-- Are the issues related to the 'sending of triggers while TRD is Busy' resolved ? Is there action on CTP or TRD, or both ?
For the pilot beam we have the possibility of using FIT for LM or the BC from CTP. What is to be implemented for both of these options ?
Trigger rate (critical)
--> We have never tested beyond 8 kHz input. Latest information is that the accepted rate is only 4 kHz at 8 kHz input. What will be the maximum trigger rate ?
Tracklet readout or digits readout or both for pilot tests (critical)
--- is tracklet readout is already validated? ... if we send all digits, the data rate at 22 khz would be ~20 GB/s (6 GB/s at 8 kHz). This is the same as TPC. Latchezar coordinated with the EOS team to sustain 50 GB/s from CR0 to EOS. So if TRD sends 20 GB/s, we will send too much... (TPC 25 GB/s, ITS 10 GB/s, rest very small, CTF: 3 GB/s)
EPN workflows (not critical -- if not ready, we will run without TRD EPN workflow)
-- This has never been tested.
--> No QC. It is important to have pulse height vs. drift time to see the proper timing of LM...
