    An electronic logbook is used to keep track of all information related to data taking. For the moment, the original is only available from CERN. However a mirror is also visible outside with password.
    The trigger rates can be followed also outside the Compass domain, on this link.


    The data are transferred to the computing centre via network and recorded on the central tape system (using CASTOR storage manager). This system is known as Central Data Recording (CDR).
