yes/no
BIG BROTHER COMPUTER STATUS All 3Ware/conn alarms off?



yes/no
For infrastructure machines: all alarms off?



yes/no
If the beam is ON and any of the above answers is NO (or an every-two-hour quantity is out of tolerance), email the relevant expert.
* If B:BPL5MA < 425 W and highest fractional loss is less than 75% for more than 30 minutes, call the MCR. Identify yourself as the
MiniBooNE shifter and ask if it is possible to increase the 8 GeV beamline rate (since BPL5MA and B88 are below their trip points).
Record the operator's name and response (that the rate was increased, or why it was not) in the MiniBooNE Beamline E-log.
This request may be made only once per shift.

ONCE PER SHIFT: Enter MiniBooNE detector checklist data in data base (your initials in comments):

Check that the Run Summary checks are up to date (see run summary book):

Perform online study (see golden rules book)
END OF SHIFT: Complete B87 ($1D events!) shift summary for MiniBooNE Beamline E-log

Enter 8-hour beam summary plot (D44:summary; NOT averaged!) in MBB E-log

Log out of CRL, return cell phone to charger (if not charged)

Brief next shifter on beam conditions, detector status, other ongoing issues
