Viewing and reducing event data “live” during an experiment is an increasingly important part of experiment control. At ISIS we had developed a simple TCP streamer mechanism that allowed data to be processed by Mantid during an experiment, but this was limited to just the neutron events and was likely to encounter performance issues with our new generation acquisition hardware. As part of an ESS in-kind collaboration, ISIS is working on developing data streaming technologies for managing and delivering such data to clients. It was thus a good opportunity to replace our old streaming system with this developing technology, not only to provide enhanced functionality now for ISIS but also to provide a prototype for developing and testing ESS requirements.
