The History Page takes much of its information from the /History ODB tree. Figure 1 shows the History Page from the Deap experiment. This page shows the panels and sub-panels defined in the /History/Display subtree.

New panels are added by the user with the New button (Figure 3). Up to 10 history channels per page are supported.
