The method has been developed for FERMI@Elettra but with a general approach on the particularities of FEL machines such as a high repetition frequency and significant shot to shot fluctuations. The software has two operating options: a mode, aimed at online usage, which only detects peaks and their corresponding valleys, offering no information about the peaks themselves; and a more comprehensive mode that fits peak functions (Gaussian, Lorentzian etc…) to the spectrum based on initial guesses of the fitting parameters. The algorithm can provide a collection of simple but valuable variables such as number of peaks, peak separation and ratio between peak heights, as well as more specialized variables like peak width statistics and decomposition of the raw spectrum in basic components.
