The ADCore/iocBoot directory contains a file called EXAMPLE_commonPlugins.cmd. This file should be copied to commonPlugins.cmd and edited for site-specific requirements. commonPlugins.cmd is loaded by all of the example driver IOC startup scripts. It loads a set of plugins which are typically useful for detectors IOCs. Each detector medm screen has links to related displays for each of the common plugins. While this set of plugins is often useful and sufficient, users are free to add or remove plugins from this set for their own IOCs. New medm displays will typically need to be created if that is done, to have the required links to related displays.

The following medm screen shows the status of all of the common plugins at a glance, with links to bring up the detailed screen for each.
