Abstract: ACSIS is a digital auto-correlator being built at the DRAO to handle array heterodyne receivers on the JCMT. This paper describes the online reduction, archiving and display system that will be delivered with the instrument. Spectrum calibration and gridding into cubes will be performed by a system of distributed objects running on an array of Linux PCs, offering high performance at low cost. The system configuration is recipe-driven to allow for changing observing methods and computing hardware. The system is built using AIPS++ classes and objects communicate via the Glish message bus.
