Mercury is a computer management and information system designed specifically to operate the Berkeley Marvell NanoLab and to use laboratory resources efficiently. The components of Mercury are a relational database management system (Ingres), daemons (background processes), and clients, in a dual, three tier application. This report describes the system design, database details, implementation technologies, and it gives some detailed examples. The Mercury system has been in real-time operation since December 2009 in the UC Berkeley NanoLab.
