  • Download of code and other operational information to Front-End microproccesors... DNLDD
  • Periodic reading and saving of all normally addressable control system data... BIGSAVE, to help discover ERRORS
  • Export (TCPORT ) to and Import (MACSET, REMOTE) from Mac and unix machines of device readings and settings
  • Shared file access by Accelerator Console Applications... FSHARE
  • Global coordination of data from multiple Front-End microprocessors... GLFRIG
  • Monitoring HEARTBEAT of important tasks on Consoles, Central Computing nodes and Front-End microprocessors
  • Circular and Permanent archive of selected accelerator parameters... LJARCHIVE, LUMBERJACK
  • Software emulation of Front-Ends to facilitate Console Applications development... MIRROR
  • Software Front-Ends to allow calculated device values... CACHE, MACALC, TEVCAL, CHLOAC, BOOOAC, TIMEAV
