Complete: 2

Goal of this page

This page describes how to configure or use the XMLIdealGeometryESSource.

XML Ideal Geometry Access

There are a number of standard configuration files in Geometry/CMSCommonData/python.

Sampling of configuration files.
purpose parameter set
testing for releases & full sim+reco include "Geometry/CMSCommonData/python/"
for simulation only include "Geometry/CMSCommonData/python/"
for reconstruction only include "Geometry/CMSCommonData/python/"
for ideal extended to include forward detectors include "Geometry/CMSCommonData/python/"
pilot run testing include "Geometry/CMSCommonData/python/"

These are the expected parameters for the XMLIdealGeometryESSource in the CMSSW framework.

name type description default allowed
geomXMLFiles vstring XML files D.D. None path+filename relative to CMSSW src, FileInPath is used on the list of files.
rootNodeName string set the D.D. graph root to this node cms:OCMS DDLogicalPart node name

Example parameter set file for the Ideal Geometry:

Example parameter set file for the Magnetic Field (note, the es_source name MUST be magfield):

magfield = cms.ESSource("XMLIdealGeometryESSource",
    geomXMLFiles = cms.vstring('Geometry/CMSCommonData/data/normal/cmsextent.xml', 
    rootNodeName = cms.string('cmsMagneticField:MAGF')
