  • Leak sensors and drip trays
  • "All Off" controls misbehaviour
  • Water, temperatures and MPS water flows in ALH (CAM)
    • Magnets trips should be reported in the ALH (Pierrick)
Decay Solenoid

  • Boosted air (MBC)
    • Trench sensor (awaiting read-out)
    • Compressor sensor
    • Backup compressor for DS
  • Linde PC install: awaiting validation and IOC (DK) - licence issues
  • ALH/archiver/SM corrections #1710 (CAM)?
  • BLOC training and experience (Henry)
  • BLOC roster

Detectors, Monitoring and Control

  • MDR7: TOF2: current trip in TOF2_103 - request MB feedback
  • Monitoring GUI for the tracker volumes needs to be added in the AppLauncher (Pierrick)
  • Issue with the EMR DAQ (restarted the crate) - future?: is there an usable spare? (Francois)
  • CDB vs Spreadsheet (All) -- resolved to remove spreadsheet by end of user run-
  • Alarm Handlers and State Machines: is it ready?
  • Confirm ISIS PVs and applications OK in MLCR (CAM/Steve) Action on Steve to add to run preparation list
  • John Cobb list. CW and PMH to refine
  • SSH lockout during running. - PMH

Cooling Channel

  • "Commissioning Manager" and planning of that process
  • RA, Operating Instructions, etc.
    • Progress on SS procedure documentation (FC done, Need SS now)
  • Install FC monitoring in ISIS MCR (Pierrick/Paolo) GUI exists - need sound (new nuc)?
  • Hall probe improvement.
    • strain relief
    • windows machines - MU plus AK
    • 1 dead, 1 wrong
  • There needs to be someone on call for the SC magnets. It will be a combination between Josef/Mark/MC/PMH
  • Local cooling for FC high pressure hoses
  • FC quench logging. - New processor JW (DL) has software lead.

Hall and infrastructure

  • PPS issues #1818 ?
  • All valid PPS meshing and gates in place
  • camhall03 inverted
  • Shared services/environment (water, air, computing/networking, UPS ( #1213 ) in Alarm Handler and in Archiver (CAM)
  • *roof chiller interface with C&M
    • Neutron Monitor etc. must alarm on a detected fault as well as on high reading
    • Ambient temperature readings and alarms PMH
  • Post-MDR7: Aircon unit assignment incorrect in monitoring GUI: 2 and 3 are swapped check - PMH.
  • Aircon unit 4 has some mechanical issue - occasional squealing from fan belt: planned intervention during the shutdown (John G.)
  • Install hall air conditioner #5.
  • Repair hall air conditioner #4.
  • Re-fill hall air-conditioner #1.

General Computing

  • Fix DNS: servers give inconsistent results - DR
  • Heartbeat vs. Nagios and alarms - PF.
  • Archiver not usable from Remote Monitoring Room (need to squeeze into MLCR for ad-hoc queries) PMH.
  • OnMon/OnRec error messages all need timestamps, to allow correlation (Durga)
  • Data Quality Flags #1383 (All, Janusz, Pierrick)
  • Reco: Data Quality flags #1585 (Durga, Pierrick)
  • miceraid5 disk: get in touch with Yordan on self-cleanup (clean with cron/tmpwatch everything untouched for over a month). (Yordan)
  • CDB: do we have all necessary information in the CDB
    • Get Target Depth, Target Delay, Total Beam Loss to read out (currently 0 or blank) - not appropriate for CDB? (Durga/Pierrick)
    • Need something monitoring that this info is live and available in the first place
  • CDB viewer needs to have the cooling channel magnets and absorber status. Action: (Janusz)
  • Implement a search function for the CDB (Someone) - not high priority.
  • File Compactor:
  • Automated RECO mover:
    • Automated mover and concentrator running
  • Hardware token monitoring and alarms #1860
    • On-site response


  • Ensure up-to-date documentation and checklists in MLCR: - SB.
    • especially Control Room Operations which is incomplete and out of date
    • need Alarm Handler training (screenshots, etc.?) and File Compactor
  • New elements
    • Whatever is needed for the SS and FC
    • Alarm Handler
  • Permissive list of MOM-authorisable actions - in progress-
