Subject: Dynamic alarm server

Hi,

We are currently looking at setting up a dynamic alarm server and have questions regarding its use. 

Our current system has a configuration which defines which IOCs are running on our system. This is updated and changed depending on the experiment that a user is running. At the moment we can generate an xml file from it which contains the alarms we are interested in. This file is then imported into the alarm server database with AlarmConfigTool. Once this is in the database we then restart the alarm server and refresh the alarm server tree view to capture the changes in configuration. This doesn't seem like the correct way to do this, can someone offer some guidance. The sort of thing I would like to do is to send the xml configuration file to the alarm server and have it update its configuration and then notify the clients of this.
We are running IBEX as the client which is using the BEAST alarm CSS component to display the alarms. The configurations are changed by our BlockServer which is written in Python.

Thank you for your help,

John Holt
