Abstract: The high data rates produced by the latest generation of detectors, more efficient sample handling hardware and ever more remote users of the beamlines at Diamond Light Source require advanced data reduction and data analysis tools to maximize the potential benefit to scientists. Here we describe some of our experiment data reduction and analysis steps, including real time image analysis with DIALS, our Fast DP and xia2-based data reduction pipelines, and Fast EP phasing and DIMPLE difference map calculation pipelines that aim to rapidly provide feedback about the recently completed measurements. SynchWeb, an interface to an open source laboratory information management system called ISPyB (co-developed at Diamond and the ESRF), provides a modern, flexible framework for managing samples and visualizing the data from all of these experiments and analyses, including plots, images, and tables of the analysed and reduced data, as well as showing experimental metadata, sample information.
