Planned or desirable deliverables:
6 1 Kurt Biery
# By June 2015, have the 6-server pilot system up and running.  This includes the following functionality:
7 1 Kurt Biery
** one DTC per server
8 1 Kurt Biery
** at least one artdaq EventBuilder process running on each server
9 1 Kurt Biery
** how many real or simulated ROCs per DTC?
10 1 Kurt Biery
** what data rates should be supported?  Between ROCs and DTCs?  Between DTCs and EventBuilders?  To disk?
11 1 Kurt Biery
# By an undetermined date, be able to provide single-server test systems to subdetector groups for ROC development and testing or detector development and testing. Providing such a system does not necessarily imply buying or donating a computer or other hardware. Instead, the DAQ group could provide recommendations on the appropriate server(s), PCIe card(s), network switch(es), etc. that the subdetector group should purchase.  It does imply providing the firmware and software that would be run to acquire and store the data.  This could take the form of a set of instructions for fetching, installing, building, and running the software, or the DAQ group could choose to assist with some of those steps.  The features that would be part of such a system would be the following:
12 1 Kurt Biery
** how would configuration be handled?
13 1 Kurt Biery
** what level of online monitoring would be included?
