General news: NOTE: The Health Check and calChecker services are moved to qcFlow on an instrument by instrument basis. The current pages will not be updated any longer once the move has been finished.
The links to KMOS, UVES, and ESPRESSO have been moved to a new section (qcFlow operational) at the lower part of the navigation bar.

This plot

This is the Health Check plot to monitor the efficiency of the GIRAFFE arclamp. We display the QC1 parameter lamp_effic which is the average (mean intensity/EXPTIME) flux of all emission lines, in ADU/sec, for all fibres except for the SIMCAL fibres.

This plot monitors the HC data taken in high resolution (H525.8B, all slits, box 1-5) and low resolution (L543.1, Medusa1 and 2 only, boxes 6 and 7).

If the intensity drops in one of the fibre systems, there is most likely a problem with that fibre system. If the fibre systems all drop simultaneously, this is likely to be a problem with the calibration lamp itself.

The quality of the arclamp exposures is quite critical for the quality of the dispersion solution. An intensity drop increases the rms of the dispersion solution significantly (see rms plot under "wavelength calibration", around epoch 2007-10).
 


General information

Click on any of the plots to see a close-up version.

The latest date is indicated on top of the plot.

If configured,

  • data points belonging to the latest date are specially marked
  • statistical averages are indicated by a solid line, and thresholds by broken lines
  • outliers are marked by a red asterisk. They are defined as data points outside the threshold lines
  • "aliens" (= data points outside the plot Y limits) are marked by a red arrow ( or )
  • you can download the data for each parameter set if the 'Data downloads' link shows up
