Frameworks for the DAQ software:

For the DAQ software several frameworks have been reviewed including EPICS and DOOCS. The final decision was made for DOOCS. Some helpful links are listed:

Overview over the DAQ software task for CALICE:

Documentation of the installation:

Documentation of a few examples:

There are a few examples in the DOOCS framework which help to understand how to make things work. Please have a look at them before developing your own code.


The GUIs are important for the DAQ Software and Control System because they are the interface for the shifter. DOOCS provides good GUIs either based on XVIEW (like ddd, rpc_util) which is unfortunately still only available for 32bit and JAVA (jdd, jdoocs)

Current ODR software :

The current CALICE software can be downloaded from the CVS repository as described in the installation link.

Alarm handling:

Current Alarm handling still based on XVIEW, update to JAVA not foreseen for near future because the implementation is very DESY specific.

Device/File/Conditions database:

Device/File/Conditions database to be used for a large test beam.
