The !CHAOS project is aiming at the development of a new concept of control system and data acquisition framework providing, with a high level of abstraction, all the services needed for controlling and managing a large scientific, or non-scientific, infrastructure.
!CHAOS redefines Control System paradigm by introducing the new concept of Control Service, i.e. a distributed, scalable provider offering to a general class of clients high-performance services such us data sharing, commands dispatching, continuous historical data archiving, configuration tools, middle-layer resource management etc.
Key features and development strategies of !CHAOS are:
- scalability of performances and size
- integration of all functionalities
- abstraction of services, devices and data
- easy and modular customization
- extensive data caching for performance boost
- use of high-performance internet sw technologies
!CHAOS use the standalone BSON C++ implementation, the source is exstracted from orginal mongodb opensource distribution found on http://www.mongodb.org/ (http://www.10gen.com/) "BSON" stands for "binary JSON" - a binary storage format that is JSON inspired. This distribution merely rips it out of the bson repository into its own.
