Installation and learning guide Diamant Guided Session # 1• DmtGS01-1 Ecrin 4.00 © KAPPA Engineering 2005 Doc. V. 4.00.03 • 08-05 Diamant Guided Session # 1 A01 • Introduction Diamant is the Data Management module of Ecrin. The objective of this session is to illustrate the key features of Diamant in its application to Permanent Gauge Data. You will be guided through the startup of a project and the loading of Permanent Gauge Data; the loading will illustrate the data filtration based on wavelets, and the data dynamic updating. This session is actually the first part of the Ecrin Guided Session #1. If you have a Saphir and a Topaze license, you may extend the present session by joining the EcrGS01 at section D01 when you are finished. This will illustrate the overall workflow using the Ecrin integrated environment to transfer data, technical object, and models between the data and analysis modules. A01.1 • Requirements The rate and pressure data used in this session consist of two files: EcrGS01q.txt, EcrGS01p.txt. The two ASCII files are stored in a zipped file named “” which can be downloaded from the KAPPA site, use the menu WEB in the main menu bar of Ecrin and choose to connect to Ecrin download. Note: After unzipping, the files will occupy 150 Mb on the hard disk. If Ecrin has been installed from a KAPPA CD, the zip file will already have been copied to the Examples subdirectory. B01 • Diamant overview Before going through the tutorial itself, the following sections give a brief description of the main software characteristics and key features. B01.1 • Diamant Master Diamant Master is a “super” version of Diamant which aim is to centralize on a server the creation of the data structure and the data filtration, and to make this information easily available to workstation users. Diamant Master and Diamant are the same executable and the behavior depends only on the license. This means that to run in Master mode, you need a specific privilege. Diamant Master has several functions not present in Diamant Workstation, namely: The ability to read data from data servers other than SQL, Oracle, or those with an ODBC interface. Access to PI through its OLEDB interface is in particular restricted to the Diamant Master The ability to create a mirror in BLIF format of any data source. This option is a must when dealing with large amounts of data and a data server with slow access. BLIF stands for “Binary Large Index Files”. This is a KAPPA internal format providing a fast data access in a compact form. The ability to write back a channel to a database, in particular Oracle, and thus make it When opening a Diamant Master file with a Diamant Reader, you can drag-and-drop any channel to your Saphir or Topaze analysis.
