  Commissioning the LHC accelerator and experiments will be a vital part of the worldwide high-energy physics program beginning in 2007. A remote operations center, LHC@FNAL, has been built at Fermilab to make it easier for accelerator scientists and experimentalists working in North America to help commission and participate in operations of the LHC and experiments. We report on the evolution of this center from concept through construction and early use. We also present details of its controls system, management, and expected future use.

TOPA02 SDA Time Intervals 79

  SDA (Sequenced Data Acquisition) Time Intervals is a hierarchical logging system for describing complex large-scale repeated processes. SDA has been used extensively at Fermilab* for fine tuning during the Tevatron Collider Run II. SDA Time Intervals is a new system born during discussions between CERN and FNAL about routinely recording relevant data for the LHC. Its main advantages are extremly low maintenance and good integration with traditional "flat" dataloggers. The Time Intervals (TI) system records the time of key events during a process and relates these events to the data that the traditional datalogger archives. From the point of view of the application program, any number of datalogging systems can be refactored into human-understandable time intervals.
