FASER Computing Resources

This page summarizes the computing resources available to FASER (including FASERnu). At the moment this just covers storage space at CERN.

Disk Space at CERN

Space for commissioning data

  • We have a 20 TB eos space called /eos/project/f/faser-commissioning/ (accessible through lxplus).
  • Access (read/write) is controlled through the e-groups: cernbox-project-faser-commissioning-readers / cernbox-project-faser-commissioning-writers which can be edited by people on the e-group: cernbox-project-faser-commissioning-admins
  • The eos space is linked to the faser service account (owned by Jamie - ask him if you need the password).

  • This space is for storing calibration data, and the output of calibration analysis. (Mostly related to the tracker commissioning, but also some calorimeter / scintillator related calibration data will be stored there).

  • This space was created on 13/7/2020, before that the tracker calibration data was stored on /eos/user/f/fasersct/ (associated with the secondary account of Yosuke called fasersct) - but this was limited to 1TB of space which is now filled.

Space for FASERnu pilot run data

  • 20 TB eos space called /eos/project/f/fasernu-pilot-run/ (accessible through lxplus).
  • Access (read/write) is controlled through the e-groups: cernbox-project-fasernu-pilot-run-readers (anyone in this egroup can read in the project space) cernbox-project-fasernu-pilot-run-writers (anyone in this egroup can read, write and delete in the project space). Everybody in the faser-all e-group can signup by themselves.
  • Admin group is : cernbox-project-fasernu-pilot-run-admins
  • The eos space is linked to the fasernu.service account (owned by Aki - ask him if you need the password).

  • This space is for storing the pilot run data, and the MC data.
  • This space was created on 15/7/2020
  • The following 2 folders are pre-created:
  • /eos/project/f/fasernu-pilot-run/www/ (folder for hosting an EOS-site-type website)
  • /eos/project/f/fasernu-pilot-run/public/ (public folder for all CERN authenticated users
