Abstract content

Distributed Information Services for Control Systems (DISCS) is a framework for building high-level applications for commissioning, operation, and maintenance of an experimental physics facility. It provides programmatic as well as graphical interfaces to its data and services. It is comprised of a set of cooperating services and applications, and manages data such as naming, machine configuration, lattice, measurements, alignment, cables, machine state, inventory, operations, calibration, and design parameters. The services/applications include Logbook, Traveler, Unit Conversion, Online Model, and Save-Restore. Each component of the system has a database, an API, and a set of applications. The services are accessed through RESTful and EPICS V4 interfaces.

We present the current status of DISCS.
