Big modern physics detector experiments represent a collaboration of workgroups and require wide variety of electronic equipment. All devices can be classified into two categories - Data Acquisition (DAQ) equipment and hardware that is not time-critical and can be run at low priority.
But the statuses and stored data from these systems, such as high voltage systems, gas systems, temperature sensors, front-end electronics, etc. play notable part in the experiment operation and further data analysis.
Monitoring, control and archiving of the values from the devices must be centralised and unified to simplify data access and interaction between detectors and subsystems.
