D3PD Analysis in SFrame


The manTree package contains a set of classes for storing physics objects for final analysis. It can be used outside of athena, for example in SFrame. With the increasing size of data sets, for 8 TeV analysis onwards manTree ntuples shall not be created. Instead D3PD ntuples can be read into SFrame and then analysed either as D3PDs or converted to manTree objects at run time to allow existing analysis code to be used. The recommended way to compile the package is to follow the instructionsbelow.

Analysis Framework

In order to do a complete analysis, there are a set of packages provided by ATLAS for applying common prescriptions. These packages are made available through the TopRootCore package and

we interface to these packages using the topUtils package.

First Time Setup

The following instructions should be followed to setup up & compile sframe, manTree and the common analysis packages:

Commands to be entered into the terminal start with '>'

Export CERN_USER variable:
> export CERN_USER=yourcernlxplususername

Setup root core (note this also sets up root v5.28.00):
> source /nfs/software/AtlasSoftware/RootCore/Root_v528_Summer2012Data/RootCore/scripts/

Export SVNMAN variable:
> export SVNMAN=svn+ssh://$

Go to a directory where you want to work from:
> cd somedir

Check out sframe:
> svn co SFrameArea
> cd SFrameArea

Build sframe:
> source ./
> make

Check out manTree and D3PD packages:
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/manTree/trunk manTree
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/SFToolInterfaces/trunk SFToolInterface
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/convertD3PDObjects/trunk convertD3PDObjects
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/d3pdSFrameBase/trunk d3pdSFrameBase
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/topUtils/trunk topUtils
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/PlottingUtil/trunk PlottingUtil
> svn co $SVNMAN/SFrame/exampleD3PDCycle/trunk exampleD3PDCycle

Build manTree packages:
> cd manTree
> make
> cd ../SFToolInterfaces
> make
> cd ../convertD3PDObjects
> make
> cd ../d3pdSFrameBase
> make
> cd ../topUtils
> make
> cd ../PlottingUtil
> make
> cd ../exampleManTreeCycle
> make

Make a soft link to the RootCore par file (needed for proof running):
ln -s $ROOTCOREDIR/../RootCore.par .

Setup for Each Session

Each time you start a new terminal and want to work on the analysis you need to do the following steps:

Go to your sframe directory:
> cd pathto/SFrameArea

Export CERN_USER variable:
> export CERN_USER=yourcernlxplususername

Setup root core (also sets up root v5.28):
> source /nfs/software/AtlasSoftware/RootCore/Root_v528_Summer2012Data/RootCore/scripts/

setup sframe:
> source ./

It's probably most convenient to put these commands into a script to save typing them in each time.

Running the Example Cycle

There is an example sframe cycle in exampleManTreeCycle. It can be run with the following (don't forget the setup commands):

> cd exampleManTreeCycle
> sframe_main config/TestCycle_config.xml

Converting manTreeSFrame cycles

It was intended that the user code would be as similar as possible to when running over manTrees, however some changes were necessary. For an example of how these changes are implemented you may wish to compare src/TestCycle.cxx located in exampleD3PDCycle with its equivalent located in exampleManTreeCycle.
