That's it! The run control GUI will show the number of MC events generated.
The events are archived automatically to tape.
Starting the DAQ gui for MC production
In hb-cr10 in the hbshift account execute the command /online/ONLINE/pro/Linux_intel/bin/start_mc)
Configuring the DAQ for running MC production
Click on "New Run". The run configuration
window will pop up. In the list of run types click
on "MC". The MC menu pops up. Select one of the items in the list and press OK. You get
a yellow window with the MC generation configuration (process code, geometry version
and wire mask), and the statistics to be produced
corresponding to the item you have selected.
Dismiss this window and
click OK at the bottom of the run configuration window. Click OK in the
window that pops us asking you if you are ready to start the run. The run
control GUI will show up.
Starting the run
In the run control window press the "Menu" button and then "create". All the processes
will be created in the same way as in a normal data taking or reprocessing run. When the
system is in the INITIALIZED state, press "Ready" to bring the system to
the READY state and then press "Start" to bring the system to the RUN state.
The run control system counts automatically the statistics already produced for each configuration.
If you stop the MC run before reaching the desired statistics, next time you
restart the MC production with the same configuration only the remaining statistics will be produced.
