Identity-provider selection


In the Identity-provider section, choose which identity you will use to authenticate to access the Virgo Interferometer Monitor (VIM) pages.

Using the Virgo Interferometer Monitor (VIM)

VIM provides current and historical plots and information relating to the status of the Advanced Virgo interferometer and to the related on-line analysis applications.

You are accessing the General-Availability instance of VIM, which participates in the international Research & Scholarship Identity Federation.

The General-Availablity instance of VIM provides data with a time delay of the order of a few minutes with respect to the internal, production instance.

Note also that the General-Availablity instance is a read-only version, so ,even after authentication, you cannot modify your page configurations or resources. This can be done on the internal instance only.

Should you wish to modify configurations or resources, please connect to the Internal instance, following pre-authentication at the level of the Cascina firewall using your local Active Directory credentials.

Also be aware that some of the links within the VIM pages may point to other internal applications, which have not yet been migrated to the Federated Authentication. Also in this case, please follow the Cascina firewall pre-authentication step (Further information on this subject is available here).
