Integrating data acquisition and offline processing systems for small experiments at Fermilab

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Two small experiments at Fermilab are using the large UNIX central computing facility at Fermilab (FNALU) to analyze data. The data acquisition systems are based on {open_quotes}off the shelf{close_quotes} software packages utilizing VAX/VMS computers and CAMAC readout. As the disk available on FNALU approaches the sizes of the raw data sets taken by the experiments (50 Gbytes) we have used the Andrew File System (AFS) to serve the data to experimenters for analysis.
