Hi "TCS_GMRT" team,

The information to download Panic is available in the old Tango Site:

http://plone.tango-controls.org/tools/panic

There you'll find the repositories to download the code and links to the existing guides/presentations.

Regards,

Sergi

PD: Note that Sourceforge servers seem to be down; you'll have to wait for them to recover before getting the code.

Hello Sergi

Thanks a lot for sharing of link. Yeah Presently the server is down so I am unable to get the code. There is urgent requirement for alarms in my project. It would be very nice of you if you could mail me the alarm suite package and its dependencies or can request your tango forum friends to make the server up.
My mail id is : b.chitalia@tcs.com

Well, I guess this sourceforge thing is an "special case". I attach to this post the latest stable tags for fandango, panic and simulators.

Anybody wanting to try it just type this recipes (you'll need PyTango and taurus previously installed):

> tar zxvf fandango.20150721.tgz
> tar zxvf panic.20150721.tgz
> tar zxvf simulator.20150721.tgz
> python

#Create a new alarm device (it can be done from Jive)
>>> from fandango.tango import add_new_device,put_device_property
>>> add_new_device('PyAlarm/1','PyAlarm','test/alarms/1')

#Create a simulator (it can be done from Jive)
>>> add_new_device('PySignalSimulator/1','PySignalSimulator','test/sim/1')
>>> put_device_property('test/sim/1',{'DynamicAttributes':['A=t%100']})

#Create a test alarm (first alarm to be created by API, then you can use the GUI's to add more alarms)
>>> import panic
>>> alarms = panic.api()
>>> alarms.add('TEST_ALARM',formula='(test/sim/1/A%15 > 10)',device='test/alarms/1',description='test',receivers='your@mail')
>>> exit()

#Launch the devices
> python PySignalSimulator/PySignalSimulator.py 1 &
> python PyAlarm/PyAlarm.py 1 &

#Launch the gui
> python Panic/gui.py

If you want to see faster changes in the alarm cycle try to set the following configuration values (Tools->Adv.Config):

PollingPeriod = 1
AlarmThreshold = 1
AutoReset = 5

At the end you should have something very similar to the attached screenshot.

For examples and config meaning go to the docs:

http://plone.tango-controls.org/tools/panic
http://plone.tango-controls.org/tools/panic/pyalarm-device-server

Hope it helps to start trying, please use this same post for feedback as other Panic users may contribute with their own recipes.

Hi Sergi

Thankyou for sharing the zip file along with the steps.
Now i am able to see the above attached screenshots
Also I have to ask one question :

1.)Where i can get the smslib module and PyTangoArchiving module?
2.)You also have FestiveIDS as notification device whose link https://svn.code.sf.net/p/tango-ds/code/DeviceClasses/InputOutput/FestivalDS/trunk is also down. Where i can get this ?


Thanks and Regards

Hi,

The smslib unfortunately is a module that is not open source and depends on your own SMS sending system. You'll have to obtain a similar code from your SMS sending service and tune it to use the same commands triggered by Pyalarm.

FestivalDS and PyTangoArchiving should be available as soon as sourceforge will be back. Festival will work only on linux and it needs the Festival speech synthesizer library to be installed.

In principle you don't need any of this 3 modules to have a Panic setup running, did you manage to start the PyAlarm and Panic applications?

Ok thanks. I expect sourceforge to be up soon. Yeah I managed to start PyAlarm and Panic application with your inputs

Hi Sergi

1.) I have made my own python device which is 'a/a/a'. I have registered in database server. When i am running this device which is by executing python AlarmTest.py alarmtest . It is running successfully.
But when I open Panic Gui, I am unable to add/save new alarm as my device is not listed there.

2.) Does Panic GUI detect java/Cpp Device Server running and show their respective devices in GUI?


Thanks and Regards

Hi Balkrishna,

Panic main window shows only PyAlarm devices as it is meant to be used as a manager of the alarm services (we actually have 20-30 instances running managing about 1300+ alarms).

If you use your "a/a/a" device in a formula then you can search for it using the filters; but it will not appear in the dropdown menu unless it is a PyAlarm instance.
