What can be found in the ODB
The Online Database contains specific system information related to the overall operation of the data acquisition and also to any information that the "MIDAS client" currently involved in the experiment wants to share across different Midas applications.
Accessing the ODB interactively
Accessing the MIDAS ODB interactively is done in two possible ways:
- Using the odbedit application command line.
- Using a web browser accessing the URL of the midas server
The ODB Structure
The data in the ODB are structured in a tree form with each "directory" dealing with a specific section of the acquisition. Particular system applications such as the Data Logger, Frontend will create on their initial ODB structure without user intervention. Later it will be possible to modify these configurations to the user requirements.
Section such as /System, /Runinfo, /Experiment are mainly managed by the system itself.
