 h1. What to do when something happens on shift 

 Shifter information for various problems that may be encountered on shift 

 h2. Shifter Instructions or What to Do on Shift 

 "What to do on-shift : MICE Shifter Training":http://micewww.pp.rl.ac.uk/documents/144 

 As part of your shift you should keep a record of people present, the main parameters of the 
 run and incidents that occurred during the run. A good example is shown in the  

 Guide "Guide to using the eLog for shift : attachment:Shifter_Elog_Guide.pdf shift":Shifter Elog Guide.pdf 

 Note that in the example given in this guide, the shifters were explicitly asked to check the temperature differentials 
 in the conventional magnets every half hour.  

 h2. How to launch and work with the Run Control 

 "Using the Run Control GUI [2015]":http://micewww.pp.rl.ac.uk/documents/135

 "The RATS daemon crashes":http://micewww.pp.rl.ac.uk/projects/operations/wiki/ShifterTrainingTarget 
 "A BPS error is encountered":http://micewww.pp.rl.ac.uk/projects/operations/wiki/ShifterTrainingTarget 

 h2. What if one of the MICE thin clients crashes? 

 Sometimes one the thin clients can crash like this https://micewww.pp.rl.ac.uk/elog/Shift+summary/150623_043853/MICETHIN02_error_230615.JPG 

 The current response to this is : 

 If the applications that had been running on the machine can just be opened elsewhere, then they should be, and an email 
 should be sent to the online expert (Paolo). If the process hasn't been released by the machine, and can't be run 
 in multiple instances (i.e. RunControl) then the SOC should be called, who will in turn probably call the online 
 expert.
