An anonymous reader writes "I have been looking for a tool (hopefully open source) that would allow some more intelligent management of data collection. Even better would include some data processing. Specifically I am looking to manage and chronicle raw data collected on hardware (in my case engines) and create a timeline of events (engine shut down, engine repair, parts swap, etc) allow for commenting and searching, etc Is there a good tool for this? I haven't been able to find one. Thanks for the help!
Currently, we just take each file and dump it into a share drive. It's not easily searchable and there is no good means for batch processing it. Data gets lost all the time and multiple groups collect data from the same engine. If we have a question about a particular behavior, we can't search these, we rely on someone remembering about a test and where they put it. PLEASE HELP!"
