Description of Shift:

run spill time comment
15034 Ongoing cosmic run from previous shift

We have had some SDAQ and pipeline problems, all
probably related to the fact that we are using a
fake spill signal.

pipeline: tried to reset it, but upon launching of
pipe.tcl (on atev2 as user da_ktev3) I get a
warning winda saying that running the script as
da_ktev3 could cause serious trouble, so I just
leave it alone to it's own devices.

SDAQ alarm: probably a fake spill signal
problem... Ashkan should revise the status when
he gets in.

2:28 Got a coupla ktevana errors. Had to run kfrend
twice before I could silence Elliot. But then
again, I'm fortunate that Val hasn't "panicked"
so far.

3:30 Ashkan Replaces Miguel for the rest of the shift.
SDAQ process which require info from the EPICURE
and/or spill signal are down. The fake spill
signal is not doing SDAQ any good. In this
situation one can ignore errors from 'sad' and
'ktscaler' process. Fresh start wouldn't help.

3:55 A trigger error, KFREND resolves.

6:15 SDAQ is getting the correct spill number all
of a sudden! All process up and running.

6:18 Recovering from TeV runII studies, preparing for
shut down. No beam to fixed target till this
