Hi,

I need to install MIDAS on a Windows system (Microsoft Windows Server 2003). 
The computer has the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express version.
I have downloaded the MIDAS packages using the tarball mechanism. I have create 
the environment variables without problems and I have create the file           
%SystemRoot%\system32\exptab 
But when I try to build MIDAS and I do 
nmake -f makefile.nt
I have the following problem:
Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility Version 10.00.30319.01
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

NMAKE : fatal error U1073: don't know how to make 'src/mhttpd.c'
Stop.

I don't understand this problem. Can anybody help me, please?

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Raquel,

The makefile.nt has been corrected.
Obviously Midas on Windows has not been updated for quite a while.
mhttpd.c has been converted to c++ (mhttpd.cxx) as well as a couple of other 
applications.

Please give a try,  PAA

Hi Pierre-André, 

sorry for the long delay, another things keep me out of this computer.
Thanks a lot for correcting makefile.nt and the other applications!

Now I have try, downloading the MIDAS packages from the tarball mechanism, as
before,
and now it seems that the previous problems are solved. It remains only one small
problem, it is related to the odbedit.

I attach here the figure with the error that is reported by the computer. Is it
possible that is another file that needs to be updated? Can you help me with that?

Thanks a lot in advance!!!!

  1713   28 Sep 2019 Pintaudi GiorgioForumMIDAS interface for WAGASCI online monitor
Hello!
This question is rather complex so please forgive me if I leave out some
details.

I am currently developing an online monitor to check the data quality for the
WAGASCI experiment. The online monitor would show (almost in real-time) the
gain, the dark noise, and the pedestal for all the channels, the 2D tracks
inside the detectors for each spill and so on. This is possible because we can
continuously calibrate the WAGASCI electronics even during a Physics run.

Anyway, as I said during the MIDAS workshop, right now, we do not use MIDAS as a
frontend DAQ to readout the Physics data from the electronics (we use Pyrame and
the BabyMIND DAQ for that). One day, we might have Pyrame and the BabyMIND DAQ
send the Physics data to MIDAS in the form of MIDAS events ... but we are still
far from it (mainly because of lack of man-power on the BabyMIND side). I do not
think we will ever achieve this goal in the lifetime of the experiment because
the BabyMIND people do not see any added value in using MIDAS as a DAQ. But this
is another issue so I am going to drop this argument for now.

The fact is that I have written and tested all the code to continuously read the
WAGASCI electronics in real-time. I now would like to display some histograms and
figures in a MIDAS custom page that would automatically refresh/update. I have
not written the visualization part yet, because I would like to hear your
feedback first.

So my questions are. Suppose you have some ROOT histograms updating in real
time, what is the best way to show them in a MIDAS custom page? Is the ROOT
HttpServer an option here? If not ROOT, is there a better way to display
histograms in a web page?

I could have avoided the long introduction and just asked the questions but I
wanted to give you a little background.

This is a cartoonist impression of what I would like to achieve.

Thank you
Giorgio

Hi Pintaudi Giorgio,

I think that the ROOT THttpServer is an option. The ROOT tools are not perfect, but it is relatively easy to embed plots in custom MIDAS pages. I have a description of one way of doing this here:

Hmm... I now realize that the midas distribution does not include an example web page that 
integrates all these elements into one easy to understand html file.

I think an example page that would answer your questions and the questions from the other 
thread about starting/stopping runs, should include following elements:

- the general midas web page framework (the midas left-hand side menu, the top side 
status display, Stefan's new odb tags)
- buttons to start and stop runs (javascript code to call the run transition RPCs)
- embedded images for history display (old style gif and new style canvas)
- embedded images for ROOT histograms (via the ROOT http server and jsroot)
- code to live-update all these elements independantly from each other (to allow history 
plots and ROOT histograms to update at different frequencies).

As for the web page code for showing a mini-event-display, I think we do not know yet how 
to do - the event data lives inside the analyzer as C++ data structures, so somehow it 
needs to be encoded as json (this code is missing - but one can use the ROOT C++ to json 
encoder/streamer), needs to be transported to the web browser (we know how to do this) 
and at the end, plotting the json data on a canvas is the easy part.

I know some experiments have done all of this, and I think we should have such a pipeline 
available as part of the ROOTANA package. Maybe some day...

  1717   29 Sep 2019 Pintaudi GiorgioForumMIDAS interface for WAGASCI online monitor
Dear Thomas and Konstantin,

thank you very much for the feedback. I found the ROOTANA javascript display a good source of 
information and references.

As Thomas said, maybe the simplest thing would be to use the ROOT THttpServer. Honestly, I do 
not think that ROOT was ever meant to act as an online monitor due to its wacky memory 
management and abysmal multithread support. In other words, I think that by using ROOT we would 
inevitably lose some performance. 

Perhaps there are better ways of achieving the same goal. For example, I was leaning towards a 
plotly.js based approach where I would encode a series of vectors in base64 strings (for better 
transmission performance), send them to the client through the MJSONRPC mechanism, decode them 
and then feed them to plotly.js. But in this case, I should study many new libraries 
(plotly.js, the library for the base64 encoding, the Gaussian fitting, etc...) and I do not 
have the time to do that now: "beam is coming".

So ROOT it is. I will use the ROOTANA javascript display as a reference. Do you happen to know 
who wrote that part? 

In that example, you have some "static" histograms that you keep always in memory, while in our 
case the number of channels is so big that we have to dynamically generate the histograms only 
when needed (when the user select a single channel).

Best regards
Giorgio

Yes. The previous data analysis frameworks - PAW/PAW++/CERNlib (CERN), NOVA (TRIUMF) - certainly had
support for online monitoring. In CERNlib/PAW the histograms were stored in shared memory,
the analyzer running in the background was filling them, the PAW/PAW++ display was displaying
them "live". I was very surprised to find this function removed/not implemented in ROOT, given
that the same people were behind both projects (Rene Brun & co).

We tried to roll our own implementation of this in ROOTANA/ROODY, with mixed success.

I am glad the JSROOT project finally gained traction and web based "I can see the data" is now
available in ROOT.

There are many web/javascript graphics libraries out there, all have the weak spot - how do you
get your data into them?

Going forward, I see us standardizing on JSROOT: https://root.cern.ch/js/

I am not sure JSROOT have any support for interacting from the web page to the back-end analyzer. Perhaps
we can use the MIDAS MJSONRPC library for this. Hmm... (Note that the ROOT HTTP server is a derivative
of the mongoose web server library, which we use in mhttpd, so I already know how to work it)

We looked into this when deciding on the data encoding for the midas history data. There is a tradeoff
between network use and cpu use - to save on the network, you try to reduce the data size by using
compressed binary data - to save on the CPU you try to minimize data encoding.

For history data, we gave up on binary json (extra decoding needed), gave up on text json (extra decoding 
needed), gave up on compression (extra cpu use for decompression) and use javascript native binary processing
("arraybuffer").

Our thinking is that network bandwidth is usually quite big and is getting bigger, but cpu resource is limited
and is expensive. (mobile devices seems to be stuck with ~2 GHz CPUs; cpu use means battery use and
battery capacity is limited, not improving quickly)

Yes. See "Contact" at https://root.cern.ch/js/

This requires interaction with the analyzer, requires some kind of RPC mechanism. I am now curious what jsroot 
have, also it would not be too hard to add the mjsonrpc library to rootana. Cooperation from ROOT multithreading
is not required: I can queue the RPC requests in a separate (thread safe, non-ROOT) buffer, then process
them in the ROOT main event loop (this is how the ROOTANA histogram server worked in the days when
ROOT had no multithread support at all).

  1098   20 Aug 2015 Thomas LindnerBug ReportMIDAS message page auto-size (horizontally) is annoying
New version of MIDAS has a feature where it seems to automatically resize the
message page horizontally in order to fix each MIDAS message into one line. 
Some of my MIDAS messages (in particular error messages, where I need details)
are very long.  The result is that the MIDAS page automatically becomes very
wide and I have to scroll a lot left/right in order to read my messages.  This
is annoying.

I would vote to roll-back this new feature.

  565   17 Apr 2009 Jimmy NgaiForumMIDAS mhttpd custom page questions
Dear All,

I have created a custom page (please see the attachment) and imported into 
MIDAS with key name "Control panel&" (without the ""). I have the following 
two questions:

1) I display the status of the run with <odb src="/Runinfo/State">, but it 
returns numbers which is not user friendly. How can I make something 
like "Running" with green background and "Stopped" with red background in the 
default status page?

2) When I click either Start/Stop/Pause/Resume, it can performs the right 
things, but afterward it jumps to the page "http://domain.name:8081/CS/" which 
shows "Invalid custom page: NULL path". How can I make it returns to the 
correct page "http://domain.name:8081/CS/Control%20panel"?

Thank you for your attention.

Best Regards,
Jimmy

Sorry my late reply, I was really busy. You need JavaScript to perform such a 
task. See the attached example.

You add a hidden redirect statement:

  <input type=hidden name=redir value="CS/Control panel">

Again with JavaScript:

  var v = ODBGet('/some/path&format=%X');

this will retrieve /some/path and format it in hexadecimal. Then you can set a table 
cell with "v" as I wrote in the last reply. If you want to change this value 
however, you need to encode this yourself in JavaScript.

  226   07 Oct 2005 Stefan RittInfoMIDAS moved from CVS to Subversion
Dear Midas users,

I have moved midas from CVS to Subversion today. There were many reasons for doing so, which I don't want to explain in detail here. To use the new repository, there a several things to note:

  • Anonymous checkout can be done now with
    svn co svn+ssh://svn@savannah.psi.ch/afs/psi.ch/project/meg/svn/midas/trunk midas
    svn co svn+ssh://svn@savannah.psi.ch/afs/psi.ch/project/meg/svn/mxml/trunk mxml

    Use password svn (you might have to enter it several times). The mxml package is now outside from midas, so you have to check it out separately.
  • Non-anonymous access (for commits!) is only possible if you have an account at PSI. While it is possible via
    svn co svn+ssh://<your_name>@savannah.psi.ch/afs/psi.ch/project/meg/svn/midas/trunk midas
    it is more convenient if you access the repository via AFS, since then you only have to obtain a valid AFS token once a day and do not have to supply passwords on each SVN access
  • Before you do a checkout, delete (or rename) your old CVS working directory
  • Subversion does not use file revisions, but a global revision number for the whole repository, which is now at 2752. To get some idea about subversion, read this very good book
  • The Web access to the repository is at http://savannah.psi.ch/viewcvs/trunk/?root=midas
  • The ViewCVS web interface allows on-the-fly generation of TAR balls from the current repository. Just click on the link Download tarball
  • The old CVS repository has been switched to read-only and will be completely closed in a few weeks
  • The machine midas.psi.ch will in the near future not be available any more for any repository
  • All the $Log: tags in the midas files have been replaced by $Id: tags, since the former ones are not supported by SVN (for good reasons actually). To view the change log, do a svn log <filename>.

For the windows users, I have some additional notes:

  • Do not use the Cygwin subversion package, but the binaries from here if you plan to access the SVN repository through AFS at PSI (or other places where AFS is available). If you map the AFS repository for example to "Y:", then the binaries access this under file:///Y:/svn/meg/... whicl the cygwin ones access this under file:///cygwin/y/svn/meg/... While this is ok in principle, it gives a conflict with the TortoiseSVN which expects the first path. So if you want to use command line utilities together with TortoiseSVN, the Cygwin package won't work.
  • Use the TortoiseSVN package. It's really great! It has a very nice "diff" viewer/merger, it's integrated into the Windows explorer, has a spell checker for composing comments for commits, etc.
  • For the SVN binaries under Windows, you have to set the environment variable LANG=en_US, otherwise svn will talk in German to you on a standard PSI Windows PC.

If there are any problems in accessing the new repository, please let me know.

Note: This elog entry has been updated since the original one did have a wrong username in the SVN URL.
  942   16 Dec 2013 Konstantin OlchanskiInfoMIDAS on ARM
I added MIDAS Makefile rules for building ARM binaries: "make linuxarm" and "make cleanarm" will create 
(and clean) object files, libraries and executables under "linux-arm" using the TI Sitara ARM SDK or the 
Yocto SDK ARM cross-compilers (GCC 4.7.x and 4.8.x respectively). (Makefile rules for building PPC 
binaries have existed for years).

The hardware we have at TRIUMF are "ARMv7" machines - TI Sitara 335x CPUs (google mityarm) and Altera 
Cyclone 5 FPGA ARM (google sockit). (as opposed to the ARMv5 CPU on the RaspberryPi). The software 
binary API standard settled by Fedora Linux is "hard float" (as opposed to "soft float" used by older SDKs).

So "ARMv7 hard float" is what we intend to use at TRIUMF, but ARMv5 and soft-float should also work ok, 
so please report successes and/or problems to this forum.

K.O.
  236   02 Dec 2005 Greg HackmanInfoMIDAS on Cygwin
If you want to run MIDAS on Cygwin, make sure you have cygserver running. First set a Windows system environment variable CYGWIN=server. This is best done through the Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables. Then run /usr/bin/cygserver-config in a Cygwin console window. Then reboot. After that your MIDAS executables should run properly.

If cygserver is not running, one (obvious) symptom is that odbedit fails immediately with a "Bad system call" error.

I've only tested this so far with odbedit and an offline analyzer that generates histograms in the same structure . Both of those work properly.
  284   02 Aug 2006 Shawn BishopBug ReportMIDAS packaged examples: compilation bug?
Hi All,

I switched to Sci. Linux 4.3, from FC5, and was able to get the guts of MIDAS to compile without any difficulties. Now, I have followed the "Quick Start" instructions (http://ladd00.triumf.ca/~daqweb/doc/midas/html/quickstart.html ) to the letter and have attempted to start my DAQ coding using the hbookexpt as a template.

So, as per the quickstart instructions, I have gone into the /midas/examples/hbookexpt directory and have done a "make" (after doing my own make clean). Below, in red, is the output of the compilation attempt. Are there .h files missing to be causing all of these "undefined reference" warnings/errors?

The funny thing is, despite all of these warnings, and the eventual error, the object files were made.

Anyone have an idea what's going on here?

Cheers,
Shawn

The Makefile contained the outdated target fal, which is a combined frontend/analyzer/logger. You don't need that, so I removed it from the makefile. Now it should compile fine.

Hi Stefan. There must be more going on than the outdated fal. I svn'd the new repository onto my machine and attempted another compile of the hbook example. The compiler continues to spit out similar looking "undefined reference" warnings/errors. Output in red. If it matters, the cernlib2005 rpm is what I've installed on the machine.
