Schematic showing the possible online data processing paths currently available or under development. These pipelines run in real-time on the IBM Blue Gene/P supercomputer that comprises the core of LOFAR’s online processing system (see Sect. 6.1). This schematic illustrates that many processing steps can be selected or deselected as necessary. Pipelines can also be run in parallel with, for example, the incoming station datastream being split off to form both correlated and beam-formed data simultaneously. The imaging and beam-formed data pipelines are indicated separately. The online triggering component of the CR UHEP experiment currently under development is also shown (see Sect. 13.5).
