17 September 2012 MMT nightly tracking logs: a web-enabled database for continuous evaluation of tracking performance

Abstract
Over the past few years, the MMT Observatory has developed a number of web browser front ends for operation interfaces and staff access to internal databases. Among these is a facility for viewed reduced tracking logs in both time series and FFTs for convenient examination of tracking performance. Part of the back-end software also keeps the tracking data in a searchable database, allowing data over long periods of time to be collected and analyzed to look for trends, the influence of environmental factors on tracking, and help detect tracking degradation in a timely manner.
