R. Bayes, J. Greis, C. Heidt, J. Nugent, C. Pidcott, D. Rajaram, M.Savic
A. Dobbs needs to fix formatting and email those who need to provide updates.
Data analysable flags for each detector now to be implemented in post-processing, info then shown in CDB. D. Rajaram can implement, but detector groups still need to specify their 'good' or 'bad' criteria.
Loads of new work to go in to trunk. F. Drielsma will give a presentation soon when code is ready.
Coordinate flip issues seem to be fixed! Need to do more checking but looking good. Seem to see momentum flips in final track fit for straights however (no corresponding study for helical yet) - referring to C. Hunt.
J. Greis blocked by tracker flip issue. Should be able to make quick progress when fix is in place. JG also waiting on C. Pidcott test updates, which should be done soon.
When various blocks are out of the way shouldn't been too long, depending on what surprises appear, to being able to do performance analyses on global tracking. Estimate time of somewhere in January.
DR has profiled code during MC running. Slowness mainly due to GEANT4 stuff. Considerable job to fix. Manpower issues.
Bug in downloading cooling channel currents from CDB. R. Bayes expecting to fix merged within a week (targeted for next release).
Y. Karadzhov now leading effort on new OnlineRecon system
Batch Offline Reconstruction¶
MC GRID running needs a champion. Possibly D. Maletic. M. Savic will talk to him, D. Rajaram and A. Dobbs the contact points.
OfflineRecon machine now running MAUS-v1.3.0.
SOAP error probably arises from hack on the server which restarts PostGres (due to a memory leak). When PostGres is restarting get the SOAP. Could get each MAUS cdb call to also try a different slave if communication fails. NO manpower to implement the fix at present.
See MC notes.
Lots of progress on event viewer development. See issue #1799. M. Savic still seeing problems when trying to get spacepoints to match detector positions and PR fit output (trackpoints now seem ok). Wait until tracker fixes go in, then look again, and use spacepoint get_global_position method. A. Dobbs trying to get straight pr track parameters to output in global coords too.
