Every RHIC physics store is analyzed, with key components updated
to a spreadsheet, to identify and monitor any improvements or degra-
dations in performance. With physics stores lasting between 50 min-
utes (optimal store length of 7.3 GeV Au in Run14) and 20 hours (store
length of 100 GeV Zr and Ru stores in Run18), manual analysis be-
comes a time consuming endeavor. To reduce the time required by
operators to update the spreadsheet data, a program was written in
Python to automatically analyze every store. An overview of the data
analyzed is given, and the programs used to analyze each store are
