O2O for L1 Trigger

CMSSW module layout (CondTools/L1Trigger/plugins)

Communicating online keys to CMSSW

L1TriggerKeyDummyProd (ESProducer for L1TriggerKeyRcd)

  • Get key values and record@type names from .cfg file
  • Instantiate a L1TriggerKey object and put in EventSetup

L1TriggerKeyListDummyProd (ESProducer for L1TriggerKeyListRcd)

  • Instantiate an empty L1TriggerKeyList and put in EventSetup

L1SubsystemKeysOnlineProd (ESProducer for L1TriggerKeyRcd with label "SubsystemKeysOnly")

  • Get TSC key via ParameterSet
  • Get L1TriggerKeyList from EventSetup
  • Check if L1TriggerKeyList contains TSC key
    • If yes, then throw DataAlreadyPresentException
    • If no,
      • Get corresponding subsystem keys from OMDS
      • Instantiate a L1TriggerKey object and put in EventSetup
  • Optional: set a parameter to ignore L1TriggerKeyList and force creation of L1TriggerKey. This supports the (hopefully rare) use case of running the emulator directly off OMDS. This option is also used when one wishes to overwrite an existing key.

L1ObjectKeysOnlineProdBase (ESProducer for L1TriggerKeyRcd with a user-defined subsystem label; abstract base class for subsystem ESProducers that determine object keys for a given subsystem key)

  • Get L1TriggerKey with label "SubsystemKeysOnly" from EventSetup
  • If DataAlreadyPresentException caught, then rethrow --- all configuration data is already in ORCON
  • Otherwise,
    • Copy "SubsystemKeysOnly" L1TriggerKey to a new L1TriggerKey
    • Call fillObjectKeys(), implemented by each subsystem, to fill corresponding object keys from OMDS
    • Put new L1TriggerKey in EventSetup with user-defined subsystem label

L1TriggerKeyOnlineProd (ESProducer for L1TriggerKeyRcd)

  • Get list of subsystem labels from ParameterSet --- manipulating this list allows for run-time decisions about which payloads to write
  • Instantiate new L1TriggerKey to hold complete list of object keys for all subsystems (for a given TSC key)
  • For each label, get corresponding L1TriggerKey from EventSetup
    • If DataAlreadyPresentException caught, then rethrow --- all configuration data is already in ORCON
    • Otherwise, merge objects keys into master list
  • Put new L1TriggerKey in EventSetup

Putting configuration objects into EventSetup

Dummy ESProducers for configuration object records in L1TriggerConfig

L1ConfigOnlineProdBase (ESProducer for configuration object records; templated abstract base class for subsystem ESProducers that construct configuration objects from data stored in OMDS; one ESProducer per object)

  • Get L1TriggerKey from EventSetup
    • If DataAlreadyPresentException caught, then do nothing --- all configuration objects are already in ORCON
    • Otherwise, get L1TriggerKeyList from EventSetup, check if L1TriggerKeyList has object key
      • If yes, then throw DataAlreadyPresentException --- configuration object is already in ORCON
      • If no, call makeObject(), implemented by each subsystem
        • Get data from OMDS via SQL queries
        • Construct C++ object and put in EventSetup
  • At this point, EventSetup contains only objects that need a new entry in L1TriggerKeyList (i.e., need to be written to ORCON)
  • Optional: set a parameter to ignore L1TriggerKeyList and force creation of configuration objects. This supports the (hopefully rare) use case of running the emulator directly off OMDS. This option is also used when one wishes to overwrite an existing key.

Writing configuration objects from EventSetup to ORCON with empty IOVs

L1CondDBPayloadWriter (EDAnalyzer to be used with EmptySource for highest possible run number (4294967295) so that the latest version of L1TriggerKeyList is picked up)

  • Get L1TriggerKey from EventSetup
    • If DataAlreadyPresentException caught, then do nothing --- all configuration data is already in ORCON
    • Otherwise,
      • Write L1TriggerKey to ORCON with no IOV if TSC key is non-null (optional)
      • Get L1TriggerKeyList from EventSetup
      • Add L1TriggerKey token to L1TriggerKeyList
        • Print error message if TSC key already in list (should only happen with dummy configurations)
      • For each record@type with non-null object key (optional),
        • Get configuration object from EventSetup
          • If DataAlreadyPresentException caught, then do nothing --- configuration object is already in ORCON
          • Otherwise,
            • Write configuration object to ORCON with no IOV
            • Add configuration object payload token to L1TriggerKeyList
              • Print error message if subsystem key already in list (should only happen with dummy configurations)
  • If L1TriggerKeyList has been updated,
    • Get previous run number from EmptySource
    • Write L1TriggerKeyList to ORCON. The IOV for L1TriggerKeyList is meaningless. So, the first time L1CondDBPayloadWriter is run for a given IOV tag, the IOV since-time is assigned to be 1. On each subsequent running of L1CondDBPayloadWriter, the IOV since-time is incremented by one. Thus, there is a pool of run numbers that can be used for this IOV that goes from 1 up to the current run number.

Options to write only L1TriggerKey or configuration data allow payload objects to be written one at a time, instead of all at once. L1TriggerKeyList will always be updated, if necessary, with the IOV advancing each time as described above.

There is also an option to overwrite any existing keys in L1TriggerKeyList, in case a previous payload object needs to be corrected. This option should be used with L1SubsystemKeysOnlineProd and L1ConfigOnlineProdBase set to force generation of its objects; otherwise, the new objects will not be created because the key already exists. If possible, the previous payload object should first be removed by hand from ORCON (using the commandline tools).

Setting IOVs for configuration objects in ORCON

L1CondDBIOVWriter (EDAnalyzer to be used with EmptySource for next run number)

  • Get new run number from EmptySource
  • Get current L1TriggerKeyList from EventSetup (ORCON)
  • Get TSC key for the next run from parameter
  • If TSC key is not empty,
    • Use TSC key and L1TriggerKeyList to find next run's L1TriggerKey token
    • Update IOV sequence for this token with since-time = new run
    • Read L1TriggerKey directly from ORCON using token
  • Otherwise, get L1TriggerKey from EventSetup (for use with Run Settings, where there is no corresponding L1TriggerKey in ORCON)
  • For each record@type in L1TriggerKey with non-null object key,
    • Use L1TriggerKeyList to find configuration object payload token
    • Update IOV sequence this record@type with since-time = new run
  • Optional: ignore L1TriggerKey, useful for setting IOVs for objects not tied to the TSC key. In this case, the records and objects to be updated are given in the toPut parameter, and the "TSC key" is used as the (common) object key. The IOV for L1TriggerKey is not updated.
