Upload of: Templates created externally (VDCT etc...) Substitution files Dbd files Startup scripts Binaries (core, libraries, snl,...) Everything for a particular IOC!
Generation of Boot directory structure and files for each IOC Files can have version number extensions to allow multiple versions, for example of templates, per IOC. Possible to restrict rights so that only DB can write to boot directory
Other features Easy to install and operate – no oracle knowledge necessary. Can run on stand alone system – even a laptop. Not Oracle version dependent Display differences between versions (tkdiff) Direct modification of config files on-line
System View Displays list of systems Add/modify/delete Upload opi,alh, archiver configs
Device Support View Displays list of available device/record support Display versions with comments Upload/Modify/Delete Add to one or more IOCs
IOC view Lists IOCs in system Add/modify/delete an IOC
IOC modify Lists current versions and history of changes Modify Epics core version Modify version of records Modify version of device support Modify version of templates* Modify version of substitutions* Modify version of startup script* Modify location of boot directory Roll-back to any date/version subset *direct editing is possible
Conclusions Using an RDB will simplify the configuration of an Epics installation This will make necessary changes faster and less error prone This will in turn lead to reduced accelerator downtime
