Subject: Added defocus and other Hartmann sensor channels to EPICS and DAQ 

 I've added the following channels to the HWS softIoc in /cvs/cds/caltech/target/softIoc/HWS.db

 

 

EPICS and DAQ restart procedure

  1. Kill the existing softIoc. Use a "ps -e | grep softIoc" command to determine the process id.
  2. After editing the HWS.db file restart the softIoc with the following command:
[controls@hartmann softIoc]$  /cvs/opt/epics-3.14.10-RC2-i386/base/bin/linux-x86/softIoc -S  HWS.cmd &
[3] 11280
[controls@hartmann softIoc]$ dbLoadRecords "HWS.db"
iocInit
Starting iocInit

        3. Edit the /cvs/cds/caltech/chans/daq/C4TCS.ini file and kill the daqd process on fb1. It should restart automatically.

Done!
