TEXTOR diagnostic data acquisition and processing in a distributed system environment
A distributed computer system configuration is used at the KFA Jülich TEXTOR tokamak experiment for control and data acquisition of the diagnostic systems as well as for processing the experimental data. A cluster of VAX computers, interconnected by CI and Ethernet, form the network. VAX/VMS and DECNET is the base for the communication within the network. Interfacing to the process instrumentation is done through CAMAC. High data volumes are acquired, processed and maintained. This paper describes the TEXTOR data acquisition system structure, performance and present status of implementation. An outline is given of the distributed nature of the system.
