Steady state operation of the Wendelstein 7-X fusion experiment makes it indispensable to visualize a representative portion of the measured data online. A three tier concept for online data monitoring is introduced and focused upon four main points:
• the generation of representative raw monitoring data within a data acquisition tier without disturbing the data acquisition
• the online analysis of all raw monitoring data by a monitor server tier including the synchronization of data from different sources
• the visualization of the monitoring data by a monitor client tier for local and remote participation
• the communication between the participating tiers
The current prototypic implementation is presented and the techniques used as well as the benefits achieved are discussed.
