How do I see what a PV is reading?

Question

How do I see what a PV is reading?​

Answer

From a command line on any mcc computer (or signed into facet-srv01) type:

 

cvget PVNAME

 

If there are multiple PVs, list them:

 

caget PVNAME1 PVNAME2

 

You can also "probe". Type probe at a command prompt (on facet-srv01). The video I linked to explains how to use it.

 

Of course, there are other ways because people have created screens within facethome to look at them...
