The display machine should ---
Tests are usually run on daqman.star.bnl.gov, though
rcf.rhic.bnl.gov and sol.star.bnl.gov also work. In
principle, rsun00.rhic.bnl.gov, rmds03.rhic.bnl.gov, or
sirius.star.bnl.gov should work as well. Event sizes are about
1 MB, so a connection with good bandwidth is highly desireable.
- Support X Windows.
- Support 64K colors at high resolution (though a 256-color machine
- Support network logins, preferably using the ssh secure
From outside BNL, rsun00.rhic.bnl.gov and
rmds03.rhic.bnl.gov must be accessed via a gateway; the
rcf.rhic.bnl.gov gateway machine is for "general computing,"
and it is forbidden to run (even short) analysis jobs on it.
To run ttm and tpm, the machine should:
- Support the STAR environment, including Staf.
- Have ttm and tpm installed, or accessible by
mounting the relevant disk.
- Have ~100 MB free disk space available for data storage.
Two machine-dependent adaptations are often necessary:
gmake must appear in your path; if not, create a link, such as:
% ln -s /afs/rhic/@sys/opt/rhic/bin/make /export/home/bossingh/rdo_test/gmake
This is normally defined through setup of the CERN part of the STAR
environment, but isn't set up on daqman.
ttm.kumac should give a path to the MiniDAQ table definitions
(type_index.idl, type_structtbl.idl, etc.), such as:
tdm/table/cell/putvalue '/dui/ttm_par.tbltype_path' /export/home/bossingh/rdo_test/pams/trn/idl/
