How to start new custom partitions in test bed

Login into tbed

To be able to access tbed you need to have the access rights. You can follow the instructions here: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/viewauth/Atlas/Lab4Testbed#Accounts

That link also contain very useful information about tbed machines, users, file system, how to log, etc. Another good resource to learn is the ATLAS DAQ Trainging

To log into tbed (a particular machine will be choosen on a RR basis):

<!-- SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->
sh -X pc-tbed-pub
<!-- end SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->

Creating a partition

Go to any AFS-accesible folder. For example you public work folder:

<!-- SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->
cd /afs/cern.ch/work/m/[YourUsername]/public
<!-- end SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->

Source the release (note: the release number will change in the future. Maybe also the path)

<!-- SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->
source /afs/cern.ch/atlas/project/tdaq/cmt/bin/cmtsetup.sh tdaq-06-01-01
<!-- end SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->

Use PartitionMaker to create the initial partition files (use the -h to see options on how to generate the partition):

<!-- SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->
pm_part_hlt.py --hltpus-per-node 2
<!-- end SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->

A file part_hlt_[YourUsername].data.xml will be created in the current folder with all the necessary configuration for your new partition. The partition is by default called "part_hlt_[YourUsername]" (just as an exercise you can check this by opening the XML and finding the "Partition" object)

Starting the partition

Start the partition you created before:

<!-- SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->
setup_daq -p part_hlt_xxx -d ./part_hlt_xxx.data.xml
<!-- end SyntaxHighlightingPlugin -->

After a little while the Run Control GUI should show up

To control a run (Initial->configure->Start->Hold->Stop ...), the applications, controllers, segments, etc check the training here. Also read about the RunControl here.

Also you can learn about all the Control and Configuration services here: https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/Atlas/DaqHltControlAndConfiguration
