Question: How to support different plug-in options for
  • control messaging
  • data flow
  • DAQ monitoring
  • DQM
Desired functionality:
  • web server
  • better serving of events to online monitoring
  • handling of histo files
CMS questions:
  • calibration vs data taking (production)
  • calibration --> histograms, only histograms?

nodejs for artdaq control and config
nodejs for web-based DQM
nodejs for web server support of artdaq processes

which functions get merged between xdaq and artdaq?
  • run control functionality
  • receive commands
  • read out data from hardware
  • write data locally
  • transfer to farm
