As listmode data files continue to grow larger, access via any kind of network connections becomes more and more trouble because of the enormous traffic generated. The limited speed of transmission via modem makes analysis almost impossible. This unit presents a solution to these problems, one that involves installation at the central storage facility of a small computer program called a Web servlet. Operating in concert with a Web server, the servlet assists the analysis by extracting the display array from the data file and organizing its transmission over the network to a remote client program that creates the data display. The author discusses a recent implementation of this solution and the results for model transmission of two typical data files. The system greatly speeds access to remotely stored data yet retains the flexibility of manipulation expected with local access.
