CDMS DAQII Run Control

The Configuration Manager is designed so that only experts can configure how the experiment should be run and also provide the user with a predefined set of configurations. The Configuration Manager, based on the remote user selection, generates on-the-fly configuration files to be sent to each of the Local Slow Controls, using predefined template files created by experts for the respective devices. This esnures that, though the remote user is allowed the choose from a set of predefined experimental conditions, can not make choices that are either not suitable or harmful for the experiment.

A JAVA based Graphical User Interface (GUI) is provided for configuring the experiment, which for now allows the expert user to choose which detectors should participate in the experiment and which channels. Detector configuration is allowed only when the experiment is in stop state.
