CMS SAM Analysis test

What it is

verify that CMSSW framework works at the site running cmsRun with a simple configuration file (from CMSWorkbook tutorial) that reads one data file. Does the same as remote analysis but w/o the CRAB wrapper, so that it is fast, simple and can easily be reproduced locally.

How does it work

  • Use latest production CMSSW versions which is available at all T1/T2, so to have same version at all sites
  • Reads in its entirety one data file from /store/data (picked at random each time) from the same dataset replicated at each site: /QCD_pt_0_15/SAM_IDEAL_V9_SAM/GEN-SIM-RAW-RECO
    • This dataset was created ad hoc for this test and it is subscribed to all sites. Picking at random one of the 10 files in the dataset makes the test a bit less trivial
  • No output is being written, and most of the event data are skipped (dropped in output), so the test runs fast.
  • The cmsRun configuration file follows the example in
  • Reads a file from /store/user/test. The file must be manually copied to the site SE for the test to find it. It can be copied with the command
    lcg-cp -b --vo cms -D srmv2 -T srmv2 'srm://' <local_surl>
    , where <local_surl> must be such to copy the file under the right /store/user/test area with the same file name as the original.
