Beginning of Shift

Your name: Date:

Owl Shift Only: Begin a new study in the MiniBooNE Beamline e-log:

  1. “End Studies” for previous period in the MiniBooNE Beamline e-log (shift summary is optional).

  2. “Start Studies” in the MiniBooNE Beamline e-log (“studier” can be “MiniBooNE”, title can be anything).

Day Shift Only: Put “air activation” and “water level” plots for the past day in the MiniBooNE Beamline e-log.

Call MCR, give them your name, and tell them you are on shift at MiniBooNE.

Name of the MCR operator you spoke to:

Did you read the MiniBooNE e-log and the MCR e-log for the past shift?

Time: Current run number:

  1. Beam quality over the last 2 hours (from MCR e-log):

  2. Collider complex running mode (e.g., stacking):

  3. Device readings: B:BPL5MA E:MBRATE

  4. E:LM870 E:LM875B

  5. E:WTLVL

  6. Target multiwires: vertical horizontal

  7. Highest fractional Booster losses:

  8. Which L/S section?

  9. Are there any environmental alarms activated?

  10. Are Standard Monitoring Histograms/Distributions O.K.?

  11. Is ACNET incrementer incrementing?

  12. Is the run duration less than 8 hours?

  13. Are any DAQ-log or Nearline-log messages red?

  14. Is heartbeat steady?

  15. Are there any red buttons from the Horn & Target Mon. System?

  16. Is horn counter incrementing?

  17. Does “Mean time nu Candidate” for current.his look reasonable?
