  CERN’s Accelerator Controls group launched a project in 2003 to develop the new CERN accelerator Real-Time Front-End Software Architecture (FESA) for the LHC and its injectors. In this paper, we would like to report the status of this project, at the eve of the LHC start-up. After describing the main concepts of this real-time Object Oriented Software Framework, we will present how we have capitalized on this technical choice by showing the flexibility through the new functionalities recently introduced such as Transactions, Diagnostics, Monitoring, Management of LHC Critical Settings, and Communication with PLC devices. We will depict the methodology we have put in place to manage the growing community of developers and the start of a collaboration with GSI. To conclude we will present the extensions foreseen in the short term.

  The CERN accelerators’ controls infrastructure spans over large geographical distances and accesses a big diversity of equipment. In order to ensure smooth beam operation, efficient monitoring and diagnostic tools are required by the operators, presenting the state of the infrastructure and offering guidance for the first line support. The DIAMON project intends to deploy software monitoring agents in the controls infrastructure, each agent running predefined local tests and sending its result to a central service. A highly configurable graphical interface will exploit these results and present the current state of the controls infrastructure. Diagnostic facilities to get further details on a problem and first aid to repair it will also be provided. This paper will describe the DIAMON project’s scope and objectives as well as the user requirements. Also presented will be the system architecture and the first operational version.
