  Research groups operating large experiments are often spread out around the globe, so that it can be a challenge to stay informed about current operations. We have therefore developed a solution to integrate a slow control system’s alarm and logging systems with the chat system used for communication between experimenters. This integration is not intended to replace a control screen containing the same information, but offers additional possibilities: - Instead of having to open the control system’s displays, which might involve setup work (VPN, remote desktop connections, …), a web interface or an app can be used to track important events in the system. - Messages can easily be filtered and routed to different recipients (individual persons or chat rooms). - Messages can be annotated and commented on. The system presented uses Apache Camel to forward messages received via JMS to Rocket. Chat. Since no binding to Rocket. Chat was available, this interface has been implemented. On the sending side, a C++ logging library that integrates with EPICS IOCs and interfaces with JMS has been designed.
For the Belle II PXD collaboration.
