  During the past 5 years, Instrumentation Technologies expanded and added to the embedded OS running on Libera instruments (beam position instrumentation, LLRF) a lot of data access interfaces to allow faster access to the signals retrieved by the instrument. Some of the access interfaces are strictly related to the user environment Machine control system (Epics/Tango), and others related to the user software preferences (Matlab/Python). In the last years, the requirement for easier data streaming was raised to allow easier data access using PC and mobile phones through a web browser. This paper aims to present the development of the web backend server and the realization of a web frontend capable to process the data retrieved by the instrument. A use-case will be presented, the realization of the Libera Current Meter Web GUI as a first development example of a Web GUI interface for a Libera instrument and the starting point for the Web GUI pipeline integration on other instruments. The HTTP access interface will become in the next years a standard in data access for Libera instrumentation for quick testing/diagnostics and will allow the final user to customize it autonomously.

THPV042 Evolution of the CERN Beam Instrumentation Offline Analysis Framework (OAF) framework, status, controls, database 965

  The CERN accelerators require a large number of instruments, measuring different beam parameters like position, losses, current etc. The instruments’ associated electronics and software also produce information about their status. All these data are stored in a database for later analysis. The Beam Instrumentation group developed the Offline Analysis Framework some years ago to regularly and systematically analyze these data. The framework has been successfully used for nearly 100 different analyses that ran regularly by the end of the LHC run 2. Currently it is being updated for run 3 with modern and efficient tools to improve its usability and data analysis power. In particular, the architecture has been reviewed to have a modular design to facilitate the maintenance and the future evolution of the tool. A new web based application is being developed to facilitate the users’ access both to online configuration and to results. This paper will describe all these evolutions and outline possible lines of work for further improvements.

  DISCOS is the control software of the Italian Radio Telescopes and it is based on the Alma Control Software. The project core started during the construction of the Sardinia Radio Telescope and it has been further developed to support also the other antennas managed by INAF, which are the Noto and the Medicina antenna. Not only does DISCOS control all the telescope subsystems like servo systems, backends, receivers and active optic, but also allows users to execute the needed observing strategies. In addition, many tools and high-level applications for observers have been developed over time. Furthermore, DISCOS development is following test driven methodologies, which, together with real hardware simulation and automated deployment, speed up testing and maintenance. Altogether, the status of the DISCOS project is described here with its related activities, and also future plans are presented as well.
