Summary of current status in RunControl

Frontend Control/Monitoring

  • IOC on LynxOS works reliable
  • implementation of "blub_lib" interface to IOC done for status and control, EPICS mechanism well understood, extensions seem easily possible
  • instead of a sequencer, the control of one complete crate is done via a sseq record, works ok
  • one ioc holds true for all subsystems, ioc database templates are written, substitutions for rich[012] exist and are tested
  • error handling is missing
  • control of the whole system (replacement for hadaq.tcl) may be done via a sequencer on lxhadesdaq
  • IOC doesn't run on E7, special solution or wait for Linux?
  • many more monitoring ideas, e.g. buffer fill status to detect bottlenecks like bad watermark


  • VOID, still completely done with tcl parameter files
  • Idea about integration of DB into GUI via web browser in "kiosk" mode


  • MEDM is not the perfect solution, but we will stick with it
  • Automatic generation of ADL files will be necesseary
  • Mix MEDM with web browser


  • is at HP Bad Homburg Monday to Wednesday next week
