6.5 Simulating and Reconstructing events with Fast Simulation

Recipe for 13TeV (CMSSW_9_2_X)

Please check with your PAG/POG if they require specific conditions.

cmsrel CMSSW_9_2_10
cd CMSSW_9_2_10/src

No packages need to be checked, but for the sake of being more organized, you can create and work within FastSimulation/GenProduction.

For simulating a MinBias sample with no PU, use the following cmsDriver command. You always can replace the MinBias generator fragment with your favorite fragment.


cmsDriver.py MinBias_13TeV_pythia8_TuneCUETP8M1_cfi --conditions auto:run2_mc --fast -n 1000 --era Run2_25ns --eventcontent AODSIM -s GEN,SIM,RECOBEFMIX,DIGI:pdigi_valid,RECO --datatier GEN-SIM-DIGI-RECO --beamspot Realistic25ns13TeVEarly2017Collision

To simulate physics samples with PU we show the standard mixing method and we need a MinBias sample to proceed with this example. In the meanwhile private MinBias samples can be generated using the example below.

cmsDriver.py MinBias_13TeV_pythia8_TuneCUETP8M1_cfi --conditions auto:run2_mc --fast -n 1000 --era Run2_25ns --eventcontent FASTPU \
