Info in the Cyclone Processor Windows
On deneb's MiniDAQ desktop, check the three windows for the Cyclone
i960 processors: scoter, wigeon and gadwall:
At the start of a run, each Cyclone should locate any Rosies enabled
on it, and acknowledge this with the messages ``Rosie 0 present'' and
``Rosie 1 present.'' Verify that these messages exist and record
Each Cyclone checks the configuration information from Run Control and
the Cyclone Parameters table (accessed via Table Browser) at the start
of a run. Usually, illegal or inconsistent parameters are simply
reset with a warning, but a fatal error is forced, if no safe
resolution is possible. This happens, for example, if zero-suppressed
data is requested when no pedestal table is available. Record any
If Rosie errors occur during the run, these will be logged in the
Cyclone windows. Soft errors (e.g., event header length errors)
should not hang the run, but hard errors (e.g., Glink connection) can.
Record any such errors, noting which Cyclone board reported them.
Check for warning messages about illegal event length, illegal header
data, inconsistent FEE location information, etc.
