Sardana configuration

There are many configuration points in Sardana and unfortunately there is no single configuration application neither interface to access all of them. This guide goes step-by-step through the Sardana system configuration process and lists all of the configuration points linking to documents with more detailed explanation. It starts from configuration of the Spock client, going through the MacroServer and finally ending on the Device Pool.

This chapter will not document itself all the different configuration possibilities and will just link you to other documents explaining them in details.


At the time of writing, Sardana system can run only as Tango device server and most of the configurations are accessible via the Tango device properties. One can easily change them with the Jive client application.
