DB Tag Collector for the Global-Tag (GTC)

With system proxy settings, without ssh tunneling

https://cms-conddb.cern.ch/gtc/

With ssh tunneling

Starting from the release 44X the inclusion of tags in the GT is handled by this new tool:
https://cms-conddb-int.cern.ch/gtc/

NOTE: while debugging the tool please continue sending the usual mails to the hn as described here

Authentication

The authentication system exploits the CERN Single Sign-on system. As a consequence you will need your NICE/AFS password to login on the site.

Accessing the GTC from outside the CERN network

Currently the GTC is not directly accessible from outside CERN. You will need to setup a tunnel through ssh to be able to browse it.

An example of configuration is:

ssh -D 9999 ${USER}@lxplus.cern.ch

Instead of 9999 you can use other ports (bigger than 1024).

You than need to set the proxy in your browser. E.g in firefox:

Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Network -> Settings
Set SOCKS computer localhost, port 9999 and check SOCKS v5.

NOTE: if your connection uses a proxy, disable it by leaving blank all the proxy fields but the SOCKS one to make all connections through the tunnel.

After that go to https://gtc-prod.cern.ch

Further details on tunneling can be found @:

Testing the tool

A test queue called TEST has been created. Feel free to experiment the tag submission queuing changes for this fake GT cycle.
