    Reply  Thu Aug 18 08:17:16 2016, Steve, Update, SUS, wire clamping preparation 800P.jpg

The wire inprints were removed by 800P grain paper [Norton 73568] The SS bridge block now has an undesireble vally in the wire location.

The sus bridges were soaked in acetone over night and sonicated to remove residual sand paper.



I just put in the following into the air bake oven for a 12 hour, 70C bake:

  • ETMX and ETMY cages (with sanded suspension blocks loosely tightened for now, we will tighten them after the bake)
  • 13 new wire clamps that were recently made by the shop
  • 7 lengths of suspension wire (since the new wire is unlikely to arrive for another 2 weeks). This should be sufficient in case we overtighten the wire clamps a couple of times and the wire snaps.

I put these in at 10.30pm. So the oven will be turned off at 10.30am tomorrow morning. The oven temperature seems stable in the region 70-80 C (there is no temperature control except for the in built oven control, I just adjusted the dial till I found the oven remains at ~70C.

Tomorrow, we will look to put on first contact onto the ETMs, and then get about to re-suspending them.

Ruby wire standoff 1 mm od. with V-groove test cut. SOS sus wire 0.0017" od. is in the background.

It looks almost OK, but we need a bit sharper picture for both the groove and thw wire.

Entry  Fri Sep 25 11:08:33 2015, Steve, Update, SUS, wire standoffs wireStandOff_SOS.PDF

Our last effort to change the existing Al-6061 wire standoffs was at April 2012

We requested sapphire and/or ruby materials with smaller R at the bottom of the  groove. Groove polishing was asked for.

Insaco Inc. quote 84740 as " best effort " NO POLISHING.  The groove cut to be with eximer laser.

Jeff Lewis as 9-12-2012:  the LIGO sapphire prisms grooves were NOT POLISHED  but Resonatics used the corner of a rasor blade to scrape off the

ablated material wich was redeposited in and around the grooves.

Entry  Wed Jul 8 11:13:36 2009, Alberto, Omnistructure, Computers, wireless router disconnected 

Once again, this morning I found the wireless router disconnected from the LAN cable. No martian WiFi was available.

I wonder who is been doing that and for what reason.

    Reply  Wed Dec 13 09:49:23 2017, johannes, Update, ASS, wiring diagram 1Y9.pdf

I attached a wiring schematic from the slow DAQ to the eurocrate modules. Of these, pins 1-32 (or 1A-16C) and pins 33-64 (17A-32C) are on separate DSub connectors. Therefore the easiest solution is to splice the slow DIO channels into the existing breakouts so we can proceed with the transition. This will still remove a lot of the current cable salad. For the YEND we can start thinking about a more elegant solution (For example a connector on the front panel of the Acromag chassis for the fast DIO) now that the problem is better defined.

Here is a wiring diagram which shows how IP-POS (new official name is IB_POS) is connected.

Another thing we have to remember is : at some point we will also connect some more QPDs (e.g. POX, POY, AS, REFL and POP) in the same way.

They will also be acquired by the same slow machine : c1iscaux.


Quote from #4704

IP_POS is back. 

Hopefully I will make a simple wiring diagram such that we will never forget the connections.

Just FYI, the 3113 is a 12-bit ADC, so we won't get very good resolution out of these. We should get one of those purple boxes.

Also, I corresponded some with Dave Barker. The 40m Wiki at LHO is down because of disk errors. He's working on it and will let us know. But suggests that we move it to Caltech since he'll turn the box off at the end of the year.

Mon May 16 13:57:49 2011    Wiki is back up.

This morning I came in the 40m then found
1) c1auxex was throwing out the same errors as recently seen.
2) c1iscex processes had errors which persisted even after the mx stream reset.

1) c1auxex - fixed

Tried telnet c1auxex => rejected by the host

Went down to the south end. Power cycled the target. Came back to the control room.
=> Confirmed the epics read/write is back.
Burtrestored the epics vars for the target to the snapshot on 31th Oct at 5:07.

2) c1iscex - still not fixed

ssh c1iscex
rtcds restart all
=> c1x01 is still in red. 
Followed the procedure on the elog entry 9007. => Still the same error.

At least c1x01 is stalled. Here is the status.

Sync Source is TDS.
C1:DAQ-DC0_C1X01_STATUS is 0x2bad.
C1:DAQ-DC0_C1X01_CRC_SUM stays 0.
The screen shot is attached.

Entry  Fri Jan 27 19:40:03 2017, rana, Metaphysics, elog, word wrapping & large images 

"Why does the word wrapping not work in our browsers with ELOG?" I sometimes wonder. Some of the elogs are fine, but often the 40m one has the text run off the page.

I found that this is due to people uploading HUGE images. If you need to do this, just use the shrink feature in the elog compose window so that we only have to see the thumbnail at first. Otherwise your 12 MP images will make it hard to read everyone else's entries.

I never actually figured out exactly what was wrong in entry 2162, but I managed to circumvent by changing the time sequence of events in the up script, moving the big gain increases in the common mode servo to the end of the script.  So the IFO can be locked again.

Entry  Mon Sep 21 15:22:19 2015, jamie, Update, DAQ, working on new fb replacement 

I've been putting together a new machine that Rolf got for us as a replacement for fb.

I've installed and configured the OS, and compiled daqd and the necessary supporting software.  I want to try acquiring data with it.  This will require removing the current/old fb from the DAQ network, and adding the new machine.  It should be able to be done relatively non-invasively, such that none of the front end configuration needs to be adjusted, and the old fb can be put back in place easily.

If the test is successfully, then I'll push ahead with the rest of the replacement (such as either moving or copying the /frames RAID to the new machine).

I will do this work in the early AM tomorrow, September 22, 2015.

Entry  Sat May 4 00:21:00 2013, rana, Configuration, Computers, workstation updates 

 Koji and I went into "Update Manager" on several of the Ubuntu workstations and unselected the "check for updates" button. This is to prevent the machines from asking to be upgraded so frequently - I am concerned that someone might be tempted to upgrade the workstations to Ubuntu 12.

We didn't catch them all, so please take a moment to check that this is the case on all the laptops you are using and make it so. We can then apply the updates in a controlled manner once every few months.

    Reply  Mon Nov 21 15:16:12 2022, Tega, Update, CDS, workstation upgrade 

We are currently working on donatella workstation upgrade, which we are calling donatellaclone for now. After installing Debian 11, we install the cds conda environment. This takes care of most of the requisite packages except `dataviewer` and `burtgooey`.

To resolve the machines on the martian network, we do the following:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install resolvconf

then create or open the file '/etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head'

sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/head

and add the following



search martian



The installation binary for burtgooey `/usr/bin/burtgooey` is a symoblic link that points to `/ligo/apps/epics-3.14.10/extensions/bin/linux-x86_64/burtgooey`. To get this working, we need to install some requisite libraries, see below:

sudo apt-get install libxm4

wget -c http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/glibc/multiarch-support_2.27-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i multiarch-support_2.27-3ubuntu1_amd64.deb

wget -c http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/multiarch-support_2.28-10+deb10u1_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i multiarch-support_2.28-10+deb10u1_amd64.deb

wget -c https://apt.ligo-wa.caltech.edu:8443/debian/pool/bullseye/libxp6/libxp6_1.0.2-2_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i libxp6_1.0.2-2_amd64.deb

wget -c http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/r/readline6/libreadline6_6.3-8+b3_amd64.deb

sudo apt-get install -y libtinfo5

sudo dpkg -i libreadline6_6.3-8+b3_amd64.deb

sudo add-apt-repository universe

sudo apt-get install libncurses5



dataviewer depends on 'grace' and 'libmotif-dev' which are not installed automatically and results in a broken initial installation, so do the following:

sudo apt-get install dataviewer

sudo apt --fix-broken install


Entry  Thu Sep 29 03:43:20 2011, kiwamu, Update, ASC, wrong channel assignment on IPPOS 

The channels for IPPOS had been assigned in a wrong way.

Because of this, C1:ASC-IP_POS_X_Calc corresponds to the actual vertical motion and C1:ASC-IP_POS_Y_Calc is for the horizontal motion.

We should fix the database file to get the correct vertical/horizontal corrdinate.

Today Steve was working around the 1X5 rack to strain relief the cable jungles and the jungle is now getting less jungle.

During the work he disconnected and reconnected some cables.

So for a doublecheck I checked all the suspensions to see if the suspensions are still healthy or not.

Aha, then I found a mistake.


See the pictures below. It's a very subtle difference. This wrong connection prevented MC1 and MC3 from damping.

Yend seismometer isolation kit (elog 8461) hosts Guralp seismometer. I made a cable for inside connection, assembled the kit and relocated the instrument from its previous position at the yend inside the kit.

Seismometer is connected to the readout box and running.


 Xend internal cabling and external connector is ready. We are waiting for seismometer from Gyro lab. We still need to fix the pot with clamps after we put the instrument in.

We also need a long cable from Xend to the guralp readout box.

We aligned and locked Y arm for green:

  • installed camera on PSL to monitor green transmission
  • aligned green path on the ETMY table to see the beam on the PSL camera
  • misaligned ETMY and aligned ITMY to see reflected beam on REFL PD
  • installed green transmission PD on PSL
  • aligned ETMY and locked YARM to 00 mode

I've switched error channel cable to output monitor. Whitening filter is need for scattering measurements.

As a CM slow path test I locked free swinging yarm by actuating on MC length with bandwidth of 200 Hz. Crossover with AO is not stable so far.

I used xarm as an ool frequency noise sensor. MC2 violin mode is at 645 Hz, I have added a notch filter to LSC-MC2 bank.

Entry  Mon Apr 19 13:23:03 2010, josephb, Configuration, Computers, yum update fixed on control room machines 

I went to Ottavia, and tried running yum update.  It was having dependancy issues with mjpegtools, which was a rpmforge provided package.  In order to get it to update, I moved the rpmforge priority above (a lower number) that of epel ( epel -> 20 from 10, rpmforge -> 10 to 20).  This resolved the problem and the updates proceeded (all 434 of them). yum update on Ottavia now reports nothing needs to be done.

I went to Rosalba and found rpmfusion repositories enabled.  The only one of the 3 repositories in each file enabled was the first one.

I then added priority listing to all the repositories on Rosalba.  I set CentOS-Base and related to priority=1.  I set CentOS-Media.repo priority to 1 (although it is disabled - just to head off future problems). I set all epel related to priorities to 20. I set all rpmforge related priorities to 10.  I set all rpmfusion related priorities to 30, and left the first repo in rpmfusion-free-updates and rpmfusion-nonfree-updates were enabled.  All other rpmfusion testing repositories were disabled by me.

I then had to by hand downgrade expat to expat-1.95.8-8.3.el5_4.2.x86_64 (the rpmforge version).  I also removed and reinstalled x264.x86_64.  Lastly I removed and reinstalled lyx. yum update was then run and completed successfully.

I installed yum-priorities on Allegra and made all CentOS-Base repositories priority 1. I similarly made the still disabled CentOS-Media priority 1.  I made all epel related repos priority 20.  I made all lscsoft repos priority=50 (not sure why its on Allegra and none of the other ones).  I made all rpmforge priorities 10.  I then ran "yum update" which updated 416 packages.


So basically all the Centos control room machines are now using the following order for repositories:

CentOS-Base > rpmforge > epel > (rpmfusion - rosalba only) > lscsoft (allegra only)

I'm not sure if rpmfusion and lscsoft are necessary, but I've left them for now.  This should mean "yum update" will have far fewer problems in the future.


Entry  Thu Mar 5 02:24:19 2009, rana, Configuration, Computers, yum.repos.d 

I added the following repos which I found on allegra to megatron and then did a 'yum install sshfs' on both machines:

total 28
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  428 Feb 12 16:47 rpmforge.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  684 Feb 12 16:47 mirrors-rpmforge
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1054 Feb 12 16:47 epel-testing.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  954 Feb 12 16:47 epel.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  626 Feb 12 16:47 CentOS-Media.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1869 Feb 12 16:47 CentOS-Base.repo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  179 Feb 12 16:47 adobe-linux-i386.repo

This also required me to import the rpmforge GPG key:

sudo rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt

For several of the channels on the PEM ADCU, zeros are occuring at the same time. Does anyone know why that might happen or how to fix it?

Added zita to the martian host table, and configured his network accordingly:

 I installed 'nfs-client' on zita (the StripTool terminal). It now has mounted all the shared disks, but still can't do StripTool since its a 32-bit machine and our StripTool is 64.

I'll finish the rest of the config to turn it into a full-fledged workstation tomorrow.

Here is a comparison of the response of various DoFs in our various RFPD sensors for two different CARM offsets. Even in the case of the smaller CARM offset of ~1kHz, we are several linewidths away from the resonance. Need to do some finesse modeling to make any meaningful statement about this - why is the CARM response in REFL11 apparently smaller for the smaller CARM offset?

If you mistrust my signal processing, the GPS times for which I ran the sensing lines are:

CARM offset = ~30kHz (arm transmission <0.02) --- 1257064777+5min

CARM offset = ~1kHz (arm transmission ~5) --- 1257065566+5min



There seems to be stronger-than-expected coupling between CARM and the 3f sensors.
