Title: Development of a Data Acquisition Program for the Purpose of Monitoring Processing Statistics Throughout the BaBar Online Computing Infrastructure's Farm Machines

Abstract

A current shortcoming of the BaBar monitoring system is the lack of systematic gathering, archiving, and access to the running statistics of the BaBar Online Computing Infrastructure's farm machines. Using C, a program has been written to gather the raw data of each machine's running statistics and compute various rates and percentages that can be used for system monitoring. These rates and percentages then can be stored in an EPICS database for graphing, archiving, and future access. Graphical outputs show the reception of the data into the EPICS database. The C program can read if the data are 32- or 64-bit and correct for overflows. This program is not exclusive to BaBar and can be easily modified for any system.
