Snapshots of MEDM screens
I wrote a web page which shows snapshots of MEDM screens generated by Yoich's script (e-log #1206).
This page refreshes itself every 5 minutes automatically.
The .html file is generated by /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/bin/genHtml.pl
This script generates the .html file contains snapshots listed on /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/etc/medmScreens.txt every 5 minutes with cron.
When you wont to display other screens, please edit this .txt file and wait 5 minutes!
To make thumbnails, I wrote /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/bin/genThumbnail.pl
This script reads /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/etc/medmScreens.txt, too.
(Sometimes, it makes thumbnails with larger storage...)
I wrote scripts to take snapshots of MEDM screens in the background.
These scripts work even on a computer without a physical display attached.
You don't need to have X running.
So now the scripts run on nodus every 5 minutes from cron.
The screen shots are saved in /cvs/cds/caltech/statScreen/images/
There is a wiki page for the scripts.
Someone has to make a nice web page summarizing the captured images.
