> I try to save data to an FTP server but don't get any data on the server. Midas does not complain or message any error but also nothing gets saved. Does somebody have experience with this? I use the following settings for the ODB mlogger channel settings: Type: FTP, Filename: server.com, 21, user, pw, ., run%06d.mid, Format: MIDAS, Output: FILE. What would be the Output: FTP setting for? I tried this but it does not work at all.
Hi, Ivo, good to hear from a midas user in these difficult times.
We do not use FTP at TRIUMF, but Stefan asked us to keep FTP alive and working, so we should be able
to get you going. I will try to find the FTP instructions for you, I am pretty sure I have them somewhere.
In the mean time, I am very curious why you are using a FTP to record data, is it some kind
of data appliance where simplest input for data is FTP? Using NFS does not work or is too hard?
Also for example at CERN, we write data to Castor and EOS, for this mlogger writes data to local disk,
then the lazylogger runs a script to move the data to Castor and EOS. The example lazylogger
scripts for this are in the MIDAS "progs" directory. But maybe you do not have a local disk and this would
not work for you.
In other news, I hope to work on mlogger and lazylogger support for cloud storage (swift and s3 apis?),
would that be useful as replacement for FTP?
