AURIGA: the acquisition monitor


The grafical user interface for control and monitor of the acquisition processes is realized with National Instruments LabView software. The main interface lets the user choose which tasks are to be activated (bare acquisition, data storing to disk, backup to tape, auxiliary channels acquisition, ....) and set-up the acquisition parameters. In addition it provides a graphical (through very low-level) interface to monitor the data while they are acquired, that works just with the bare acquisition process on.
