TGBT17B_501_03 - Spectral Line Commissioning Tests (Baseline)

Goals

Collect position switched data on a bright HI source as a baseline comparison for regression tests. Focusing on Modes 1, 4, 7, 10, 15, 20, 22, and 29.

Details

  • Start at 16:30
  • Submitting AcceptanceTestsSpectralTP SB
    • Scans #1/2 are Mode 1 on/off pair
      • Scan ran OK
    • Scans #3/4 are Mode 4 on/off pair
      • Looks good
    • Scan #5 aborted due to invalid data. Cycling VEGAS off/on
    • Got another abort due to HPC program taking too long to be ready. Cycling VEGAS again.
    • Scans #7/8 are Mode 7 on/off pair

    • Scans #9/10 are Mode 10 on/off pair
      • Looks good
    • Scans #11 aborted due to invalid data. Bank B seems to have crashed but recovered. Cycled VEGAS off/on. Not sure why there are so many aborts.
    • Got another abort from Bank G. Cycled again.
    • Scans #13/14 are Mode 15 on/off pair
      • Looks good

Conclusions

  • Despite some VEGAS aborts, I got all the data I wanted.
