I installed the NDS2 Client onto the workstations today using the instructions that Zach put onto the Wiki with a couple of modifications.

1) Instead of the adding path stuff in Matlab, I added the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and MATLABPATH variables into the .cshrc as instructed by JZ's NDS2 Wiki.

2) I installed the stuff into the shared /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/linux64/ partition so that it works now on all the 64-bit CentOS 5.5 workstations.

To run it you do:

> kinit albert.einstein

> matlab -nodesktop -nosplash

> help NDS2_GetData

(set the server to the NDS2 server that you like - the example in the help is fine)

> result = NDS2_GetData({'L1:LSC-DARM_ERR'}, 957313530, 10, server);

> plot(result.data)

Now you can get any of the S6 data super fast.

(** Remember to run kdestroy as soon as you are finished so that no one else in the control room can use your personal credentials. **)
