Hi Thomas,

I am trying to test the webdisplay but I am not sure which would be the path:

I start the  THttpServer with:

$ ana.exe -r9091

But on the url:

http://localhost:9091/

I find just the default browser provided by JSROOT, while nothing is found on:

http://localhost:9091/CS/webdisplay

Where am I supposed to find the custom webdisplay provided by you?

Thank you, Alberto.

hi,

In mu3e we use cmake to build our software,
and as rootana does not use cmake build system it is
very difficult to integrate it in our software.

I have posted pull request
'https://bitbucket.org/tmidas/rootana/pull-requests/25'
that implements cmake build for rootana.
It is tested standalone on several systems
and also as part of mutrigana-base repo
(which is also used in online repo of mu3e).

Tests and comments are welcome.

reworking our old (MuCap inherited) mana.cpp

To have a good start, what is advised:

a) following the Rootana Analyzer Framework as advertised in https://midas.triumf.ca/MidasWiki/index.php/Rootana_Analyzer_Framework with the TRootanaEventLoop

b) The manalyzer advertised in https://bitbucket.org/tmidas/rootana/src/master/manalyzer/

Option b) with it's module support?
  36   05 Feb 2021 Frederik WautersForumana or manalyzer?
yes, thanks! 

" manalyzer has automatic per-module multithreading "for free"  "

does that mean that if one needs modules to run sequentially (think first clustering, then making higher level physics objects), the user needs to enforce that?

Hi,

I'm facing with a strange problem with rootana:
I fetched and built rootana (master branch) as usual (make / make install);

If I build 'examples' and launch:

./root_server.exe -v

I got a lot of this messages:

Info in <TCling::LoadPCM>: In-memory ROOT PCM candidate /opt/root/lib/.....

and at the end:


 *** Break *** segmentation violation

I'm using ROOT 6.22/06 compiled from source files on Debian 10 on a virtual
machine...

The problem seems to be less critical if I connect with SSH with -XC option
or if I set DISPLAY variable. In these case I got only TCling messages with
this warning:

Error in <TGClient::TGClient>: can't open display "0:0", switching to batch 
mode...
 In case you run from a remote ssh session, reconnect with ssh -Y

If I build manalyzer everything goes fine and it seems that problem is
related to TAnaManager in some ways...

Hi,

thanks for your support,

I realized that this issue is related to GCC/G++ version...
it seems that GCC 8.3 has this "segmentation violation" problem;

I have replaced default Debian GCC (8.3) with testing GCC 10 and
everything works !

Now I'm using a Xubuntu 20.04 LTS (GCC 9) and also here the problem
is not present...

Regards,
Gennaro

Hi,
We are getting these warning of dictionary modules missing and nothing happens. I would have expected some graphical
interface to load up. I have tried copying these .pcm files from the packages/rootana/obj folder to
packages/rootana/examples, now the missing dictionary module complaint goes away but no graphical interface loads up.
Could you please assist with this?

Kind regards,
Hassan

  25   07 Dec 2020 Isaac Labrie BoulayForumThe FIXED format.
Hi folks,

I am thinking of using the FIXED format event to avoid the overhead of the bank 
structure. The Wiki says under "FIXED Format Event" that the standard MIDAS 
analyzer cannot work with this format. What exactly is meant by this? Is it saying 
that the specific ROOTANA analyzer template will not work with the event format? 

Thanks for helping me out!

to use the more recent 'manalyzer' template.

Hi all,

I get this warning when I run anaDisplay.exe (analyzer display mode) of the old 
Rootana analyzer. It seems to be because the analyzer cannot keep up with the data 
gathered by my frontend. The same issue seems to happen when I run the newer 
"manalyzer_example_root_graphic.exe" in graphical mode (-g). Is my computer cpu 
just not powerful enough to run both the data acquisition and the graphical 
analyzer simultaneously? Both the frontend and analyzer run on the same PC.

As always, thanks for the help!

> It is certainly possible that your analyzer cannot keep up with the data taking.  It will depend (at least partly) on what you are trying to do in your analyzer.  Suppose you are taking 1000Hz of events from some waveform digitizer.  If you are trying to do something simple (like count how many bytes are in each data packet) then your analyzer will probably be able to keep up with the data taking.  But if you are trying to do some very complicated maximum likelihood fit to each waveform, then it is possible that your computer (or any computer) would not be able to keep up with the data taking.  In that case maybe your analyzer is only able to process 100Hz of data or 10% of the events (for example).
> 
> But it is not always a problem if your analyzer can't keep up.  The goal of the online analyzer is to allow you to check data in real time.  If you wanted to calculate the pulse height distribution of hits in your waveforms, then it is probably fine that you are only able to process 10% of the events online.  It might take you a little longer to accumulate your statistics for your online plots, but your online analyzer data is still useful.
> 
> On the other hand, there is other types of online analysis where it is important to process every event.  For instance, suppose you are trying to calculate online the rate of a certain type of event that involves making cuts in your online analysig. In that case you will want to be analyzing every event; missing 10% or 90% of events will bias your online analysis.

You might be able to process 1000Hz of waveform data, but you certainly can't update your plots at 1000Hz; so you need to take care with the updating and display of your plots if you really care about speed.

Hi Thomas,

Thank you for the thorough answer. I can now see how this feature is important. Also, I was getting turtle speeds for my analysis rate. 
I found out that it was because I was 'drawing/updating' my histograms for every event. I'm new to ROOT and I didn't realize how badly these 
functions slow down your system.

Cheers.

  38   22 Mar 2021 Isaac Labrie BoulayForumManalyzer - Preventing BeginRun() from getting called when I stop the run.
Hi all,

I am running an analyzer using an manalyzer templates and the analysis seems to 
lag behind the events getting stored in the buffer by my frontend. This is because 
the live histogram (-g) is very slow to update and draw. The slight delay causes a 
run object to be created after I 'stop' the acquisition. I'm guessing that this is 
because there are still MIDAS events in the ring buffer. This causes the 
BeginRun() methods of all my modules to get called again.

What is the best way to prevent this? From what I understand, PreEndRun() methods 
should only be used to clear buffered flow events. Is there maybe a way to speed 
up the histogram drawing so that I don't get this lag in the analysis?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for your time.

  3   16 Sep 2016 Konstantin OlchanskiInfoROOT v6 status
ROOT v6 has been around for a while now, finally got around to test it with ROOTANA.

a) using root-v6-06-08
b) everything compiles and links
c) the example applications - i.e. display_example.exe - seem to run correctly
d) user applications linked against librootana.a show a problem loading the ROOTANA rdict.pcm files.

Failure to load the rdict.pcm files seems to prevent some functions, at least in the GUIs.

I do not fully understand how ROOT is supposed to find these files and I am asking for help on the ROOT forum.

In the mean time, there is a work around:
- symlink all rdict.pcm files into same place as the executable: ln -sv $ROOTANASYS/*/*.pcm .
- symlink all (many) .h files into the same place (this is a bit extreme): ln -sv $ROOTANASYS/include/* .

K.O.

> ROOT v6 has been around for a while now, finally got around to test it with ROOTANA.

The problems with loading rdict.pcm files and c++ .h header files is resolved, ROOTANA should be fully usable with ROOTv6:

Put this in your login file:

export ROOTANASYS=$HOME/packages/rootana
export ROOT_INCLUDE_PATH=$ROOTANASYS/include
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$ROOTANASYS/obj

Explanation:
- LD_LIBRARY_PATH is used to search for rdict.pcm files.
- ROOT_INCLUDE_PATH is used to find the c++ .h header files.

Does the ROOT web server NOT implement CORS? We should file a bug report with ROOT if it does not.

It is a problem inside ROOT. The pcm files replaced the dict.h files during the switch from CINT in 
ROOTv5 to LLVM in ROOTv6. But they have a mistake and use the wrong path for finding these files. 
I.e. search for "cannot find dictionary module" on the ROOT forum https://root-forum.cern.ch

the problem of recursive calls to the event handler, depending on which version of MIDAS you use. The
