Setting Up the tpm Pad Monitor
The tpm pad monitor is available on deneb under the
staronl account via tpm.exe (or, more explicitly,
~/bin/tpm.exe One need no longer set permissions on
scaup to allow netfeed connections from other machines on
Release notes exist for tpm V3.2, and there is
obsolete infomation on the old pdm.
To set up Pad Monitor:
Bring up a terminal window (right mouse button: Programs -> Terminal).
- Find a display supporting X Windows and the 64K colors needed
by tpm; most PC's (like sirius) do; deneb
doesn't. Type setenv DISPLAY <display location>
. Enable other hosts at the display location: login to PC's and start
Exceed; login to Unix boxes and type xhost + in the console
In the deneb window, type tpm.exe; the pad monitor
should pop up.
From the File menu, select Open DAQ; the connection
window should pop up.
Enter the Port: 5000 (netfeed 0) or 5010 (netfeed 1);
and enter the Host: scaup.star.bnl.gov
Click Connect; an event should appear.
