This page briefly describes the software tools which allow users to create and access relational databases to store run conditions. The two links below provide a more thorough documentation of this package of scripts.
The above link is a tarball of the source code for the package of batabase interface scripts. It may be unpacked with the command: 'tar xvjf DB_tools.bz2'.
One may login to the database for a command-line interface with read-only permissions as user e02013 by running the following command from any JLab machine:
'mysql -u e02013 -h jmysql -p'. The user will be prompted for a password which may be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. After logging into MySQL, one should type 'use e02013;' in order to gain access to the GEn database.
Examples of useful MySQL commands include:
'SELECT column_name1, column_name2 FROM table_name WHERE (column_name3 > value1) OR (column_name4 = 'string1');'
