Unification of NSLS-II data sources

Project description


|build_status| |coverage| |pypi_version| |license|

Databroker is a data access tool built around the Bluesky Data Model_. The data it manages may be from ingested files, captured results of a Python-based data analysis, or experimental data acquired using the Bluesky Run Engine.

  • Provide a consistent programmatic interface to data, regardless of storage details like file format or storage medium.
  • Provide metadata and data in a coherent bundle, using standard widely-used Python and SciPy data structures.
  • Support fast, flexible search over metadata.
  • Enable software tools to operate seamlessly on a mixture of live-streaming data from the Bluesky Run Engine and saved data from Databroker.

Databroker is developed in concert with Suitcase. Suitcase does data writing, and databroker does the reading. Databroker builds on Intake, a generic data access tool (outside of the Bluesky Project).

============== ============================================================== PyPI pip install databroker Conda pip install -c nsls2forge databroker Source code Documentation ============== ==============================================================

The bundle of metadata and data looks like this, for example.

.. code:: python

run BlueskyRun uid='4a794c63-8223-4893-895e-d16e763188a8' exit_status='success' 2020-03-07 09:17:40.436 -- 2020-03-07 09:28:53.173 Streams: * primary * baseline

Additional user metadata beyond what is shown is stored in run.metadata. The bundle contains some number of logical tables of data ("streams"). They can be accessed by name and read into a standard data structure from xarray_.

.. code:: python

Dimensions:                   (time: 411)
  * time                      (time) float64 1.584e+09 1.584e+09 ... 1.584e+09
Data variables:
    I0                        (time) float64 13.07 13.01 12.95 ... 9.862 9.845
    It                        (time) float64 11.52 11.47 11.44 ... 4.971 4.968
    Ir                        (time) float64 10.96 10.92 10.88 ... 4.761 4.763
    dwti_dwell_time           (time) float64 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 ... 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0
    dwti_dwell_time_setpoint  (time) float64 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 ... 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0
    dcm_energy                (time) float64 1.697e+04 1.698e+04 ... 1.791e+04
    dcm_energy_setpoint       (time) float64 1.697e+04 1.698e+04 ... 1.791e+04

Common search queries can be done with a high-level Python interface.

.. code:: python

>>> from databroker.queries import TimeRange

Custom queries can be done with the MongoDB query language_.

.. code:: python

>>> query = {
...    "motors": {"$in": ["x", "y"]},  # scanning either x or y
...    "temperature" {"$lt": 300},  # temperature less than 300
...    "sample.element": "Ni",
... }
