Database configuration:

The Configuration database is installed on the Oracle RAC. It can be accesses under the name of "CONFDB".

Each group will have an account and all database tables will be duplicated. The current groups are: velo, rich, calo, muon, l0mu, l0ca, l0pu, it, tt, tfc, ecs, hlt, online, daq (not fully decided).

Also the connectivity informations of the database will be stored in separate tables.


  • conf_con_admin, conf_con_writer, conf_con_reader (for the connectivity part of the database).
  • For each group there a are 3 users: conf_[group name]_admin, conf_[group name]_writer, conf_[group name]_reader.

Installation of the necessary PVSS components:

  • Install PVSS
  • Install the fwComponent installation tool from (if not already installed). This is needed for installing PVSS framework components. Be sure that the latest version of the tool release is installed. This might not have the same version as the tool in the latest PVSS release. The can be found at:
  • Install the Configuration DB framework component (by Piotr Golonka). The same observation as for the installation tool applies also here. Unzip the software and use the PVSS tool from the previous step to complete installation. You can find it at the same URL as above.
  • Start the Configuration DB panel from PVSS and create a new database connection (using the admin user). The database schema will be created automatically and after this the writer user can be used for storing/retrieving data.

TODO: make sure that the components are available in /sw/pvss and add reference to them; screenshots of installing pvss components plus database configuration.
