AB - ALICE Data Point Service (ADAPOS) is a software architecture being developed for the Run 3 period of LHC, as a part of the effort to transmit conditions data from ALICE Detector Control System (DCS) to GRID, for distributed processing. ADAPOS uses Distributed Information Management (DIM), 0MQ, and ALICE Data Point Processing Framework (ADAPRO). DIM and 0MQ are multi-purpose application-level network protocols. DIM and ADAPRO are being developed and maintained at CERN. ADAPRO is a multi-threaded application framework, supporting remote control, and also real-time features, such as thread affinities, records aligned with cache line boundaries, and memory locking. ADAPOS and ADAPRO are written in C++14 using OSS tools, Pthreads, and Linux API. The key processes of ADAPOS, Engine and Terminal, run on separate machines, facing different networks. Devices connected to DCS publish their state as DIM services. Engine gets updates to the services, and converts them into a binary stream. Terminal receives it over 0MQ, and maintains an image of the DCS state. It sends copies of the image, at regular intervals, over another 0MQ connection, to a readout process of ALICE Data Acquisition.
