Hello Chris,

thanks for your answer,

This will be a cooled receiver for some application in radio astronomy. 
We are for now not interested in the data that will be "received" but 
rather in the data that characterise our system.

Exactly. My current versioning for any data uses git. Is this somehow 
similar to versioning in oodt?

I am confused now, by "system" I mean our receiver system, so I need to 
log info for versions (I guess, this would be covered if the versioning 
were somehow similar to git)

My first two attempts at installing have failed so far: could not 
interact with resource manager via web interface. Do I need to do that 
via cmd line? Web interface also sporadically showed nothing, but error 
was not stable... Do I need some special connectivity from my frontend 
to the server?? (server did not log any error)

Thanks, will do that once again and hope for the best.

Done. ;-)
