level2AcceptQue State Diagram

The Level 2 Accpet Que object approximates the time an event will spend in L3/4 analysis, returning results to the trigInterFace based on expected average analysis times. This allows for correct token management.

Some percentage of the events WAIT until they reach the tape que, while a larger number WAIT until they are rejected at L4 with the remainder WAITING for rejection at L3. These percentages are chosen based on the the approximate acceptance of 1 TPC and 5 EMC events per second. Variations of these percentages are input values to the simulation.

In Future Additions to the model Level 3 and Level 4 objects will be implemented to better represent the current STAR Trigger/Daq hardware.
