An up-time and lost-time python module for HAWC data taking

Research output: Other contribution


In this note, we review the up-time and lost-time in the HAWC data taking obtained from the Data Quality and Diagnostics database (QMDB). For this purpose, we use the online and production using a Python module. A description of this script is presented here. We show preliminary results on the up-time and lost-time from April 2015 to July 2021. We conclude that the up-time corresponds to 92 % of all the real-time. The present script also allows identifying in an accessible way and on a few seconds, periods of activity and inactivity in the data-taking process, which may be of interest for the different synergies of collaboration. The effective up-time will be derived using this script on the next stage of this work, and it will allow us to create a repository of those inactivity periods.
