Cloning of chiara:/home/cvs underway

I returned today with a beefier USB-SATA adapter, which has an integrated 12 V supply for powering 3.5" disks. I used this to interface a new 6 TB 3.5" disk found in the FE supplies cabinet.

I decided to go with a larger disk and copy the full contents of chiara:/home/cds. Strictly, the FEs only strictly need the RTS executables in /home/cvs/rtcds and /home/cvs/rtapps. However, to independently develop models, the shared matlab binaries in /home/cvs/caltech/... also need to be exposed. And there may be others I've missed.

I began the clone around 12:30 pm today. To preserve bandwidth to the main disk, I am copying not the /home/cds disk directly, but rather its backup image at /media/40mBackup.

Set up of dedicated SimPlant host

Although not directly related to the FE testing, today I added a new machine to the test stand which will be dedicated to running sim models. Chris has developed a virtual cymac which we plan to run on this machine. It will provide a dedicated testbed for SimPlant and other development, and can host up to 10 user models.

I used one of the spare 12-core Supermicro servers from LLO, which I have named c1sim. I assigned it the IP address 192.168.113.93 on the Martian network. This machine will run in a self-contained way that will not depend on any 40m CDS services and also should not interfere with them. However, if there are concerns about having it present on the network, it can be moved to the outside-facing switch in the office area. It is not currently running any RTCDS processes.

Set-up was carried out via the following procedure:

  • Installed Debian 10.9 on an internal 480 GB SSD.
  • Installed cdssoft repos following Jamie's instructions.
  • Installed RTS and Docker dependencies:
    $ sudo apt install cpuset advligorts-mbuf-dkms advligorts-gpstime-dkms docker.io docker-compose
  • Configured scheduler for real-time operation:
    $ sudo /sbin/sysctl kernel.sched_rt_runtime_us = -1
  • Reserved 10 cores for RTS user models (plus one for IOP model) by adding the following line to /etc/default/grub:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="isolcpus=nohz,domain,1-11 nohz_full=1-11 tsc=reliable mce=off"
    followed by the commands:
    $ sudo update-grub
    $ sudo reboot now
  • Downloaded virtual cymac repo to /home/controls/docker-cymac.

I need to talk to Chris before I can take the setup further.
