Setting up a system configuration data set
This is a basic guide to setting up a system configuration from scratch ...
1. run bldMNSN
to setup distribution directory structure
2. run assimilate -version 207 -sysName mySystemName
-version points to the version of firmware that is in the hardware -sysName points to a common directory of form /MNSN/soft_dev/cfg/_mySystemName/.dscFiles and /MNSN/soft_dev/cfg/_mySystemName/.eep which are used to contain the Torrent specific configuration files
3. run arrayDesc -type genericdetectorType -arrayID thisDetectorName -fpName mySystemName for as many detectors that make up the focal plane, changing the -arrayID value for each one.
-type identifies a generic detector description currently available types are e2v44-82 e2v231-84 lbnl234 STA1042 -arrayID is the unique identifier for this detector, usually the serial number or a positional key -fpName is the system configuration name
Format of attributes set by the sysName.ini file created by collector
see file big-boy:/MNSN/soft_dev/Torrent_Text/sysName.ini.tmplt
The values in the template file will be replaced by the "collector" with values read from the system TSM eeprom
Format of attributes set by the sysName_DefaultSetup.mod file created by collector
see file big-boy:/MNSN/soft_dev/Torrent_Text/sysName_DefaultSetup.mod.tmplt
The values in the template file will be replaced by the "collector" with values read from the system TSM eeprom.
