This assumes that the VME computer has already been booted. This is just a matter of turning it on, it still boots from the old Sun workstation "crater".
The red window has traditionally been used to start "ovene".
The blue window has traditionally been used to start "ovend" and run "oven"
Whatever window you use to type "start_mcube" may be worth keeping around for various uses, or may be closed or minimized.
Running it, with a shared memory segment already in place for the meter cube yields the following:
oven_ipcs 0x00000110 59 pilot 644 263748 2If you don't see a line like the above with with the 0x00000110 value, you will need to create a shared memory segment. Do this by starting the oven program as follows, then immediately exiting it.
oven -MIf you wanted to delete the above shared memory segment
ipcrm -m 59Here the number "59" comes from the second column of the above display and will be different each and every time.
ps -alx | grep ovenDoing this "right now", I see the following:
ps -alx | grep oven 0 1004 2246 1 20 0 3608 2244 - S pts/4 0:00 xgterm -name ovenRed -title Red IRAF XGterm (orig) -e cl 0 1004 2247 1 20 0 3612 2244 - S pts/4 0:00 xgterm -name ovenGreen -title Green IRAF XGterm (orig) -e cl 0 1004 2248 1 20 0 3652 2244 - S pts/4 0:00 xgterm -name ovenPurple -title Purple IRAF XGterm (orig) -e cl 0 1004 2249 1 20 0 3836 2532 - S pts/4 0:00 xgterm -name ovenBlue -title Blue IRAF XGterm (orig) -e cl 0 1004 3606 1 20 0 11608 8892 - S ? 0:24 ovend -M 0 1010 8869 8818 20 0 215748 888 - S+ pts/9 0:00 grep --color=auto ovenThis shows the ovend background process running with the -M option (hence for the meter cube) along with the various terminal windows being used by the oven pilot. If you wanted to start clean from scratch, you would probably want to kill the ovend process using the command:
kill -9 3606The number "3606" will be different each time. It is the "PID" of the intended process to be killed and comes from the third column in the above display.
nohup ovene -M & ovenSet the oven program in the red window to read the error log.
I don't believe you need the "P" and "B" daemons for the meter cube, but you can certainly start them should you care to:
nohup ovenp -M & nohup ovenb -M &If you are going to run these, standard wisdom is that it is best to start them before booting the VME computer.
You definitely need to start the "D" daemon if it is not already running. Use one of the following commands.
nohup ovend -M & nohup ovend -M -nol &The "-nol" switch says to not log information to FITS files, which may often be appropriate when the meter cube is being used.
Last, but not least, you need to start the oven GUI via:
oven -MThe blue window will now run the oven program talking to the shared memory segment for oven1v0. You should get fresh data each minute.
