Some of the main components of the software that work in the background (and also at the front) to serve the data to you is listed below. All the software is released as open source!

For ingesting data into the database, we developed and use:

  • DBIngestor library (C++)
  • AsciiIngest, uses the DBIngestor library, allows to upload any kind of ascii data using format files to map between data types
  • FofIngest and PmssIngest, use the DBIngestor library for uploading FOF binary files (FOF catalog) and PMss binary files (ART format for particles) directly into database tables
