mstat is a simple ASCII status display. It presents the most useful information about the current condition of the MIDAS Acquisition system in a compact form.

The display is composed at the most of 5 sections depending on the current status of the experiment. The section displayed in order from top to bottom refer to:

  • Run information.
  • Equipment listing and statistics if any @ref FE_frontend_utility "frontend" is active.
  • Logger information and statistics if @ref F_mlogger_utility "mlogger" is active.
  • Lazylogger status if lazylogger is active.
  • Client listing.


  [-h ] : help
  [-h hostname ] : host name (see @ref RC_odbedit_utility)
  [-e exptname ] : experiment name (see @ref RC_odbedit_utility)
  [-l ] : loop. Forces mstat to remain in a display loop. Enter "!" to terminate the command.
  [-w time ] : refresh rate in seconds. Specifies the delay before refreshing the screen with up-to-date information. 
               Default: 5 seconds. Has to be used in conjunction with -l switch. Enter "R" to refresh screen on next update.
