Instrumenting the Scan Coordinator for Latency Reduction


The idea here would be to instrument the scan coordinator with logging facilities so that we could determine the questions:

What is the Slowest Device?

The answer may be surprising. I know in some fast dump modes of the spectrometer, the antenna is often faster.

Which Phases are Most Time Consuming?

In other words, are we spending/wasting the most time in activating or stopping? Which devices and what modes/observing styles are best/worst?

How Accurate are Start Time Estimations?

Is there a consistent pattern of 'padding' start times? Can it be reduced?
