The IceCube Detector Operations group continues to improve reliability and add new functionality to the data acquisition (DAQ) and online system as the science of IceCube expands. Following a brief overview of the baseline design which has been running for nearly a decade and highlights of the operational performance of the implementation, this presentation will go on to describe a recent major enhancement to the DAQ, hit-spooling, its implementation, and discuss current uses of the new capabilities. Finally, plans for significant re-architecting of the low-level readout subsystem of the DAQ based on deep-buffer concept of hit-spooling will be discussed.
