily writing frames into a tempfs, which is a filesystem that exists purely in memory.  There should be ZERO IO contention for this filesystem, so if the daqd failures are due to IO then all problems should disappear.  If they don't, then we're dealing with some other problem.

There will be no data saved during this period.

  11413   Tue Jul 14 17:06:00 2015 jamieUpdateCDSrunning test on daqd, please leave undisturbed

I have reverted daqd to the previous configuration, so that it's writing frames to disk.  It's still showing instability.

  6201   Sun Jan 15 12:18:00 2012 DenUpdateAdaptive Filteringrunning time

 In order to figure out what downsampling ratio we can take, we need to determine the running time of the fxlms_filter() function. If the filter length is equal to 5000, downsampling ratio is equal to 1, number of witness channels is 1 then with ordinary compilation without speed optimization one call runs for 0.054 ms (milli seconds). The test was done on the 3 GHz Intel processor. With speed optimization flags the situation is better

-O1 0.014 ms, -O3 0.012 ms

However, Alex said that speed optimization is not supported at RCG because it produce unstable execution time for some reason. However, by default the kernel should optimize for size -Os. With this flag the running time is also 0.012 ms. We should check if the front-end machine compilers indeed use -Os flag during the compilation and also play with speed optimization flags. Flags -O3 and -Os together might also give some speed improvement.

But for now we have time value = 0.012 ms as running time for 5000 coefficient filter, 1 witness channel and downsample ratio = 1. Now, we need to check how this time is scaled if we change the parameters.

5000 cofficients - 0.012 ms

10000 coefficients - 0.024 ms

15000 coefficients - 0.036 ms

20000 coefficients - 0.048 ms

We can see that filter length scaling is linear. Now we check downsampling ratio

ratio=1 - 0.048 ms

ratio=2 - 0.024 ms

ratio=4 - 0.012 ms

Running time on the dependance of downsample ratio is also linear as well as on the dependence of the number of witness channels and degrees of freedom. 

If we want to filter 8 DOF with approximately 10 witness channels for each DOF, then 5000 length filter will make 1 cycle for ~1 ms, that is good enough to make the downsample ratio equal to 4.

Things get a little bit complicated when the code is called for the first time. Some time is taken to initialize variables and check input data. As a result the running time of the first cycle is ~0.1 ms for 1 DOF that is ~10 times more then running time of an ordinary cycle. This effect takes place at this moment when one presses reset button in the c1oaf model - the filter becomes suspended for a while. To solve this problem the initialization should be divided by several (~10) parts.

This is long overdue, but our burt files for SDF now live in the LIGO userapps SVN, as they should.

The canonical files live in places like /opt/rtcds/userapps/release/cds/c1/burtfiles/c1x01_safe.snap and are symlinked to files like /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/target/c1x01/c1x01epics/burt/safe.snap

 We had our annual safety inspection today.  Our SOPs are outdated. The full list of needed correction will be posted tomorrow.

 

The most useful found was that the ITMX-ISCT ac power is coming  from 1Y1 rack. This should actually go to 1Y2 LSC rack ?

 Please test this so we do not create more ground loops.
