The easiest way of running the acquisition is from the Midas web interface. The experiment interface is located at http://mulanbe.psi.ch and the experiment name is "mulan".

The run is started and stopped by clicking the start/stop button on the top left. On starting the run the event rate and data rate for the frontend processes, event builder and data logger are reported on the status page. For further information on frontend performance type "screen -r mhtdc" to see the CAEN frontend process and "screen -r wfd01" to see the WFD frontend process. To terminate these screens type Ctrl AD.
