TEXTOR diagnostic data acquisition and processing in a distributed system environment
A distributed computer system configuration is used at the KFA Jülich TEXTOR experiment for control and data acquisition of the diagnostic systems as well as for processing of 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 gives a description of the TEXTOR data acquisition system structure, performance and present status of implementation. The distributed nature of the system is outlined.
