CRAB3 What works now, what soon, what never

Complete: 5 Go to SWGuideCrab

This is a quick summary of Crab3 features roadmap, more details are in the CRAB3 Release plan

It is not a list of all Crab3 functionalities and all differences from Crab2.

This page is mostly meant to answer the question: should I move this workflow of mine from Crab2 to Crab3 ?

Works now (last update : December 2014 )

  1. run cmsRun on a dataset knowm to DBS
    • also supports Parents
  2. run cmsRun to produce simulated MC events, including LHE input
    • also supports indicating number of events per lumi
  3. run a custom script in place of cmsRun

Planned coming functionalities

  1. coexistence of Crab3 and CMSSW in the same shell environemnt
  2. multicrab like behavior (via custom python scripts)
  3. some way to do the equivalent of local submission
  4. a mechanism to pull small output files to local submission UI bypassing the user's remote StorageElement

Things that we will never support again

  1. stage out files in a random location and yet publish in DBS
