Assessing the confidence of detection for candidate signals of gravitational waves is a particularly subtle matter. A fundamental step toward this achievement is the validation of the output data of the detectors involved. Here we present how this is accomplished in the operating resonant detector AURIGA by discriminating between satisfactory and unsatisfactory periods of operations on the basis of data self consistency. In particular, the statistics of the operating noise is checked againstdoi:10.1063/1.1291878 fatcat:ysw5s2pruzf47gn2s6wjxq6msi
