SATAN can be coupled with GSI's current MBS data acquisition system. Listmode data may be received from a running experiment just as if they were read off disk or tape. No extra programming effort is required. However, an extra process, the so-called Remote Event Server has to be started on any of GSI's AIX or Linux computers which receives events from the frontend CPUs and distributes them to multiple clients. Hence it takes off load from the frontend data acquisition. The necessary steps are described in the following.
mbs>@startNote that the associated command script
start.scommust start the event stream server:
start task m_stream_serv
biori6p, and your frontend is r2-13, then the UNIX shell command:
mrevserv r2-13creates the remote event server on
nohup mrevserv r2-13 &runs the server in background and you get back your terminal window.
mrevservdoesn't run on your computer of choice you may contact the author, H.Goeringer@gsi.de

'::'distinguishes a node name from a file name. If everything is OK data are now accepted and delivered to your analysis routine.
