CERN, Geneva  - Switzerland

I am currently working in the development of the Alice DAQ electronic logbook system, based on MySQL and Web languages (PHP, HTML, CSS, Javascript). I am responsible for: - Identify the relevant information to be stored in the logbook system for archiving. - Design, implement, and deploy the relevant database architecture and Web services to store and browse logbook data. - In a second phase, analyse logbook data and optimize performances. The DAQ farm, counting about 400 nodes, could be used during shutdown periods to stress the system and carry on scalability measurements and fine tuning. - Define a statistical quality index based on the overall running conditions, in order to spot good and bad run candidates. This requires analysing real logbook data recorded during the runs. - Complete and evolve the tools with the new incoming equipments added in Alice.
