Subject: 1X7 and 1X6 work 

[Tega, Paco, JC]


We moved the GPS network time server and the Frequency distribution amplifier from 1X7 to 1X6 and the PEM AA, ADC adapter and Martian network switch from 1X6 to 1X7. Also mounted the dolphin IX switch at the rear of 1X7 together with the DAQ and martian switches. This cleared up enough space to mount all the front-ends, however, we found that the mounting brackets for the frontends do not fit in the 1X7 rack, so I have decided to mount them on the upper part of the test stand for now while we come up with a fix for this problem. Attachments 1 to 3 show the current state of racks 1X6, 1X7 and the teststand.

Plan for the remainder of the week

Tuesday

  • Setup the 6 new front-ends to boot off the FB1 clone.
  • Test PCIe I/O cables by connecting them btw the front-ends and teststand I/O chassis one at a time to ensure they work
  • Then lay the fiber cables to the various I/O chassis.

Wednesday

  • Migrate the current models on the 6 front-ends to the new system.
  • Replace RFM IPC parts with dolphin IPC parts in c1rfm model running c1sus machine
  • Replace the RFM parts in c1iscex and c1iscey models
  • Drop c1daf and c1oaf models from c1isc machine, since the front-ends have only have 6 cores
  • Build and install models

Thursday [CAN I GET THE IFO ON THIS DAY PLEASE?]

  • Complete any remaining model work
  • Connect all I/O chassis to their respective (new) front-end and see if we can start the models (Need to think of a safe way to do this. Should we disconnect coil drivers b4 starting the models?)

Friday

  • Tie-up any loose ends
