The Australian Synchrotron has always required extensive operational statistics for the accelerators documenting the frequency and severity of faults that interrupt user beam, as well as demands on the operators' time. For years this has been accomplished through the Systems Operations Log (SOL) a web based elog created for fault accounting and as general logging software developed entirely by operators. Since last year senior management has made it a priority for beamlines to similarly account for their downtime - so we've adapted SOL to allow the beamlines to have analogous downtime accounting, among other upgrades.
