Tutorial to run simple analysis on GRPC May 2010 test

Introduction on data format

The data are now stored in LCIO format in 2 kinds of collections:

  • Raw data, i.e DIF buffer, are stored as an integer array in a GenericObject collection called RU_XDAQ
  • RawCalorimeterHits, the frames are decoded and hits are stored in a RawCalorimeterHit collection called DHCALRawHits

The format of the RawCalorimeterHIt is the following:

Table 1: Format of the RawCalorimeter hit for DHCAL
Field Content
ID0 bit 0-7 DIF Id
ID0 bit 8-15 Asic Id
ID0 bit 16-21 Channel
ID0 bit 22-31 Module
ID1 Bunch crossing time (in clock unit)
Amplitude threshold's bits
TimeStamp distance in clock unit to trigger

The slow control parameters of HardRoc (version 1 or 2 ) are stored as parameters of the run header with the following syntax:



The code can be downloaded from svn

The main class is the DHCalEventReader, it controls the input/output of the data. It can read and write LCIO files and also build the RU_XDAQ entries from a memory buffer. It builds the DHCALRawHits collection from the RU_XDAQ one. Finally it includes a mechanism to run several analysis on the built event.

--++ Installation

Two additional packages has to be installed to run this code:

  • LCIO in the directory pointed by the variable LCIODIR
  • ROOT in the directory pointed by the variable ROOTSYS

--+++ Compilation

The following lines have to be added to the .bashrc file to use the makefile

export ROOTSYS=/usr/local/root
export PATH=${ROOTSYS}/bin:$PATH
export LCIODIR=/data/online/lcio/v01-12/
