Abstract: Chandra's Monitoring and Trends Analysis (M&TA) team utilizes a series of database tables to store binned information about spacecraft configuration and condition over the life of the mission. The DATASEEKER was developed as an efficient means to specify a particular set of this data and have it conveniently downloaded in a usable format. In Chandra's brief operational life of a little over two years in orbit, there are already well over 10 GB of data stored in approximately 50 relational database tables for the Science Operation Team to sift through. DATASEEKER has made it possible to discriminately pull out small subsets of these data in a matter of minutes.
