This application was originally developed at CERN and is part of the generic applications that are built on top of the LSA framework.
It is used to monitor generic cycle based equipment.
For an area in the accelerator (accelerator zone) you can select user (at GSI this might be beamprocess id), the devices and then monitor one or multiple of the device properties.
Ususally the device decides on its own when an updated value needs to be sent. But it is also possible to do a manual read out (get) that is executed instantly.
