1 June 1994 Workstation environment for VLT
Author Affiliations +
The VLT Control system is distributed on a number of different computing units. While the real time aspects is dealt with VME-based Local Control Units (LCU) running VxWorks, the high-level control is performed by several workstations running standard Unix. Each workstation will coordinate a group of LCUs logically related by the functions they control.
