This chapter provides an overview over supported databases.


SeisComP can store and read information from a relational database management system (RDBMS). Supported are basically all existing RDBMS for which a plugin can be written. Plugins are provided for

  • MySQL / MariaDB

  • PostgreSQL

  • SQLite3

The database schema used is well defined and respected by all modules which access the database. It is similar to the SeisComP XML schema and the C++ / Python class hierarchy of the datamodel namespace / package.

The following information is stored in the database:

The configuration just covers the station bindings. Application/module specific configurations (all .cfg files) are not stored in the database.
